Aspects of Love 2

AspectsLove2

Laurence Freeman OSB
2014 Series A

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. 

Meditation teaches us that we can only love ourselves if we can accept ourselves. Self-acceptance leads to self-transcendence. We can also learn to love those close to us by withdrawing our positive projections or fantasies of them. We learn to love our enemies by withdrawing our negative projections of them.
