Read a little more kindly, openly

When I read the saints of the Christian church from centuries before, I am put off by the self-flagellation that seems usual among people who felt that making themselves little somehow made G*d greater. As if G*d needed the help!

Yet they can be read a little more kindly and openly: Be wary of following only your own single desires; test them for universal love, beauty, truth, goodness. Simply feeding your desire for beer or food or sex is not the end; there is more to life. See that you keep your eyes there, for in this way we lift all, we love all, and love is the fulfilling of life.
