What we love when we love

Artists: Giovanni and Francesco Cagnola

During Easter Week, this time of resurrection joy, we might well ask ourselves what is the nature of the life that is resurrected. Here's something I found today over on the Gratefulness website. You can read the rest of this particular piece right here if you like.

Life is not the opposite of death. Birth is the opposite of death. Both birth and death are part of life. When we are born, we come from the One who is Life. And when we die, we go back to the One who is Life, because we are life from this Life. It is this live core – which some traditions have called “soul” – that we love when we love another. Regardless of what we call it, it is not subject to death.
