Metaphysical meaning of love (mbd)
love, divine, compared to personal love.
Meta. Love is a divine attribute; it is an idea in the one Mind. God is love and love is God, or a quality in Being. The difference between divine love and human love is that divine love is broad and unlimited, a universal and harmonizing power. Human love is based on personality and is selfish, lawless, and fickle.
In reality there is only one love; when man expresses divine love in limited ways he makes a separation in consciousness and his expression of love is personal instead of universal.
Divine love will establish one in fearlessness and courage, "For God gave us not a spirit of fearfulness; but of power and love and discipline."
By establishing ourselves in the consciousness of divine love and expressing that love at all times we are helped to fulfill the command, "Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you, bless them that curse you, pray for them that despitefully use you."
The development of divine love has its place in demonstrating supply. When love is established in the consciousness it will draw to us all that we require to make us happy and contented, all that really belongs to us.
We develop love in our heart by asking daily that the infinite love of the Father be poured out upon us; by praying, meditating, and affirming that we are one with and express at all times the perfect love of God.
