Love Greater Than Faith (eBook)
‘It’s easier to believe than to love.’
While it is right and healthy to have faith and defend it, trying to impose it on others is a form of fanaticism. In order to avoid such a situation one must never separate faith from love. If it is very difficult to know what love is, we can see its manifestations such as tolerance, gentleness, humility, empathy, kindness. It is only on this condition that we will keep the two pillars of our inner temple of faith and love.

2 - Destructive doubt: unification and bifurcation

7 - Never abandon your faith in good
8 - "Unless you become like children"

10 - Base your trust on vigilance

'When you decide to embrace a religion or a spiritual philosophy and to put its principles into practice in your life, not only will you encounter difficulties with yourself because of the efforts requiered of you, but you will also have difficulties with others who will not necessarily understand how and why you have changed. Well, it is the way you handle these difficulties whiwh reveal the quality, the authenticity of your faith. You must not say, for example, "I'm going to change my life completely, and I don't care what the family thinks. That i not my problem." Oh but it is your problem, because your spiritual life will depend on how you resolve it. Try, as far as possible, not to make others suffer, and of course, you must not abandon them. Remember that love is always greater than faith.'
