You put the finger right on the main possible problem with "Love". Love is the most divine thing but it has to start from the heart, or the soul, not from the brain or the intellect. So the will can transform love, even genuine love, into fake love, and that's the poison I talked about. Some "religious" believe that we can order love, our own or the one we can get from other, but I don't think that this can work. We can love only what is lovable, and that is most of time relative to earthly condition.teeko wrote:So, Love under Will?Salvia acknowledges, for swim, that hell is paved with the good intentions.
Love is nice, but it can also be a poison, when misused.
May be, in fine, God's love *can* be unconditional, but that would be a God's secret, if only because you need to make yourself lovable before even trying to love someone else, even God. So, no, the will can't help, or certainly not through the intellect.
Love has to be spontaneous and originating from genuine feeling. Like many "religious message", they can be true in principle, but leads to the contrary when expressed or imposed in some normative way.
It is also better to avoid loving (and especially to assert so) people who disrespect you, as this will diminishes the love, and the respect, that you can have for yourself, even your higher self, which is the basic ingredient for the genuine love of the others.
It is a bit paradoxical, but universal love is only possible as long as we don't make it into a goal. To love someone is to love his/her selfishness---to love everyone, is like giving money to everyone, it leads to a money with no value at all, unless it arises from having solved all practical problems, but on earth that is not a possibility. I think.
