Somehow I'm Always Held, by Jeff Foster

 It takes courage in an often harsh world to live life with the openness described here, yet it is that same openness that gives one contact with the source of love that holds all of life. When I was 14 and my mother died, I thought I too would die from a broken heart but in time with contact in my heart to the source of life and love my heart expanded from this loss and I saw life as it truly was and became compassionate and appreciative of the gifts in every day. instead of closing up in pain from this loss, I discovered that the breaking had opened me up to more of life. Whatever Name you give to this embrace of love, it is there to strengthen us. Be brave, be open hearted and ready to receive the love and lessons that life brings to you.

Loving Your Enemy, by Brother David Steindl-Rast

We think we know what love is, but not until we encounter hate in another do we really know what love is. This is love...to give even when we are being hated for the love we have for all--even our enemies. To know that we really aren't separate beings. No, it isn't easy.  It is painful to die to our illusions of separateness and superiority.  But with courage and community, we can live and pray our way into learning this new way of being in the world.
