Love and Strife
1 All things interact.
2 If love unifies, how can it separate – which follows from the idea that love causes strife? In answer: Consider how light is manifested as particles in one medium, and as waves in another medium. Similarly with love – in one situation, it unifies, and in another situation, it separates.
3 Unity is the feeling of love. When we identify with something or someone, we feel at one with that object. This is the sentience of love.
4 I hate mendacity because I love the truth; I love mendacity because I hate the truth ̶ either way, I love-hate Love; contradictions and all.
5 With the consciousness of love and strife, I identify what actually is occurring at any given time.
6 Everything is in relationship; nothing is on its own. This statement, “Nothing is on its own,” can be taken negatively; meaning: the absence of everything; or positively: the essence of everything; which is not itself a thing.
7 Love is attraction; strife is detraction (repulsion)
8 Agitation –-storm-strife; and calm (love).
9 Love causes strife. I feel sorry for my son that he has to be alone. That causes me pain – strife.
10 Change is the way of strife, the way of life, the way of the world.
