“The beauty of divine love, once fully admitted to the human heart, forever destroys the charm of sin and the power of evil.” [UB, 188:5.3]
Thought Adjuster: “The innate tenderness of the human heart speaks volumes for its divinely-ordained purpose of being both a recipient and a conduit for love. As above, so below. If you examine the intricacies of your cardio-circulatory system, there should be no doubt in your mind that the heart’s function is not to hoard blood but to freely circulate it through the intricate network of arteries and tiny vessels that crisscross the physical body.
Love cannot be held captive in the human heart. Doing so denatures it and downgrades it from its sublime unconditionality to a self-centered conditionality—thus impeding its cosmic irrigation.
“Jesus, by the power of his personal love for men, could break the hold of sin and evil. He thereby set men free to choose better ways of living. » [UB, 188:5.3] How could it be so?
Sin and evil are cancer-like parasites that embed themselves in the walls of the emotional heart, inflicting great damage to its ‘love-ability.’ They are self-centered sociopaths who relish in the misfortunes they inflict on others. Sometimes, they are ignorant—an attenuating circumstance often pleaded by Jesus, whose wide-open heart prompted him to act as their public defendant in the hope of softening their hardened emotional arteries.
Jesus succeeded in many such divine interventions by finding a crack through which he could breathe love in these anorexic souls. The universal attraction of love is the divine weapon of predilection. It beats hands down the repulsive emanations of sin and evil, leading their hosts to turn their lives around to sail under the universally acknowledged protection of the divine flag—no longer under the despicable black ensign bearing a skull-and-crossbones symbol, flown on the vessels of the ruthless pirates of the seven seas.”
