Based on a preacher i know...

“Agape’s teachings embrace a Reality the world’s scriptures and sacred texts endeavor to describe, even as they acknowledge the impossibility of such a task. Some call it God, Great Spirit, Hashem, or Allah, while others simply prefer to leave it nameless. Agape teaches that this Spirit is the Source of our life, that we are made in its image and likeness, which makes us co-creative participants in the three-dimensional world in which we live”.


preaching the power of goodness


motivation, inspiration, and enthusiasm
life is good, oh yes it is
filled of beauty and wonder
hearts rejoice when it is focused on
what is wonderfilled


and what feels right
 
allowing the oneness
that is all things
knowing we are infused with light
knowing we are born with divine right
and within each body, each person, each soul
is the choice to the greater whole
 
we are meant to be holy and not the plague
we are meant to live within golden light
and whatever went sour along the path
were only mind choices of the ego’s wrath
its is not god that allows us suffer
it is ourself, our thoughts, our fear of death
 
we live forever, tho we forget
and the body fades but the minds intact
we don’t escape, we can only evolve
it is up to us to resolve ourselves
 


we have done things in the world
we gained selfish in the name of greed
all for the self and not for the other
forgetting all is connected
in one way or another
 
now be grateful for every blessing and lesson
we have learned pain and sorrow by various degrees
we are awakening now to higher decree
aware how we treat the land, the animals, and other peoples
remember who you are
a holy holy seed
select each personal choice 
 
after all it is your life

Agape brought forth in Christian theology, and one of the four loves sometimes know as sacrificial love, Philia - a more of friendship and virtuous love, Eros - passionate and desirous longing love, Storge one we feel for our children. All this love courses our life to some degree. It is the season it is the time yes all of us are awakening, all of us consciously are remembering who we are, and it is up to us to choose the right path only known to us following our heart and soul. All that which was given to all of us. Honor it, worship it, protect mother earth and put away material things for they have no worth.

:) got a little carried away.

Beautiful, thank you

Love and Light

This is a wonderful Awakening of which you speak and articulate so specifically and beautifully for us here, Debbie. Agape is Fellowship, pure and simple. Fellowship is deep communion at every possible level, irrespective of our cultures, traditions, beliefs, personalities or whatever that may seek to divide. In essence it is self-sacrificing love. That which esteems others higher than self. THAT is the way of personal and corporate aggrandissement on a spiritual level. Yes, it is our life, but one that can only truly know peace when lived in fellowship with others. And the choice is ours. Thank you for this wonderful exegesis. Kate xx

Agape is a form of love on a spiritual plane and it fuels God's universe. Without it we could not co-exist as human beings here on this earth. Your creation is thoughtful and focused.

I always equated agape with spiritual love, which is not easy to achieve. Your rendition on the power of goodness is right on the spot.
