Now you've got me thinking, does love expand my consciousness, or does crisis? I've always thought it was crisis. But that love enabled me to survive crisis, and the often painful expansion of consciousness! Oh, my- :)
Brenda, I think you got it. Without the love, there would just be scarring and that's not expansion of intelligence.
Love dissolves barriers like sunshine on the morning mist. Intelligence is therefore not limited and constrained by fear where love is present.
An owl feather and comments...all expanding my intelligence!Thank you...alan
Not entirely sure love is best categorized as an emotion, but I'm sure it expands intelligence.
Yes. I think we are seeing what hatred and fear accomplishes. Wouldn't it be nice to really try love?
Dale, how would you categorize it best?
Mary, so lovely to see you here and hear your clear voice. It dissolves barriers indeed.Alan, thanks for your comment — as always!RA, oh, I'm with you!
A practice? An intention? A perception? (Hmm, no, I don't really like any of those all that well, either :-> Never mind.)
Dale, to me it is also like a flame. Or then again, like soil, or water. Or air. An element? I know that's not where you were going, but it strikes me that perhaps any label is not necessary, only the understanding that love is.
Uh, what I'm trying to say is that I think it defies accurate categorization.
Yes it does defy being stuck in a box. It certainly is the measure of real intelligence.
That's a new thought...
reminds me of my favorite bumper sticker..."i have found no greater wisdom than kindness"
I think Love -- the Big "L" Love in contrast to the "small self" love -- is a solvent.It dissolves boundary, separation, self-identification, reason, other emotion, space, time...you name it, it dissolves it.Into what?I suppose into the most essential undescribable One.
Terrific quote!(super title given this wisdom)
