Teachings on Love (3): Giving Love, & Lust
Because love is both giving and receiving, those who seek only to receive find the well of love runs dry. If only they could see that! But so many mistake the nature of love as blindly one-sided gratification: “Look at me, look at me! Love me NOW, give me what I want NOW or I’ll be really mad!” Love supplies our essential needs with abundance, but is a miser toward desires. A child needs love and attention, but an adult needs to both give and receive love and attention. Without flow in both directions, love doesn’t have a chance.
Attraction between bodies is natural, and is neither good nor bad. When attraction becomes entwined with ego/android habit energies, we can call that lust. Lust too is neither good nor bad. But when sexual energies are captured by the ego/android, then those energies are diverted from manifesting as love.
