Rules and regulations....

Does anyone else ever get the feeling that the more dogma there is in religion, the less room there is for love (which doesn't have a great reputation for strict adherence to the rules)?

The same applies to metaphysical questions as well. The more we ponder the esoteric, the more we reduce it, it seems, and the less we focus on love.

And I have to wonder--what's the point if it isn't love?

I'm just happy to see that there are still so many others in the world who care about such things. For a long time, I followed and wrote about politics and there is very little love there, especially on the Internet. I've kind of reached the point where I just can't believe that the same systems that created a world this ugly can actually make it better. Politics and dogma share something, I think--they both require that the rules be delineated quite precisely, which, from what I can tell, leads to a narrowing of both the mind and the heart.

Love to you. =D

Of course! There are many who still share your feelings and who care about the same things you do. :) Love to you too! :D
