True Statements About Love

Some statements about love which I think are true:
(Not necessarily in order of importance)

  • Love is not a feeling, but love has feelings.
    • A person who loves often feels the feelings of the person he or she loves, although they might not be recognizable as such.
  • You cannot love if you reject the love of others.
    • You cannot love yourself or others if you reject the love of others or yourself.
  • You cannot love other people if you do not love God.
    • You cannot love God if you don’t think He loves you.
    • You cannot love others if God doesn’t love you.
  • Love says, it’s good that you exist.
    • Love says, it’s good that I exist.
  • Love comes from God.
  • God is love.
  • God loves you.
  • A person who loves should believe there is love in the heart of the loved one.
  • We cannot live without love.
    • We want and need to be loved.
    • We want to be loved, in particular, by the people we love.
  • We cannot make anyone (or everyone) love us.
  • Love is a commandment of God.
  • When someone loves us we tend to feel ashamed.
    • When we are ashamed we often do things that don’t look like love.
  • Love is often hidden under other things like self-righteousness and fear. When we clear away those things the love remains and appears.
  • Love moves toward people. [Paul Miller]
    • Love doesn’t leave people alone. [Miller]

Here is something else I have been thinking about that is worth exploring:
Love is like light. As per theories of relativity and quantum mechanics, it has properties of a wave and a particle.
