The mineral realm exist to give substance and structure to our planet. It moves from stone to volcanic fire to heat and light through the process of life. Nothing is lost in the process, only transformation. This is an act of love and of life.
When we cut down a tree and burn it it’s life is expended and shared through its flame and heat; when we eat a live plant it’s life energy is transformed into our body’s sustenance; when we give love to someone with kind words, acts of loving kindness, or generous offerings our life and all life is transformed and our love is transmitted to others and stored to be redistributed to others and by others through kind words, acts of loving kindness, and generous offerings of love; love is eternal as life.
Love is social, its sharing is essential for its existence and propagation, it only exists for others and can never be demanded but must be given freely and received humbly to bear fruit and be witness of God’s existence in all that exists. Blessings.
