Leo Tolstoy wrote: "The most difficult thing-but an essential one-is to love life, to love it even while one suffers, because Life is All. Life is God, and to love Life means to love God".
So many times I hear people say if God is all Love and God is Love why are there bad things in the world. And I answer back because we do not love all life and perhaps we do not love that which is…God. True love is connecting with the God-Self of all creation. Loving yourself is connecting with God…it is so easy to blame others or the Spirit, whatever you choose to call it, rather than asking what am I contributing to the negative or positive flow of life.
