  • Radical love is the concept of practicing true, deep, empathetic love towards oneself and others.
  • It is a radical concept in today's society because we are so divided.

Applying Empathy to Others

  • When we see someone doing a bad thing, our initial gut instinct is to label them as bad, evil, wrong, or a monster.
  • However, there's still a five-year-old child in them that came into this world with nothing but optimism, potential, openness, and love.
  • The way that the world ultimately misformed and misfigured them in their heart, mind, and psyche is what we have to be paying more attention to.
  • We have to apply empathy to this person, not to excuse the evil act, but to try to apply love to those who are doing the evil act because only then can we redeem those people.
  • Christ was really trying to get to the heart of it by saying that there's none righteous, not one.

Recognizing Our Own Shortcomings

  • None of us can actually stand above everyone else and cast the stones because we're all falling short of treating each other as the divine miracle that we are.
  • People who don't believe in a spiritual plane or God can still recognize that they're a miracle because we are a mathematical improbability.
  • As human beings, we've been searching the universe ever since we had the capability, trying to find life anywhere else, and we can't find it.
  • Even if there is other life in the universe, we're still a miracle.
  • We have to recognize our own shortcomings and forgive ourselves.
