Hi Judi and All,
I have an interpretation which is strange.
To Love is to give something to someone the way you'd expected to
have received, or to do unto others as others would have done unto
Jesus said to Love God, and to love thy neighbor as thyself.
What are the ways to perform the above feats seems to be a big
confusion for many. What can you give to GOD? There seems to be only
one thing that God had given to you, but out of Love will not take
back---FREE WILL-- unless for oneness with God you want to surrender
the same back to Him.
Secondly what is the best gift for your neighbor?Wine? Women? or
Wealth? Material gifts will make your neighbor dependent on you. So
the only thing that should be given to your neighbors is to show him
how to Love God so that he too can be one with God.
Jesus out of Love for man, wanted all to become one with God, and
thus showed us the way of Love, by becoming one with God Himself.
Howzzat? This is from my Channelling experiences so I welcome
comments on the same.

> Jesus put the icing on the cake by directing us to love our
neighbor as ourselves, which is about all we have left to do when we
are everything. These are straightforward operating instructions.
You are everything, so love your neighbor, who, by the way, happens
to be yourself, anyway.
> But it is far too simple to think of it that way, so we had to
create thousands of books to explain what these visionairies were
saying. Now there are various schools of thought, churches, sects,
priests, teachers, and systems we can choose from. It is truly
confusing and we are relieved to be confused. Otherwise we would
have had to live the simplicity of love.
> We are afraid to step out of our fear, and to love. In the
recognition of the human condition in all of us, that we're all
alike, we find that compassion arises. We are them. We are the human
condition. And knowing this, unavoidably we find compassion,
connection, we fall in love.
> We fall in love with ourselves, with each other, with the human
condition. Love, in the end, doesn't come from being loving. It
comes from being human. It comes from our failure to love and from
our fear of love. The mythic Jesus, after all, was incarnate as a
human being. He had all the passions of a human and all the
failures. In between some fairly impressive miracles, he perceived
that the other is ourself.
> That's the miracle.
> The other is ourself, because, in fact, there is no self to be
other, and no other to be other.
