Following the rules? It may be difficult to decide when to follow a more accepted approach in our actions and when to break out into something new. We may think there are too many rules, too many laws in our modern society, but there is only one law that matters in the long run. That law is the law of love. A loving God is trying to express through us. The expression of love is proper conduct. Sometimes extending love seems like work, but it is really quite easy following a surrender. Let us relax into proper service, doing the right thing for the right reason. Calm and collected, knowing we are cared for, we conduct ourselves in a manner that shines as an inspiring example. We perform, not as actors, but as representatives of the divine. There is no sense of “toeing the line” to gain the approval of others, we comport ourselves in an exemplary manner almost effortlessly because we are in sync with Creation.
