Responsible to LOVE…
“with great power there must also come — great responsibility” how often have we heard this powerful quote of tremendous truth that has been somewhat trivialized because it first came to our collective consciousness through the pages of a comic book, but think about it, we all have great power that we wield haphazardly, with wild abandon and callous disregard. And the greatest power we all wield blindly with almost no thought to the immense responsibility it demands is LOVE. We all relish and wallow in LOVE like fatted calves when it suits our desires, but seldom do most shoulder true LOVE’s power with the highest honor and absolute reverence that is its sole/soul requirement. This leaves us feeling no more desire for real LOVE, but for the fakeries of fear that oft tempt us with fleeting but alluring disguises, illusions of control over our shallow, shadow passions that without LOVE over which we have not. So remember always we must, when our ultimate power of LOVE we wield “with great power there must also come — great responsibility”
When we are responsible with our LOVE we serve all life, when we are not, we steal the energy from the lives of those things we say we LOVE, but in fact do not.
Greatest LOVE asks only one thing to last forever; that our responsibility to LOVE be greatest. For LOVE lightly taken is not LOVE at all, but something else, a trick of the flesh easily forsaken.
“It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging our responsibilities.” ~ Josiah Charles Stamp
