John has been a world traveler and has been very involved in helping persons who have been disenfranchised by present system. Victims All;

Love crucial to Humankinds existence

Need all of these. (Because we are Human.)

And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three, and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13. 13) It is a fact that Love makes the world go round. But sadly when most people think of love they think of romantic love. Love is both romantic and decisive. We must come to the realization that the choices we make will determine our attitudes and our attitude determines our level of happiness. There are two major emotions in this life and they both affect the person holding them and others. They can both spread like a plague. Those emotions are "Hate" and "Love" and as is obvious, both are four letter words. We make the decision to either love or to hate.

Love is Crucial.

Without love there can be no compassion, no forgiveness, no caring for the unfortunate. The first person that we must love is ourselves, if we cannot love ourselves then we do have a very real difficulty in loving others. We will also have problems with the necessary Factors such as Justice, equity, and with fairness. We will be unable to have compassion for ourselves or other people. We will not be able to show any real charity towards others or ourselves.

To be Faithless is to be hopeless.

To have Faith and Hope, Love is an indispensable factor. Faith plus Love give us the ability to both love ourselves and others. Faith, Hope, and Love allow us to reach out with justice and caring compassion to others who are lost, destitute, depressed and who feel worthless. Faith, Hope and Love help us to build and improve our ability and to reach out to others and inward to ourselves. We will have better relationships with others.

Love gives hope.

With love we can impart hope to those who have lost faith. We can give them the feeling of being valued, and the knowledge that they are worthwhile valuable people. We demonstrate the love of God and bring a good measure of joy to their lives. We affirm them. All of us with no exception, have a strong need to feel loved and that we are accepted and Valuable to our Brothers and Sisters within our common Humanity. We need our 'Self Worth" to be affirmed by others. We all have a need to feel needed.

Mother Earth needs our decision.

Without Love we can not have faith or trust. If we really make a decision to reach out with love and acceptance to just one other person,, our world will be a better place. In our giving of an agape love we can make our earth a greener planet and improve the lives of those around us, and join all of humanity into one great just society, with equality and acceptance for all.

The kingdom is ours to build.

A house is built just one piece at a time, depending on the material used. So must we develop the societies that we would all like to live in and with. Give some thought, that is discerning concentrated thought to the truth that we can in this manner change our world for the better and so improve our lives and bring joy to those we come in contact with.

Grasp Affinity for love.

Develop an affinity for Love, thus you will improve your ability to improve your gift of giving of hope and justice to all that we come in contact with. We can reach out with compassion.

Build a Paradise of Hope and Faith

We build HOPE and Faith By sharing and giving love. With the growing of LOVE in ourselves we increase our own levels of Faith and Hope. Pray and work towards a better world. One with justice and peace and acceptance of all.

Love yourself. Love your neighbor. Love all others.

Love yourself. Love others. Love our world. Move towards perfection of and in all of society. Work towards being the "Best" you that you can be and never compare yourself to others. Strive only to be you!!!

Send Love; Not Missiles.

When we send and give genuine Love there is a lesson that we have won. The lesson is that when we have Love to give to the unlovable we receive copious amounts of love in return. With love we build Unity. With love we Disengage acts of Disunity. We refuse Division.

Jesus left us the "Command" to (Love one another as I have loved you)..
