“You are destined to live a narrow and mean life if you learn to love only those who love you. Human love may indeed be reciprocal, but divine love is outgoing in all its satisfaction seeking.” [UB 156:5]
Thought Adjuster: “Just as there is physical maturity, there is an emotional one—the maturing of the heart. You should look at yourself from this perspective because it is the route you have to take, leading you from your humanity to your divinity.
“Are you in for the eternal and thrilling pursuit of Godlikeness? It has everything to do with the development of your ability to love. From the above statement, you can figure out at which stage you are in the maturation of your heart.
“If your love is self-seeking, it is not Love. If you base your decisions on the ‘what-is-there-in-it-for-me’ parameter, it is not Love. If you only express love those who love you, it is not Love, as authentic Love initiates, never idling in a standby mode.
“Divine love is outgoing in all its satisfaction seeking… it cannot be self-contained; it must be unselfishly bestowed.” It is the reason why Jesus could not help himself from performing loving ‘miracles.’ His love had matured to its godlike quality, and He could not withstand the altruistic urges from His wide-open heart.
“Do not be discouraged by your current inability to love with such a degree of perfection. What matters is that you strive to expand your ‘love-ability’ daily, moment by moment, as you will never lack opportunities to do so. If you learn to love one more person a day, you will succeed.”
