Recently in a small city in the mid-South a metaphysician who calls herself SAGE appeared at a local church. She considers herself to be a spiritual healer, intuitive counselor and axiatonal therapist. News releases said she would focus on how to dwell in a state of bliss as "love is all there is and everything else is just an illusion." No, hate is not just an illusion. Remember the holocaust? Remember Sept. 11 and the attack on the World Trade Center? Indifference is not just an illusion. It exists as surely as love exists. Material things are not an illusion. They exist. We use them to express our hatred — or our love. Love may be the strongest thing there is, but it is not the only thing that exists.
