Thought-provoking and enlightening, God: The Active Principle of Love examines the "dual componency" of the metaphysical and the physical that encompasses human existence. Addressing the traditional teachings of a variety of world religions, M. J. Azhikannickal deconstructs the conventional understanding of "God" and "spirituality" and presents a refreshing view of our relationship with the Divine.Human spirituality is a Theo-centric metaphysical ideation attained by disciplined physical instrumentation. Humans have a built-in free will through which they choose to "tilt" to the positive or the negative. Their choices impact society in general, because as individual entities, they are still intricately connected in the human aggregate. Tendencies to the negative have led to the degeneration and disintegration of all society, but an awareness of the Divine within us and a move to more positive choices will usher in a new era and a new civilization, where every human being, born and unborn, matters.Although philosophical in nature, the book also touches on the practical implications of God as the active principle of love, including justice, relationships, sexuality, and charity. Readers will be challenged to expand their understanding of reality and align their actions with their understanding of divine love.
