THE LAW OF LOVE
98

Why can we not see that if the sum-total of the world's activities was destructive, it would have come to an end long ago. Love, otherwise Ahimsa, sustains this planet of ours.

    This much must be admitted. The precious grace of life has to be strenuously cultivated, naturally so because it is uplifting. Descent is easy, not so ascent. A large majority of us, being undisciplined, our daily experience is that of fighting and swearing at one another on the slightest pretext.

    This, the richest grace of Ahimsa, will descend easily upon the owner of hard discipline.

Harijan : Dec. 14, 1947.
