The answer to any open question.
The prime directive and origin of existence.
Extended and adapted from Gary Chapman's 1995 book
What are the love languages for beings who have detached value from material existence and the judgments that arise within in?
via Thich Nhat Hanh
"The roots of a lasting relationship are mindfulness, deep listening and loving speech, and a strong community to support you." —Thich Nhat Hanh, How to Love
Love, like satchitananda, seems to be absolute. Everything else is relative. When we consider non-being, love appears relative. Being is to non-being as love is to fear. But as we cannot conceptualize or model non-being. We often view love as absolute as being. The tao contains non-being as well, and as such:
Reality is a relational matrix of innumerable quanta, infinitesimal reality cells that can be in this state or that state, a 1-one or a 0-zero, yin or yang.
Existence itself though is dimensionless, timeless, featureless: pure potential with unconditional love for itself, at once everything and no-thing, everywhere and nowhere.
It is this limitless love, without beginning or end, origin or resolution, that brings us to be. #where-babies-come-from
cnxns wants to know and enjoy itself, so it fashions itself a manifold of facets, each with a lens of experience to focus and the will to evolve and resolve ignorance.
We tend to experience this will to resolve ignorance as curiosity. All life is curious, you will notice, unless deterred by fear, pain, and other threats of non-being.
You, an awareness, are one of these facets.
Love is the reason you are #NowHere.
Love is one of two possible answers to a chain of "Why?"
Why are you here reading this? If you did not answer with either Love or Fear, ask why again.
Why do you want to know more about how we got here and what to do about it? Love or Fear
Keep asking why. I think you will find that either love or fear is the foundational motivation for anything you attend or intend, and thus for every action you take and choice you make. #Sting
Affinity draws together, converts energy from potential to movement, keeps us spinning and dancing, and pulls us into radiant union to warm our bones and shower us with the light of love.
Affinity, and thus gravity, grows stronger as we grow closer, as union becomes more likely.
Love is not a choice.
It is the force of absolute truth. It is felt.
You cannot change what or whom you love, but you can pay attention and set intentions with the love you feel, or choose to ignore it and allow instead for fear to steer you.
Love will guide you to create, to accept, to collude and commune, to collaborate and conspire.
Fear on the contrary will help you rise against.
With fear you can conquer and rule, you can take ownership rather than accepting responsibility, you can murder the track, or kill it on stage.
Fear will help you act considerately, where you take the sides of others to predict their feelings while remaining separate from them. Considering requires no compassion, and is employed to avoid pain, not to generate and share joy. gurdjieff
You will really stand out when you set yourself apart out of deeply rooted fear.
You will be fearsome, and less loved, for fear begets fear as love breeds love, and each cancels the other as any pair of mutually-defining-opposites.
