Higher

“You shall love, whether you like it or not. Love is not only a feeling, love is a duty. ‘You shall love.’ Love is a command. And you say, ‘I can’t command my emotions; they come and go like clouds.’ To that Christ says, ‘You shall love, whether you like it or not.’ … To commit yourself is to run the risk of failure, the risk of betrayal. But a man who makes a mistake can repent. You fear your love has died; it perhaps is waiting to be transformed into something higher. Awaken the love, the divine presence, which sleeps in each man, each woman. Know each other in that love that never changes, which is not like a cloud in the sky, gone by afternoon.”

-From ‘To The Wonder’
