Love

My new friend Bill quotes Krishnamurti on his blog, and this line in particular struck my fancy:

"What brings order in the world is to love and let love do what it will."

this post synchronizes with nonbeings post at Sum ergo sum! ;)
I found this:

"Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he loves him. By his love he is enabled to see the essential traits and features in the beloved person; and even more, he sees that which is potential in him, which is not yet actualized but yet ought to be actualized. Furthermore, by his love, the loving person enables the beloved person to actualize these potentialities. By making him aware of what he can be and of what he should become, he makes these potentialities come true".

Nobody, so beautifully powerful! Only through love can we SEE.

Love sometimes dramatizes. I am not against the other philosophies. But sometimes we will tend to be melodramatic with Love.

Sometimes that amount of melodramatism is required to stay human.

Even with my theory I like people. Even sometimes tend to fall in love and I do have compassion for my fellow people.

So the concept is true everywhich way.

Love is a very complicated thing.
It makes people suspicious.

Rob,
Thanks! I was going to say that.
Thought Stacey was trying to ban me.

kathy said...

yeah i was wondering the same thing. my comments/thoughts are not going through.

I guess Stacey doesn't want comments yet. She wants to think out the answers to your comments
first. Or she doesn't want contradictions or oppositions.

Thanks for posting the quote, Nobody. It's wonderful!

Hi Vino,

I do see where love can become an attachment. Even love can cause suffering.

Sophia said...

Anonymous,

Why do you think love makes people suspicious?

Sophia said...

Castor,

I would never try to ban you.

Hi Pollux,

Your initial assumption was correct. I just wanted to think through some things.
