In the end, love always wins.
Gandhi said: When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it –always.
In the end, love always wins. It can’t fail to. It predates life and death.
That’s why sometimes on their death beds, along with inevitable regrets, people also find peace. They realize that in some ways they have lived wrong, and we might think that would be a sad thing. Yet it’s not, not at all. It’s such a happy thing.
We had life wrong. It was much better than we realized. Finally we see that it was all made of one love. It’s never too late to realize it. And once we realize it, since that love exists only in the now, and is infinite, and always right here, all is utterly forgiven. So it doesn’t matter when we realize it.
In practice, it’s good to realize we have been wrong. It means we have discovered an error that contributed to the making of suffering. And the best thing of all is to discover that we have been wrong about everything — utterly and thoroughly wrong!
Who would have guessed what a blessed thing that could be?
