To Love

To Love

To love is to sigh at another’s sorrow, to rejoice at another’s good fortune.

To love is the deepest of all pleasures.

Love Is Out Of This World Our world runs on egoism - to fill ourselves with pleasure.

To attain the G_d's world we need to accept the opposite - how to get pleasure from fulfilling others.
This happens when we feel the other as an integral part of myself - in fact me, other people and all of nature form one integrated system similar to a healthy body.

The crises in our egoistic world will force us to recognize our sick state. Then with our participation the Light will form the perfect LOVE between us.
Then we will see the greatest pleasure comes from mutual love and care between us. Reply

love 7 billion people on the planet. 7 billion definitions of love. This definition works as well as any.

The definition of love is so elusive. I like The Beatles - " all there is is love Love, love is all there is ". I also like the Keats poem, " A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever " if you interpret beauty as truth and truth as beauty as his poem states, and then equate both of those to love. thus love is a joy forever, and it doesn't get much better than that. But that's just 2 out of 7 billion. Okay third and last one, i promise, Beethoven's " Ode to Joy " where joy is love.

Note, i said i like them. I still haven't figured mine out. There is so much to love. I mean that both ways. So much in life to love. So much encompassed by the subject of love.

It's glowing just to think about it. Thanks for presenting the thought. Reply

To Love To love, how great it feels to be loved. How great it is to be the giver of love, to make someone smile. How much more to go the extra inch and do something in the name of love, for the sake of love and to do it for all the ones in the kingdom to bring peace and fullfillment, unity and wholeness. Reply
