Dynamics of Love; The Realm of the Child begins with Parents
I have realized more deeply than ever before that the Purpose of Creation is first 'Object Partnership', or from God's point of view, finding True Parents, God's partners on earth. Then and only then can his 'True Love' expand to the world and cosmos. It begins from a point, much as science teaches us how the physical world was created; from a small point.
We may feel a bit left out after this realization (I know I do at times). God doesn't love like a fish, fertilizing all the eggs in the sea at once. We may naively feel that God's love is like the sunshine pouring down, and our daily affirmation of this is enough to make the magic of restoration happen. Then we look around and see such meager results, and problems growing exponentially larger. We can only conclude that something like this must be the case. We have a 'God connection' problem and must honestly realize it is true and seek to solve it.
God needs one object to fully love, and that object must fully reciprocate that love to reveal what True Love really is. Only then can real 'Love' be multiplied in our world. That object has never been found in the course of history. It is the reason a 'Messiah' or some link to God has been a major theme in all religions and philosophies.
Man abdicated his responsibility. By making excuses and pointing his finger, he left it to the 'angel' to be the center of love or 'luv' as I call it. That angel is unqualified to fill the universe with 'Love' even if he hadn't fallen. This reality has generated a race of finger pointers.
This explains why human history is not 'God's True Love Story', but a story of humankind's miserable failings. It explains why God seems something distant and trapped, like a insect locked in amber (see top image).
It explains why although our hearts goes out to the starving children of the world, it seems almost impossible to rectify the problem. Our hearts feel we should have enough, but in reality we don't have 'enough'. There is a power source that must be plugged in to. It can't be inserted half way for it to work. The connection must be complete.
I understand that I am created to be an autonomously loving sovereign soul. My identity as a unique child of God is the most important thing to me. But along with that, I understand that the love meant to bind men together was broken before it could solidify. That broken love is really God's broken heart. We have never been the true mature loving souls we should be.
For the reasons stated above, I begin this study of the 'Four Loves, Love 1: The Realm of the Child' on the foundation of the realization that we need 'True Parents'. The child's realm of love doesn't exist without the radiant love of his Parents shining down from above him. The Parent only become a parent when those beautiful, clear, alive and innocent eyes are shining back.
We need True Parents and they need us.
