Love dissolves hate

As our family was boarding a train during a European vacation, my husband, who had gone ahead with our luggage, told us the woman sharing our compartment was furious and didn't want us there. I quietly replied, "We all come from the same place." My family knew I meant that in reality we all are God's children and that this gives us a basis for loving each other. God loves each of us, and we, as divine Love's reflections, reflect His all-inclusive love.

As I sat down next to the woman, she jabbed me with her fingers and continued this for some time. When I greeted her and asked a few questions in her language, she told me to mind my own business. But instead of being annoyed, I felt a great love for her and mentally included her in our family circle.
