Human love is almost always phony. No matter how sincere it appears on the surface. To recognize the true face of “love”, try to see what happens when it has been disappointed. In humans, vengeance, hatred, hostility, and a host of other emotions are awakened. We want the person punished, to suffer, to “get what they deserve”. The climax of our wish is for the person to feel grief and pain, and we are quick to “cut them off” without any further regard.
But Divine Love is different. When we err, though it is severe and unrelenting in the commensurate distribution of Justice, the purpose is different. Divine Love, through all the forces of “karma”, promotes the rehabilitation and improvement of the human spirit. So the goal of Divine love is the continual refinement and ennoblement of the human spirit, through even the hardest lessons. The “reaping” is a means to an end, and the end is the continual growth of the spiritual personality.
You see? When disappointed, the phony love of man just wants punishment for the other. Beyond the suffering, there is no wish, just the desire for the other to “taste what they put us through”. But Divine Love encourages the betterment of the human spirit through even the fiercest storms. The goal is liberation and improvement of the spirit, no matter how severe and rough the reciprocal action is. This goal can never change.
When you peel back the layers, you realize behind human love is selfishness in various forms. But with Divine Love, it is the continual betterment of the spiritual personality, no matter what means It employs to serve this end.
A difference of day and night.
That is why it is important today to seek clarity about the activity of the Divine Will in Creation. For the Divine Will is the inexorable operation of the system of immutable laws through and in which Divine Love manifests and governs the entire Universe. When we recognize the working of these perfect Laws, we thereby see the unchangeable Divine Love within it.
In this recognition, we thereby smell the revitalizing scent of the Divine Rose. Inhaling this sweet aroma that is our spiritual elixir of life, we are then filled with joyous gratitude for the Eternal Love of the Father.
