Love is one of the hardest things to define. We know it is a feeling, as tenderness, and as passion for someone or even for some object. Love is also defined as sexual passion. But what about Divine Love? How is that defined? Perhaps the closest definition is that of parental love.
Parental love begins before birth, carries on into infancy when a baby is helpless to do anything for themselves, and then into childhood, the teenage years, and adulthood. Often parental love is seen in the things they do for their child. In infancy the parent does everything without expectation of return, and the love at that age is powerful, especially considering the sleepless nights and worn-out days.
Love is challenged again in childhood and sometimes extremely so in the teenage years. But, once a child becomes an adult. the quality of that love changes again. It matures from adult/child to adult/adult. Then as the parent ages, the roles often reverse and the child is the adult and the parent the child. As relationships change, so does love. The same holds true for our relationship with our Higher Power. As we mature in our spiritual nature, our understanding of The Divine matures.
