“Power, regardless how well-intentioned, seems to result suffering. Love, being vulnerable, absorbs it. In a point of convergence about a hill called Calvary, God renounced the 1 [power] for the sake of the different [love].”
Power is found everywhere, however all too frequently it is very manifest wickedly. It causes suffering because the force is inflicted over others, whether it really is intentioned or not. Such force is about show inside many interactions, even (especially) in the family dynamic.
I’ve had family dynamics where certain members have gone from their method to create a energy imbalance plus I’ve sat plus watched the alternative member of the family, whom is normally weaker, squirm. We either usurp force or you absolutely have it. Either technique it’s incorrect to exert energy over others, yet it can continue to arise considering you reside inside a sinful plus broken planet.
But there is hope in the chance presented where overtures to energy are present. God should detest it whenever somebody abuses force to utilize it for their gain. Yet he has provided you the most perfect tool to gain victory over the manipulation of force.
THE HOPE BEYOND POWER
We all find the misuse of force rather discouraging, distracting, plus even enraging. It gets you down plus you retort inside rage, submit inside worry, or take up advocacy. The latter way is ideal, however just whenever you utilise a hope beyond wanting power; a superior hope: love.
This hope beyond force finds its house inside love. And such a thing because this love is beyond the carnal. Love cannot sink to depths under its divine self. The integrity of love is pure plus unchallengeable.
This hope beyond force, that is love, is ironical; it appears weak inside its vulnerability, yet it happens to be ever sturdy inside its dignity of integrity. God honours love plus likes to break down forces for force.
Such a thing because this love conquers energy each time considering it plays with a different set of rules. Love’s rules are shrouded inside eternity. They’re unbeatable.
Love like this leapfrogs the requirement to resist force. It responds to the exercise of overbearing force by absorbing the force, plus therefore defusing it. As a theory it appears not to create thus much sense. But one genuine attempt at just loving the individual that is weak enough to manipulate you by their force might indicate the true energy existing inside love, beyond the want to wrest control.
Power irritates plus causes resistance, while love is magnetically interesting. Just something will beat the misuse of energy, relationally: not resistance, however, love. Ours is the opportunity: to rise above manipulations of energy by the energy of love.
