Human Love is Not Ours Yet It Can Be.

True Human Love.

True human love is not a feeling. Just set that aside in your brain and heart. Human Love is a potential that requires energy to put into motion. Love is not about anything other than ones’ self. Love is truly an inside job. True love comes from so far within that the outside world cannot influence it at all. Love is a state of being. This love is not capable of wrong. While this love is within us it is not of us. True Human Love is energy and matter that is too powerful for our senses to grasp.

At this point the good reader is leaving the page. At this point some are going to the bottom of the page to leave a nasty comment on weirdoes and such. But for those of you intrigued you shall leave this article with a higher consciousness. For those searching you shall be lead into a revealing path. And for those of you who have experienced this Love you will see a human attempt to put an inhuman notion into words.

True human love is not human at all, and yet it is only possible by humans. True human love will convince the finder of that love that love is proof positive that our flesh is not the total of our existence. For this reason some will reject love as the properties of love are much more akin to a god than some would like to admit is possible. True Human Love is so named because it can be owned by a human though it is not part of the human. It is not Human Love because it is of a human but rather because it belongs to humans.

Let us examine our love.

Society take a look, take a hard look at love.

What of this notion of love?

Do you feel that your love?

Take a different view for a moment, please.

A metaphor or a reality

There is no greater love than laying down one’s life for another”. Many see this concept literally in the sense of letting one’s body die so that another body may live. And that is truth. But alas, there is so much more to it than that. Consider a state of being that makes our lives less than the most important part of our existence. A state where our lives are already laid down in acceptance of a higher level of being human. Presume a place where service to others would be better nourishment than our own intake of food. Consider an energy that receives energy by giving away energy. The action of radiating out energy actually increases the energy.

Impossible you say. Well no it is not. Consider a matter so dense that when it releases a part of itself, the gravitational and magnetic draw of the matter creates a scenario where the rush to fill the void left by that released portion creates more energy than the release used. Or perhaps just consider the sun. And all the planets that rotate around it. And all the “stuff” that is drawn to it.

Now use Love as the matter energy. Now you get a small grasp of how intense Love is. It is so intense that we cannot really understand it. And that would seem it is as it should be.

The way we look at ourselves and love

Words we use for ordinary love.

We say, “He loves her” and we say “he loves life” and we say “he is a loving father” and we say that “I love you”. We even say things like “he will love you no matter what” and “I love chocolate”. These are good things to say and reflect our normal understandable and oft taken for granted love of man. We do in this sense all love each other in various degrees. In this sense we find limitations.

Take the command given to many: Love thine enemy. That is very difficult to do in the sense of ordinary love. Just think, there is your daughter and next to her is an ax murderer, and you must love them both the same? Well in fact we can train “ourselves” to do that.

But what if we just were love. In other words our love just was. Or to say it another way, that the Love we have/had is not our love but love. We own it, but it is not of us.

Now it would be easy to love the murderer and your daughter just the same. For that love would have no notion of the difference in relationships between the love and the world.

So we can say, that the car is Eric’s or it is Eric’s car. Now we must consider to say that the love is Eric’s or it is Eric’s love. And just so it is not Eric who is loving it is his love that is loving. Eric cannot carry four passengers down the road but his car can. Eric cannot love the murderer but his love can.

Now if we view True Human Love in this sense then we can begin to process how we can achieve ownership of this kind of love which is not human but belongs to humans.

Just think about the concept of this book. Can Love heal all by itself?

Please own your gift of Love.

The hand is not human.

Another way to describe this love is the hand. Your hand is part of you. It is “part of the human that is you”. Cut the hand off and look both ways. The hand by itself is not human. And the human without the hand is no less human. Yet the hand is part of the human and humans have hands. So is it with love. Humans without love are no less human. The hand with out the human is just so much meat, skin and bones. The hand is your hand and a part of you. You can own it. You can also own Love.

So there our “lover” is, loving.

You see how we speak of it as though it is the person who loves. And that is normal love. But just so it is the hand that is writing this article and not the mind? The hand writes as the person loves.

True Human Love is not the hand. The hand is part of the human. True love is owned by the human but not part of the human. So now it is for us to conclude.

If love is it’s own entity that we can own then love can be perfect. If love is part of us and we are flawed then so is our love. Love is not bound by human weakness. Love is not tarnished by the past or the present and certainly not the future like we humans are likely to be.

So now with all that mental gymnastics behind us we can easily see that when we say, “He just loves” that it has nothing to do with what he loves, he just loves. Love is not about you or me. We do not walk around changing love, but love seems to cruise around changing us.

Try this now that we are wrapping up. Make a simple hard definitive statement of your character traits. Now make one for pure love. Which one will remain constant and which one will change? Therefor which one is more real, you or love. Tomorrow you will be different, love will be solid and not change.

Try this on for size today. Let Go and Let Love.

First get out there and love life.

This guy sure was loving being above those cliffs at a midway dry camp.

      I know in my mind , in my spirit, and in my heart dwells a true sensitivity zone that I relate to the term Love, I can sense it when my mind is stimulated on certain moments of occurrence I enjoy, certain people I come in contact with like family members and close friends, and when I taste, hear, or see things I wish to sense on that much higher level of loving ones inward to outer nature.

      This to me I stated up above is the true sources of love, and for me its always alternating depending on the sway of my environment even, but yeah the true potentials remain constant in terms what ideal love truly is. I must agree with you on that Eric.

      Powerful thoughts bro, more of a philosophers style of writing if anything, and it was beautiful to think up how you wrote it, and awesome to read for me. Thanks for sharing this beauty of a hub.

      CloudExplorer I am moved by the depth of your comment. Thank you. I hear you on the notion of it being almost a place that occurs. And we all know places do not occur ;-)
