Love Trumps All

via Daily Prompt: Replacement

Oh blessed heart,
have you forgotten
the value of love?
Do you not remember
what the great teachers
have said:
“Give up your wealth
and follow me…
If you have faith
that can move mountains,
but have not love,
you are nothing…
There is no other.
You are the other”?
In your greed and despair,
you have lost your way.
Yes. The mind is powerful.
What you will
can come to light.
A love-filled heart
keeps the mind in balance.
But, a heart without love
only seeks to destroy
in the name of will.
Materialism is no replacement
for an attuned heart beat.
For, the empty hole
you seek to fill
will always remain void.

    It is a sad that so many people don’t understand that money and things don’t buy happiness. Money and things only by more money and things, while it is humanity that brings us real joy.
