Practical Mysticism - CHAPTER VI - LOVE AND WILL

l.craddock's picture
"Only the real, say the mystics, can know Reality, for “we behold that which we are,” the universe which we see is conditioned by the character of the mind that sees it: and this realness—since that which you seek is no mere glimpse of Eternal Life, but complete possession of it—must apply to every aspect of your being, the rich totality of character, all the “forces of the soul,” not to some thin and isolated “spiritual sense” alone."

What is Love

Love that can be defined is not love, it is attachment.

Some examples:
I love you because....
If you loved me you would.....
I would feel loved if someone would.....

As God can not be circumscribed, neither can love.
Paul said it like this "He who knows love knows God, for God is love."

Love is unconditional, all else has conditions no matter how pleasant it is.

The nice thing is we can experience both at the same time as humans.

Love is governed by its own intrinsic nature of non-governance. Once again a paradox, like most spiritual truths.
