Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.
… … …For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face.Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood.
So faith, hope and love abide, these three; but the greatest of those is love.
(1 Corinthians, 13)
Love never ends…
I touch your face, I go past the stone we met – I am rain, in the face of desert.
I will end one day, one moment – I will cease, depart to another dimension. Like rain, evaporating from the face of ground.
Who knows when we come closer and closer, into touch with each other… When we evaporate, where do we go? … Do we?
Love never ends…
Love is a fire feeding us, feeding on us, feeding with us. It is the aeternal fire of mutual knowledge and staying in touch.
Further than hands will reach, further than life reaches, love still is.
I am in rain, touching your face, mutely, wordlessly, worldlessly.
Prophecies will pass away, there is a moment when time ends, when we see no further. On the brink of the unknown we know, beyond all foreknowledge, goes love.
You take me up in your palms like a cup, to hold me. Love is a cup that carries us through the impossible ends of time.
Tongues will cease, all that can be put into words, all the description and differences we burden the words with, it all will fade away, into the all-embracing acceptance and wonder of love.
Love is eloquent silence, the slow motion of the God-filled word that speaks from heart to heart.
Through this rain, the sun shines on you, and I behold you engulfed in a multi-faceted halo. The voice of love pronounces us into words that created the world.
Knowledge will pass away, when the tiny particles of time will stop running from the past into future, I will know it all – the process of getting acquainted with the world will be over.
I am rain, contained in clouds far above the ground. I terminate my cloud-ness, I gain the knowledge of being raindrop and that of landing on soil. Your knowledge of the natural laws hinders me not.
At some point in time, all that can be learned, will be known, except love, for love is unfathomable, it knows no borders, the more it is known, the more there is to be learned of it.
My eyes are blurred, by water or tears, it matters not – I reach out for the moment my vision will be freed.
When I will behold the reality beyond reflection.
Now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face…
I look into distance, and only a haze stands in front of my eyes. The haze is the sign of the incompleteness of my senses.
You are so far that my physical senses cannot reach you. Haze and distance are stronger than me – the me of here and now. Love takes my eyes and carries them through the haze of distance. Through/with love can I behold you wherever you are.
Love is the cleansing matter, the cleaning substance for our blurred senses.
Love sees face to face, and shuns not.
Love distorts not. It is the Real Image reflected in the Impeccable Mirror.
I behold you. You see me. That Act of Beholding, in reality, is love.
I am but a part, apart from the whole. I know you but in part. I know only that much as is revealed unto me. Love unites me, links me to the lost wholeness. I know but in part, but the part I know with, is a part of the wholeness of love.
Love understands what I am why I am and where I am heading to. It is the Actual Fullness of Knowledge that condemns not.
Love sanctifies, love elucidates, love makes the beauty and the beholder shine forth.
Love beholds not itself. It has washed itself away. Like the all-consuming fire, love lights up those whom it burns.
In love I am known, known fully, the way I am – love knows, understands, and turns not away.
Beyond all foreknowledge and wild guesses, overrunning all the mute feelings and obscure sensations, calming all the whirlwinds of emotion, love comes,
whatever it is in us, with us – love exceeds it, surpasses it in clarity and fairness.
Love is eternal. I will end one moment. You will not exist forever. Beyond the bonds of death, we will behold each other, feel each other, understand each other –
Through that all-surpassing greatest force, knowledge and Person who has long ago
sought, chosen, upheld, understood
both of us, all of us.
So faith, hope and love abide, these three.
