    Are all humbled in the face of love? will every knee bow?


    did it hurt when you fell?

    Depend on what form of love you speaking of :)
    Love to God does not hurt.

    pretty much all forms have some form; especially when it's one sided, unrequited. even the sexual one requires someone to fall, lay down, kneel down, supine


    if you had stopped and masticated on this, chewed the cud, you would have known. food for thought

    Does it not depend on the person you ask, if they do not feel it is a pain to love God, to kneel down, and so on. There is no pain in that, physical love can be a pain when it ends, especially when one is rejected, but when a person can go past physical love, it stops hurting.

    has to do with humbling self in the face of something beautiful, divine


    it isn't suffering. it is as the buddha said, there is nothing loss in sharing, in sharing the Way of Love


    10. The Buddha said, “Those who rejoice in seeing others observe the Way will obtain great blessing.” A Sramana asked the Buddha, “Would this blessing be destroyed?” The Buddha replied, “It is like a lighted torch whose flame can be distributed to ever so many other torches which people may bring along; and therewith they will cook food and dispel darkness, while the original torch itself remains burning ever the same. It is even so with the bliss of the Way.”
