So much art and literary genius revolves around the theme, e.g. the song itself "love is the answer". Do you believe it makes sense? Or are there extreme situations where it does not apply? Thanks

Agree. I seems to be the key to every riddle.
You make an interesting point there, manatita44, about the energy of Mother's love for the child coming from Creation (e.g. the Universe) itself. Makes me think that if we align ourselves to the Laws of the Universe, then really love is the answer
Quite so, Quirinius.
"Truth is in all, but love is all" - Sri Chinmoy. Love is the very pulse of being. It is what brings the God-men and women back into this world to serve. God is love ...
... the one thing of supreme importance ...
God is Omnipresent; Love is Omnipresent, it follows then that perfection is omnipresent. Otherwise, the saints would have died in vain. They lived, by example, to give us faith and to believe in impossible dreams. Blend without that which is within.
In a way, true love, which is unconditional, calls for us to be perfect, "as the Father is perfect." At least, for us to be working on trying to be unconditionally loving as much as we can. Thanks for your inputs, loveofnight and manatita44.
Thanks, connorj, for qualifying what true love means, to help our fellow hubbers come up with related answers. Singers and songwriters indeed have known the esoteric secret about love for the longest time.
To be able to love oneself, yes. 'self love' is what a lot of us feel, and it is generally associated with selfishness. Perhaps you speak of the importance of loving oneself which ultimately prevents one from going down the destructive path.
Agree. ... Through God's love and wisdom, powered by his providence.
Thanks, edhan. I understand what you mean. Love is usually mistaken for something else, such as when there is intimacy felt in relationships, which often turns into pain in the end.
