The Mysticism of Love

What do you feel when you fall in love? Or do we choose to love?

Is it adoration? Glorifying another. Admiring the depths of their soul in thick and thin.

Is it very strong liking? Enjoying their basic company in the mundane of life. Understanding the good. Accepting the bad. Unconditionally taking them at soul value.

Demystifying love? Affection? True appreciation of your lover’s flame. Showing emotion and not afraid to be vulnerable. Is that love?

Passion? Cherishing the rapture of their spirit. Enchanted by the tenderness they demonstrate on any given day.

Fear? Do we feel invincible in the strength of love and weak when its unsure? Maybe the more confidence we have in love the better performers we are on the stage of life.

Fidelity? Devoted to the friendship you share. Being the one who understands them more than anyone else. When we say “I love you”, is this what we mean? Is it temporary, for a season or eternity? Does true love ever die? Is the energy of love directed somewhere else when the arteries of communication are blocked?

Some of the most powerful things in life can’t be seen but they are felt. Love, adds color to life. It inspires and drives us to heal. It causes us to make decisions so we can be happy. It multiplies in intensity each time we give. The more aware we are the better lovers we can be.

The Mysticism of Love…Hopefully no more misuse of love

  1. Love is not a feeling that can be turned on or off.
    Love is not an emotion that can be cast away.
    Love is not surface adoration.

    Love is a bond that connects within the soul.
    Love is unity
    Love is life

  2. The joys of philosophying…if thinking is an addiction your blog is like crack to me,lol…I feel like whenever I am suffocating under the weight of my experiences your blog is like oxygen because it asks the right questions.

    However, one question that is missing is what role does God play in love ? True love is not a human invention, because the carnal world is finite and real love is eternal. Time and space limit our understanding of eternal principles. God is love so our understanding of love is also limited by how well we know God. We will never know everything about Him, but we can know enough to excute His plan and purpose for our life.

    People mistakenly think that God wants perfection but our purpose is to Love him with all our heart and all our strength. But many don’t know that this is their purpose and make choices contrary to this. However, if you do live with this purpose nothing can come between you and your love for God. To be seperated from God is to be seperated from the very source of your love. And God is a JEALOUS God, He will do everything in His power to keep you, once you have given yourself to Him.

    Also if he has called you to do something and you accept the call no matter how much you love another person if they do not fit into your Divine destiny and your service to God, God will remove them. Like being a musician is a service to God, if someone doesn’t dig this then God doesn’t want them apart of your life. Clifford Brown had this understanding when he told Ms. Larue when you marry me you marry my horn.

    Alot people of faith can’t accept this, especially when it comes to marriage and divorce. Again no matter how much you love and give to a person if they are standing in the way of what God wants you to do He will remove them. I have found people of faith have made marriage an idol. For them marraige is more important than your relationship with God. Your fidelity to marriage can’t over ride your fidelity to Godly principles. Like if you have to cheat to stay in a marriage or choose not to develop certain talents because your spouse doesn’t want you to, you are putting your marriage before God.

  3. Love

    If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

    If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

    If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

    When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

    And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
