Acting On Love

There were rules in the monastery, but the Master always warned against the tyranny of the law.
"Obedience keeps the rules," he would say.
"Love knows when to break them." 

Anthony de Mello S.J.

This is a really great song and video, especially the man dancing towards the end. Enjoy 

The heart of love turns the whole thing round...............the heart of life is good.

Great wisdom. Jesus was the best rule breaker I know, and it was always for love. Healing on the Sabbath...all done for love.

Hi Andie. Yes, I love Anthony de Mello- a master at counter-intuition and when my head is sore from thinking too much I often go to him to ground me ! I often think Jesus must have had some fun with the pharisees but his motives were always pure !!
