The healing power of unselfed love

The love that heals isn't an emotion. It's an expression of divine Love itself.

The word love is applied to a broad range of human activity and thought, some of it unifying and sustaining, some of it destructive. Sometimes perplexed at this, we are moved to wonder: Can actual love both heal and destroy?

Yet, despite the confusion and contradictions that cluster about the concept of love, many would agree that in some way love is the answer to most problems that confront us. So the searching heart asks, "What is the love that does not pollute, that does not kill (in the name of love), that lasts, that cares for each one? What is the love that heals? Where do I find it, and how do I learn to express it?"
