“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” — G.K. Chesterton
Everything you do is backed by a motivation which is in turn underpinned by an inner orientation. That orientation is either rooted in the spirit of love or in the absence of that spirit, the spirit of hatred.
When your inner orientation is to the spirit of love, you could be said to worship love. When you worship love, your motivations are grounded in love and your actions are therefore backed by love.
When your inner orientation is in the absence of the spirit of love, you are invariably afraid of the dark. You fear the unknown and you fear love’s shadow, truth. Your motivations are the product of a mixture of fear and greed and you serve not as a true soldier of love, but as a henchman of hate.
