THE DREAM, from the book, One Woman’s Choice

The Dream

I had a dream one night. It seemed I was speaking with someone of great importance. Much was said, but I only remembered one thing. It was as if I was given a secret.

I was asked, “What is the opposite of love?”

Of course I responded, “Hate,” because this has always been my interpretation of the two sides.

I was wrong, in a sense. I was informed that the opposite of love is lie. I was perplexed for a moment. When I awoke, I lay in bed and pondered my dream, trying to make more sense of the message. As I lay there, the answers became clear. No matter what you put up against love, it would all be a lie. I thought, Could it really be this simple?

Soon thoughts became clearer in my mind.

• Hate is based on a lie.
• Fear is based on a lie.
• Shame is based on a lie.

Many crimes are based on one of the above. A lie has to be spoken, heard, and believed in order to choose anything other than love.

God is love; God is truth. I choose love.

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, that he who loveth God love his brother also.—1 John 4:20–21
