Divine Love Versus Ordinary Love

It's not uncommon for people to dismantle the contents of mystery
And in this recklessness pouring themselves into the bowl of selfishness
In our passion to pursue earthly desires
We dismantled the divine Love
And assembled ordinary love to suit our immense appetites
We were never satisfied with the contents of unconditional Love
It was pushing us towards each other but we had other plans
We wanted to eat from the palm of life with forks and knives
Not only did we want the juicy nectar
We wanted to create the chemistry of the juicy nectar in our own laboratories (hearts)
We want to harness the power of Love in our own misguided experiments
So, we created ordinary love out of our forgetfulness
Out of the nothingness of our being, we created a force that surpasses all forces
But there was a catch…it was unstable and full of uncertainties
It was a time/space entity, total devoid of all the attributes of unconditional Love
It was as sweet as the divine nectar but it was also poisonous
Fully loaded with all the toxins of life
Ordinary love is not equivalent to the divine mystery (Unconditional Love)
That which is forever flowing is true Love
That which has no burdens and expectations
Its river has no barriers
Its waters are the waters of the spirit
Divine Love is a garment for the selfless
Those who are clothed with humility
It's the true substance of existence
Capable of nourishing a barren womb of life
And igniting the fires of hope
Divine Love has no end and beginning
It's forever available
It's the ecstasy of being
