Default The Infinate nature of Love

I equate Love with God. For me, these have several things in common.

It is eternally existing.
It is infinite in nature.
It seems illusive at times.
You can't possess it.
You may or may not be able to experience it.
Our ability to experience it is limited by our human limitations.
Our ability to express it is limited to our human capacities.
Sometimes is seems to make sense and other times not.
A description or understanding of it that everyone would embrace might be too much to ask for.
We nevertheless continue to try to describe and understand it.
To be able to experience it is something to strive for and that striving makes life meaningful.
The key to life is in being fully engaged and peacefully detached simultaneously and authentically in each moment.
