Demetrue-Re: Re: Emotions & Truth
- Dear Demetrue, and all,
Thank you, Demetrue, for your concise and, as usual, thoughtful, clear way.
Your words offer the cover of a warm blanket, allowing rest, renewal, and
rejuvenation for the next day (next day of this discussion?--smile). "God's
love is broad enough to include both love and truth." Wonderful tautologies,
and that sounds like just something God would say! (laugh--loving).

I think this is the life principle, the etheric that makes the
difference and bring this "breath" of warmth, renewal, rejuvenation
This is that we have an anthroposophist in the person of Demetrue...
