Don’t Confuse “Love” With “Love!”

Positive- Ghandi

When the young child asks the question about where babies come from, and the first response, other than the stork story is, “when two people love each other . . . blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!” The child eventually grows up to learn the real story, “when two people have sex . . . blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!” Now as an adult, he or she knows where babies come from . . .  but what about love?

Love refers to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection (“I love that person”) to pleasure (“I loved that meal”). It can refer to an emotion or attraction (“I love my job or career”). It can also be a virtue representing human kindness and compassion (“I love children, animals, the poor”). (Wikipedia)

Love is a power that you can choose to share or not. Love is so powerful that you can choose who or what to love, whether it is good for you or not. Have you ever seen a man who did not love his own actions? Even though they be bad actions, he loves them. This man is a man with the spiritual side of his nature still undeveloped. If he is selfish, the evil is not in his love of self—all love, even self-love, is good. The evil is that he has such a poor, inadequate, misguided love of self and such a lack of love for others and for God. He looks upon himself as only a superior sort of animal, and foolishly pampers his physical wants and needs. 

Know thou that in every age and dispensation all divine ordinances are changed and transformed according to the requirement of the time, except the law of love, which, like a fountain, always flows and is never overtaken by change. ~Bahá’u’lláh
