Hive of Lights to Perfections

Frank and honest endeavoring for the truth, and if possible along the way, a few pence. Whatever comes I hope it's good. Otherwise this could end up being one major waste of time and bandwith, your's and mine.

I enjoy creating. I enjoy wondering why I enjoy creating. I like to think that I like to think, but when it really comes to brass tacks--I try not to sit on them. In other words I'm a fair weather thinker. My experience is that intuition grants us far more value than any self induced knowledge, though I by no means advocate the abondonment of ration or logic. I simply believe that it's not all of which some seem to think it is. At least not in it's current state of accessability to humanity at large. I gladly forsake any semblance of openmindedness or equality in the view of mortals to touch, and remain as close to, that which is truly divine in life.

Conditions in Love? /Love - segment Beta

Inspired by a comment on my initial "Love" post given by katrina

Love is more than just trying to love someone unconditionally. Unconditional love, in its fullness, is only obtainable if there's the assurance that, at some point, the love will produce, and not just once but continually, the fruits of love. If there is no hope for what love is suppose to bring then love cannot endure. The view of love as being stuck to someone or something, despite that thing or entities determination to not reciprocate love, ever, then I would not call it love, rather an addiction. Like someone in a relationship that is, and is set to forever remain, terribly abusive. To remain in that situation is not something that is motivated by love, rather sickness. And I don’t mean love sickness.

This "unconditional" love has its limits tied to the free will of the entities involved. One side may have the perfect attributes and express love fully and without concern for reciprocation, or for adequacy in such, but that cannot continue forever if one side is forever rejecting the stipulations of true love.

I see love as being able to endure wherever there is a desire on the part of both sides. This love can continue on as long as both sides have determination in common, and to whatever magnitude and degree to which love can be expressed by both sides, respective to their capacities.

I guess you're being sort of pessimistic in this entry. My point is that how can it be unconditional if there is a condition that the other party must love you back. What about God's unconditional love for all of mankind despite man's tendency to rebel? Does that mean that his love is not love, but an addiction that will soon extinguish? :) And since man is made in the image and likeness of God, doesn't that mean that we are likewise capable of loving with such intensity?

No. God's love would only be an addiction that would soon extinguish IF he were determined to forever ignore our desires as we make them manifested when and were they remained desires to be unconnected with Him. God's love is open, unconditional, for a limited time. I know it sounds counter intuitive. God WANTS to be able to love His children forever. But if God were to allow our capacity to reject or accept this love offered without respect to the individual to remain for all eternity, if we were to be capable of receiving and rejecting this love forever, and we forever vacilated we would be mocking God and His love. And if we were ever allowed to, or justified in, such mockery then God's love would cease to be love and God would cease to be God.

Your last question is key. Yes we are in the very image and likeness of God. If we accept that, if we do all we need to do to receive His grace and arrive at the same level, with respect to capacity, as God then our capacity to love will verily match the intensity of God's love.
