love: the inability to put yourself before others


love is the mechanism which enables us to maintain motion for forever


love is a self-instilled trait that has to become a part of a persons' nature, and when it is, it only ever grows stronger!


an example of love


a person's skill at table tennis is much better than the person she or he is playing


when a person knows she or he is better at table tennis than the person she or he is playing the player with more skill will get more enjoyment from the game by using her or his superior skills to bring out the best skills in the other person


it's surprising how quickly the game of the less skilled person improves and in no time at all your partner is producing moves that make you stretch

(this example was an awake-time experience as a teenager)


winning easily doesn't give the superior player as much satisfaction as a hard-won win would, whereas a game with players of equal skill, can, theoretically, go on forever


another example of love


a young divorced woman with three young children puts aside her preferences and marries a man she doesn't love to ensure her three children get the best possible chance in life


these mundane examples are the very stuff of the heavenly experience


*


as we advance into the future, the ability to put other people before self will become a natural characteristic


there's plenty of time to practice love and there's no rush


a steady increase, maintained over a five-thousand million year period, will get you started


*


it is acts of love that take us to heaven and it's an act of creative-love that brings us back to earth

analogy


conception-pregnancy-birth


both conception and  pregnancy are enacted in Heaven... the big bang is birth
