Each love is unique
Not a sliding scale from not-love to love;
it's love.

Perhaps.

Is that so unique? :popcorn:

Good question! :smile:

If each love is not unique, then we might conclude that love must be entirely formless and empty; but we know from experience that life and love cannot express itself without form... so love must be form as much as it is emptiness, and so love must be as unique as it is universal.

Love loves form as well as emptiness!

What do you think? Does this make any sense at all?

There is a very topic-fitting German poem by Erich Fried: "It Is What It Is, says love"

Here are many translations but none in English :(

What it is

It is nonsense, says Reason.
It is what it is, says Love.

It is harm, says Computation.
It is nothing but pain, says Fear.
It is desperate, says Insight.
It is what it is, says Love.

It is ridiculous, says Pride.
It is reckless, says Wariness.
It is impossible, says Experience.
It is what it is, says Love.

Erich Fried
Because, if our mothers, who have been kind to us
From beginningless time, are suffering,
What can we do with (just) our own happiness?
From 10th of 37 Bodhisattva Practices
