Is love and forgiveness all we really need?

I was reading this really great book. In this amazing book it says love is all we need to get our lives in order. Love for yourself, for other people, love for the world as a whole. Forgiving ourselves for things we've done, forgiving others, and the world. Do you think this wonderful and simple concept will work?

Love - Forgiveness - and a sense of contentment in whatever situation we find ourselves in. A hard concept for the majority but one that brings a certain peace once found and set into motion.

Normally, I would be all fired up to agree with you. Love is everything to me, because God is love. But, even though you forgive everyone involved and love them, some situations just seem to painful to deal with.

when you old that pain in, it turns into doubt, fear, being over weight, being sick. You deal with that pain, and then give it to God girl. The Lord is the cure for everything.

I know what you mean. Even when we fall short of his glory, we can still give that pain to him. Thank you for your response.

I do not know if it is so easy to achieve for everyone. I am sure there are people who managed to achieve that. Mother Teresa is a name that comes to mind. Being creatures of material wants and needs, we tend to be very territorial over our possession and the way we treat people and things. To let everything go and surrender to love and love alone, is TOUGH. Not impossible, but TOUGH!

That is true. But the human mind works in complex ways. Emotions is the one that is holding us back. Till we can over come the emotions that relates it to TOUGH, we are... how should I put it... erm... helpless?

I sure wish that was all we needed to make it through life. It isn't that easy. It is definitely more complicated that that, unfortunately. I wish we could love on love and forgiveness. It would make the world a more happier place for all of us to live in.

it is that simple but we make it hard by thinking it's not enough

I think if every person could think in that way then yes it would work but i think we would struggle to get every1 to think in that way i mean we would share help each other and nobody would be poor it would be fantastic
