With an all-embracing love

"Love all God's creation, the whole 
and every grain of sand in it.  
Love every leaf, every ray of God's light.  
Love the animals, love the plants, 
love everything.  

If you love everything, you will perceive 
the divine mystery in things.  

Once you perceive it, you will begin 
to understand it better every day, 
and you will come at last 
to love the whole world 
with an all-embracing love."

-- Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
