I have read a thought-provoking blog contemplating on love, which I find philosophical, as do many of the musings on love by other writers in the past, such as Diane Ackerman (who wrote “A natural history of love”) and William Shakespeare (who wrote “If music be the food of love, play on” as spoken by one of his characters in the play “Twelfth Night”).
“Where does love come from anyway? Who or what is dishing it out to the world’s inhabitants and why does that source appear to be so elusive?”
As for the question on the elusive source of love, I think it may remain a mystery (in a sense it is mystical), just like the idea of “Christ in us, the hope of glory” remains “the mystery of Christ”. I would say that love originates from our heart. Our heart is where the love of God is – and to me, the love of God is simply unconditional love from our highest self. Many in the religious circles see God as separate from them, but we have learnt that God is one with us, and therefore, God’s love originates from our highest consciousness.
When people remember they are Love, they will love themselves and others. This may sound simplistic, but that’s how I understand it for now. 🙂 Love is kindness. Love is caring for others. As the saying goes, “all love is self-love.” When people love and accept themselves, they will also love and accept others, whether near or afar.
Love is. We are… Love.
