(((:::- ABOUT LOVE -:::)))


If you love someone, you accept him as he is.
But if you accept him as he is, you don't truly love him,
because if you truly loved him,
you would want the best for him, which is virtually always for him to be better than he is. How did our ancestors deal with this paradox?
Enoch hid in a cave, Noah preached listlessly for a century, Abraham sought the redeeming quality, and Moses loved us, selflessly and unequivocally.
An examination of the lives of these four great men, who lived and loved 3000 to 5000 years ago, tells the story of a journey from self in quest of the most potent and altruistic of human emotions.
Man, by nature, is a selfish creature.
Even in his relationships with others he tends to focus primarily on himself or, at most, on his self-colored perception of his fellow. "Love" is the endeavor to transcend this intrinsic selfishness and truly relate to ones fellow, to be sensitive to and devoted to his needs as an individual distinct of oneself and ones own stake in the relationship. Love is not only about caring and giving but also about influencing.
When the Torah commands "Love your fellow as yourself," it does so in the context of the obligation to rebuke
him if he is behaving in a negative and destructive manner the immediately preceding verse reads, "Do not hate your brother in your heart; rebuke your fellow..." No one would stand by as a loved one suffers hunger or is threatened by violence; no less so, if one sees his fellow suffering from spiritual malnutrition or moral blindness, he must make every effort to reach out to him, to enlighten him, to offer guidance and assistance. Thus the Torah instructs, "Do not hate your brother in your heart": do not succumb to the all-too-prevalent reaction to the wrongdoing of others contempt for the "sinner. " Instead of despising him, respond with concrete and pragmatic steps to cure him of his spiritual ills. Rebuke him, by word and example, with sensitivity and loving concern, and assist him to rise to his true, quintessential state of goodness. The selflessness and the influence of love are proportionate to each other.
As this overview will demonstrate, the more selfless are your relationships with your fellow, the more extensive your influence upon him will be. Conversely, the more your vision of your fellow and your involvement with him is defined by your self and its self-colored perceptions, the less he will respond to your efforts on his behalf.
