The following sentences talks about love from book entitled “The Laws of the Sun”.
2. Love Exists
All of us have had many opportunities to contemplate love, yet none of us has ever seen it. We cannot hold love in our hands or take it out and show it to people. However, no one has ever doubted that love exists. We all believe that it does, and we seek more of it. We all set out on the eternal journey through life with this aspiration for a love that we can be sure of.
If no one has ever seen or touched love, could it be just a fantasy? When we consider this, we find that love is not the only invisible thing that people believe in. For instance, you cannot see the wind with your eyes, but when you see autumn leaves being swept through the air and hear the rustling of a summer’s breeze as it passes through the trees, you know that it is the wind at work. The wind is invisible, but you have felt its gentle touch on your skin, its fury in a storm, and its cold fingers in an icy gust of wind. We all agree that this is what we call “the wind.” But we cannot capture it, put it in a box, and take it out later to show to someone.
Love is like the wind. No one doubts its existence, and we feel it and sense it all around us, but we cannot hold it as we do physical objects. You will never be able to offer tangible proof of love’s existence, but everyone can feel its effects. Although we cannot grab hold of love, point to it, and say, “This is love,” everyone can feel love when it is present.
How similar love is to God! Countless people throughout the ages have believed in God and spoken or written about Him, but no one has ever been able to demonstrate proof of God’s presence. Throughout history, many sages in many realms of knowledge-people of religion, philosophers, poets, and writers-have grappled with the question of God’s existence, but even the greatest among them couldn’t produce a shred of tangible evidence to support His existence. Even Jesus Christ could not do so; even he could not point to God, his Heavenly Father, sitting in Heaven, and say to his followers, “Look there. That is God.”
Jesus frequently told his followers: “whoever has seen me has seen the Father… The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works” (John 14:9-11). Jesus told people to find God in his words and actions-and they did. Jesus attracted such a large following because people saw God in his powerful sermons and his dignified presence.
