What love is – Qué es el amor

… ‘love’ is everything which makes us prefer God to the world and contemplation to earthly activity, wherever this alternative has any meaning. With God, love is the blessed affirmation of Himself: with Him by Beatitude, and ‘outside’ Him by the creation; the latter is like the outpouring of the divine Beatitude into nothingness. God is Love, in His Life and in His Act.
F. Schuon – Stations of Wisdom
… ‘amor’ es todo aquello que hace que prefiramos a Dios en lugar del mundo y a la contemplación en lugar de la actividad mundana, siempre que esta alternativa tenga algún sentido. Con Dios, el amor es la bendita afirmación de Sí mismo: con Él por la Beatitud, y ‘fuera’ de Él por la creación; esta última es como el derrame de la divina Beatitud en la nada. Dios es Amor, en su Vida y en su Acto.
F. Schuon – Estaciones de la Sabiduría
