LOCAL AND NON-LOCAL
On Meanings of Love
Brief and simplified discernment to complement the segment in the presentation on love:
Love is expressed in all spiritual and religious scriptures, literatures, and practices. However, it is not well defined, specified, elaborated, and expressed:
There are many types of love such as fake love, simple love, sexual love, real love, true love, loving kindness, love oneself, love of ego, love of identities or identification (such as tribalism, nationalism, racism, and on and on), inclusive love, exclusive love, love with conditions, unconditioned love, love of arts, love of philosophy love of science, love of materials, love with attachment, love without attachment, in and out groups love, love your enemies, love of animals, love of humanity, love of sentient, love of life and existence, love of nature, and on and on (and many types of love are very similar while others can be very different). And as such love requires practices or living experience or transformation and evolution through process of being and becoming or self-realization and self-actualization. And therefore, implied such as knowledge, reasoning, meaningful transformation, maturity, characters, emotional intelligent, intuition, virtues, compassion, wisdom, altruism, actions, and efforts. These are functions or causalities of love. And vice versa. And therefore, as love, are infinite. And for which there are naturalness-spiritual paraphrases or expressions such as "Infinite Wisdom", "Infinite Compassion", and "Perfection of Wisdom" for which "Pefect or Perfection" also implied infinite potentialities of possibilities.
And first and foremost, self-realization and self-actualization. Another way of saying is the most integrated and comprehensive meaningful development of sentient transformation and evolution through self-realized and sel-actualized process of being and becoming just as the greater whole.
And the closest summarized or condensed suggestion is the 8 +2 or 10 Noble Path (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHcvF39BeJM) a presentation even through the expression were not specific or need to be broad since love (i.e. such as in terms of types, levels, conditions, circumstances, there are infinite sentient, and among others) is infinite. And actually are guidance to path or process of being and becoming or self-realization and self-actualization even through they are not explicitly preached or presented and emphasized as such. And is not part of lay and monasteries practices and discourses. And therefore, rarely mentioned, discussed, encouraged, and practiced.
For example, reported experience of love and compassion are the norm for NDE experiencers. And most common expressions are infinite love and compassion, beyond imagination love and compassion, and never known and experience such love and compassion or equivalent expressions. However, these should be recognized and known as wholeness of oneness love and compassion in an interdependent and interconnected world of infinite parts. And therefore, infinite love and compassion for infinite parts and sum of its parts. Or vice versa. Another simple way of saying is expression of emotional intelligent of great heartful-mindful care mind or wholeness of oneness heartful-mindful love.
