    The demands of authority may declare that you behead another for the sake of religion.......

    The demands of authority may demand that you behead another for the sake of culture...

    The demands of authority may demand that you cut the wages of your lessers for the sake of the shareholder.........

    The demands of authority may demand that you cut the positions of another for the sake of the bottom line.......

    The demands of authority may demand that you forsake those you love for the greater good..........

    The demands of authority may demand that you forsake those you love for the bottom line......

    When do you refuse the demands of authority for the sake of your own soul...................

    It's when you recognize that your own soul is greater than the demands of authority.

    It's when you that you recognize that your soul is the definition of love.

    And that love has no authority other than itself.

    And that love is all encompassing that no authority, no culture, no religion, no money......

    Could ever dream of capturing that essence in which one soul looks unto others........

    And sees itself.........wholly forgiven and one.

    Really,really good thinking there !
    But I get the feel of self denying,
    yeilding to another's demands.
    It seems to go round and round.
    And then finally, you'll be memory.

    More like it's realizing that no matter what you will recognize love over your betters, the authorities who dictate your life and business, to realize what you really want and love those who really matter.........rather than loving that which provides for you but does not make you happy.

    All of us are so given to authority. For insurance reasons, for job security, for cultural adherence..........but that is not love. None of that is love. It's going along with the flock to ensure misery..........

    Love has no authority........and love is what is closest to our own soul......and it's that moment you would be willing to walk away from security, so called financial security, for love.........
