The spirit of love is so much more than mere romantic love. While romantic love is thrilling and potentially consuming, restricting one’s understanding of the spirit of love to its romantic nuance is like describing the body of humanity solely in terms of the first person you dated.
The spirit of love is vast. It is the source of all power in the universe and the seed of all of creation. Without it, nothing would exist. Even science, at its core, is the study of the effects of love in the universe. All things that exist do so because of love.
That power, like any of its derivatives, can be used constructively or destructively. It drives both formation and decay. An understanding of truth provides the keys to understanding the right use of love. Without truth, love becomes a dangerous power to those unprepared to use it.
You are made free by truth because you come to understand the right use of the power of love.
