Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
Hamilton Wright Mabie
As the season and year ends it doesn’t matter which religion you preach or even none at all. What does matter is the love that you give and treat others in the way that you want to be treated.
Evolution and immigration has blended the world with a number of different religions. Some of us preach Christ while others preach Jewish festival commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire. And others a celebration which honors African heritage in African-American culture. Or maybe you preach something else.
There is no right or wrong answer here and everything is accepted!
What’s beautiful is how each comes together around this time of year. We honor the differences in a way that makes everyone feel “in” and accepted.
This is a time of year also when many of us experience hardships for whatever reason.
The conspiracy of love blends us all together as if we are one.
We all have our strengths and weaknesses. We live in different cultures. We were raised up differently.
I talk about my disability a lot because it Is not what defines me but rather completes me. By experiencing new challenges, I learn more about myself and the kindness of the community around me generally.
During this time of year I often experience a lot of people wanting to be kind and help. It not only makes my life easier but it also bonds us in a way that is brought upon us by the conspiracy of love.
How are you affected and involved in and by the conspiracy of love?
