                                              Love people even in their sin,

                                     for that is the semblance of Divine Love

                                            and is the highest love on earth.

                                                Love all of God's creation,

                                      the whole and every grain of sand of it.

                                                       Love every leaf,

                                                every ray of God's light.

                                                    Love the animals,

                                                      love the plants,

                                                     love everything.

                                               If you love everything,

                               you will perceive the divine mystery in things.

                                                Once you perceive it,

                            you will begin to comprehend it better every day.

                                            And you will come at last

                                   to love the whole world with an

                                               all-embracing love.

                                                                                 Fyodor Dostoyevsky
