Bestowal Is A Quality That Precedes Love

294.3Comment: You were talking about sacrifice and love because one cannot exist without the other. But love is like a gift. You either have it or you do not. It either comes or it does not.

My Response: What does it mean “it comes”? From whom, from what?

Comment: Perhaps from the effort or from something else. But it comes as a result.

My Response: As a result! It means that love can also be developed.

Question: What we are looking for is in our hands? If you work hard and you will get it?

Answer: Of course! However, one should come to the understanding that this is the result of work and not some feelings. And nothing more.

Question: Is love always a sacrifice?

Answer: You should not talk about love. It is a really high feeling that fills our desires when they are fully directed to bestowal. This is already topflight. Therefore, it is better not to talk about love, but simply about the quality of bestowal.

Bestowal is a quality that precedes love.

Question: Does it not imply sacrifice?

Answer: The quality of bestowal implies that I can receive nothing for my own sake except the minimum necessity for existence. This is already called bestowal, although there is practically none of it here. That is, I restrict myself in receiving, but for the sake of the goal.
