How to love

In the past, I have not really understood how, exactly, it is possible to “love God”.

In simple terms.

How can you “love” some thing that is — by popular assent — beyond the reach of our five senses? Is infinite, eternal, ineffable, and unknowable? How can you truly love some thing, some One, that you do not “know”, cannot see, or touch?

Now, I believe that I do understand this.

From first understanding exactly what “God” is.

And, what “True Love” is.

True Love is God.

God is True Love.

Ok, so that’s fine, as far as it goes.

In a circle.

But how exactly do you “love” Love?

How does that help us understand how to manifest True Love? Whether to God, or, to our neighbour?

What, exactly, does God / True Love actually do?

Yield.

a. To give up, as in defeat; surrender or submit.
b. To give way to pressure or force: The door yielded to a gentle push.

To love God, is to yield.

To give up.

To give way.

To love some one in this world — to manifest the True Love that is God to them — means to yield to them.

To give up.

To give way.

Like the ocean. Giving way, yield-ing, to the movement of a wave.

It is that simple.

And that difficult.

Because Self does not like to yield.

Self is a force opposite to Love.

Self resists giving in.

It is clear then, why “Self” must “die”.

So that True Love can be seen.
