Grace as the most basic concept and personal experience is the place to start…and where understanding inevitably ends.
Grace/graciousness being love in action is the fulfillment of any law and the only personal decision that truly frees humanity.
Mankind can be both blessed and cursed by its intellect. High order concepts like honor, duty, loyalty and obedience if coupled with the highest ethical concept of grace/graciousness can guide and redeem mankind. Animals such as dogs know these things instinctively and follow them within their mental capabilities which is one of the things that makes them so admirable and lovable.
