- I Corinthians XIII -
Love, in the sense it is used in 1 Corinthians 13, is not a feeling per se...(tho one can have feelings about it); it is without judgment (tho one can have judgments about it), it is all supportive and all encompassing (tho one can reject and define and separate it from themselves and others).
I agree. As I understand it, "Love"--the Greek for which is 'agape'--is that which includes all-inclusive good willings, plus all good and appropriate feelings.
All feelings are good feelings.
Not all feelings, feel good.
The human nervous system can reflect the infinite within, but it is the FINITE judgment which determines what is good, based on relative values of personal belief.
Belief can limit the reflection of the infinite into the relative personal system of self judgment to separate any and all things from the individual ideal.
When this separation occurs, suffering ensues.
