Meaning in Life Volume 2

The desire for an all-embracing love that is real and possibly reciprocal underlies our various attempts to love other persons. That is why religious love for a living deity more worthy of love than any alternative can be so compelling.

An acclaimed philosopher offers a systematic mapping of the various facets of love. In his widely acclaimed trilogy The Nature of Love, Irving Singer traced the development of the concept of love in history and literature from the Greeks to the twentieth century. In this second volume of his Meaning in Life trilogy, Singer returns to the subject of his earlier work, exploring a different approach. Without denying his previous emphasis on the role of imagination and creativity, in this book Singer investigates the ability of them both to make one's life meaningful. A “systematic mapping” of the various facets of love (including sexual love, love in society, and religious love), The Pursuit of Love is an extended essay that offers Singer's own philosophical and psychological theory of love. Rich in insight into literature, the history of ideas, and the complexities of our being, The Pursuit of Love is a thought-provoking inquiry into fundamental aspects of all human relationships.

The world will be safer and a paradise, if mankind learns to live with its innocence. Unconditional love is the cover cloth of the innocence. Instead of mankind to swim in the romantic lake of unconditional love for the discovery of the hidden paradise bewitching marriage and relationships; lack of awareness, mankind is swimming in the dirty gutters of false love, creating its own worst nightmares. Engaging in marriages, love and sex relationships with the ego’s mindless love tantamount to creating a timing bomb for your destruction. False love nourishes us with the bread of sorrows. Prior to selfishness, mankind has embraced the ego’s mindless love as the simple way of life. Individual’s nuts have transformed love and sex meant to be a divine gift into a merchandise commodity. Since love and sex became a merchandise commodity to be purchased and being manipulated by wealth, unconditional love has been buried under the great oceans surrounding the mother earth. False love is the major contributor to the atrocities caused in the name of love. This lovely book; ‘The Wings of Love Vol.2’ is of much significant to the human races. It highlights and guides mankind for the acknowledgement of the Supreme power of Love, the origin of Life Force. Alike, to enables mankind to distinguish between false love and natural love to avoid deceptions and atrocities caused in the name of love consistently. ‘Prevention is better than cure.’ Natural Love creates no misery. The living hell in which mankind is condemned by the mercy of false love can be transformed into the living heaven through the power of unconditional love. Love unconditionally, and you will always find pleasure in love. The power of Love conquers all.

Though love arises from an indiscriminate lust, it fixes upon a single beloved so that "he who shines with the light of one love can hardly think of embracing another woman, even a beautiful one." Exclusiveness of this sort contravenes ...

Theo-Logic is the third and crowning part of the great trilogy of the masterwork of theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar, following his first two parts, The Glory of the Lord and Theo-Drama. This is the third volume of Theo-Logic. Theo-Logic is a variation of theology, it being about not so much what man says about God, but what God speaks about himself. Balthasar does not address the truth about God until he first reflects on the beauty of God (The Glory of the Lord). Then he follows with his reflections on the great drama of our salvation and the goodness and mercy of the God who saves us (Theo-Drama). Now, in this work, he is ready to reflect on the truth that God reveals about himself, which is not something abstract or theoretical, but rather the concrete and mysterious richness of God's being as a personal and loving God.

“Abraham, take your son whom you love so much and sacrifice him as a burnt offering to Me on one of the mountains in Moriah.” Ever wondered what was going on in Abraham’s mind when God asks that of him? In this second instalment of ‘The Father’s love series,’ the veil between the mortal and the immortal world is further lowered for the reader to see first-hand the workings behind the scenes. From the perspective of an omniscient narrator, we follow the later adventures of Father Abraham and his son Isaac all the way to the early introductions of his grandsons—Esau and Jacob— and all the drama, lies, passion, betrayal, and fun in-between. Action-packed with colourful depictions of angelic activity of the kingdoms of Light and Darkness, ‘Volume 2 - February’ whisks the reader away on a fantastical rollercoaster ride through the eternal chess matches between angels and fallen angels; demons and heavenly beasts; hybrids and humans; the Dark Lord and the Great-Father-of-Spirits. With bated breath, we cheer, boo, weep, sigh and shout in triumph as we watch these characters race against time to destroy or secure humanity’s salvation plan.
