Love Is the Found Link

Love is the supreme definition of Divinity. It is the missing link that creatures seek in the immensity of scientific study, which, in order to make faster progress in the social sphere, has to join with non-fanatical Faith to find this link. For many years now, I have stated that Science (brain, mind) enlightened by Love (Religion, the fraternal heart) elevates human beings to conquer Truth!


And what else is Love?

Love is the greatest champion of the most difficult battles. It overcomes all suffering. Love is God, and therefore it enhances its comforting actions when the unprotected or our loved ones need help.

Love never asks for itself.

Love offers the support the helpless beg for.

Love discreetly heeds even those appeals that are not overtly expressed.

Love never deserts, because it always helps. It never causes destruction. It brings Peace.

Love never falls ill. It renews itself to heal the sick in body and/or in Soul. It causes no hunger; on the contrary, it provides nourishment.

Love instructs and sets free, because it re-educates and spiritualizes.

Rabindranath Tagore

Love does not constrain, because it trusts. For this reason, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), the famous Hindu bard and philosopher, and a friend of Gandhi (1869-1948), wrote:

“Oh God! Your Love sets free, while human love imprisons.”

Love is everything; it is the delight of our existence, since it drives away fear.

When Love is truly itself, it always triumphs, since it never coerces anything or anyone. In the end, Love rules, because Love is God, but also Justice.

Love is the Found Link.1

1 The Found Link — Here the author presents an antithesis to the “missing link,” an expression used in 1851 by Charles Lyell (1797-1875), the mentor of Charles Darwin (1809-1882). Better known as the “transitional fossil” in paleontology, it refers to the organism that has the characteristics of both its evolutionary descendants and its predecessors preserved in the fossil record. In the investigation of the evolutionary history of human beings, the search is for the “transitional fossil” between ape and man. Some hominid fossils have been studied, the most famous being Lucy, a specimen of the Australopithecus afarensis species. The search continues, and other hominids have been discovered since Lucy, but it is still not certain that they are the “missing link” of this phylogenetic tree to which we belong.
