Aspects of Love 1

AspectsLove1

Laurence Freeman OSB
2013 Series D

Laurence Freeman is a Benedictine monk of the Olivetan Congregation and Director of The World Community for Christian Meditation. These talks dwell on three aspects of love : love of self, love others, love of God. Meditation is the regular discipline that gradually leads us to love ourselves, others and God. Fr Laurence relates the practice of meditation to love as the very meaning of our creation and our lives. 

In the stillness of meditation, we let go of our fixed ideas, judgement and prejudices, which imprison us in our relationship with ourselves, with others, and with God. In stillness comes a knowledge of the Spirit which enables us to experience life free from all conceptual reference levels of reality.
