Tolstoy: “Everything that I understand I understand only because I love.”


As a survivor of abuse, I can say, Love Is Knowing what hate is doing and how to survive it MHO.

“Forgive them Father for they know not what they do!!

One is called to be as wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove. I think Love shows one how to practically do this and walk in the world circumspectly with this mind. (The mind of Christ?)
Before I knew what I now call love there was an existential bare factual existence of Brute Force aliveness.
Before I understood what love is it was a compulsion to exist. MHO it was a amoral.


Pascal writes that “Faith tells us what the senses do not, but not the contrary of what they see; it is above, not against them.”

Thank you Kim I had not heard of these:
Tolstoy: “Everything that I understand I understand only because I love.”
And:
Pascal writes that “Faith tells us what the senses do not, but not the contrary of what they see; it is above, not against them.”
Above, yes, mysterious and inaccessible, to some degree, with the equipment I have up here in my head and heart, but I think, not unknowable or completely unknowable!! There are many ways to know love, I think, such as feeling, thinking, hearing, touching, smelling, understanding Etc.

MHO science is OF love:

1.
expressing the relationship between a part and a whole.
2.
expressing the relationship between a scale or measure and a value.
