【D.G. Wander ⎮永遠璀璨的玫瑰 / The Forever Bright Rose】
The mercy of Our Lady is boundless. From the moment of conception, she decided to love her son unconditionally, no matter his status. This kind of unconditional love is a realm that is difficult for mortals to reach. Only the love of the Virgin can achieve and spread widely in the world.
Mortal love has limits and love usually has a premise like ''I have to be rewarded'', ''to get the same love for each other'', or ''to be good to me before I can love you''. But the Virgin's love is unconditional, whether ''you love me or not'', ''I will reciprocate or not'', the Virgin will do her best to love you for the rest of her life. What great love is this? It is extremely difficult to find this kind of love in the world, and it is true love that truly achieves this state. It is a pity that to define love by such a standard, the "true love" we often say should be discounted. Will you give your love completely by sacrificing yourself? It's hard for humans to do it.
The Virgin Mary here exists as the mother of the universe. When the time Trinity fell into a painful ordeal because of the fall of Lucifer, the mother of the universe embraced him with her endless love. She reminded him that Trinity was born from the first rays of light in the universe and that he must master the changes of the yin and yang polarities, which are mutually exclusive and embrace each other. Light and darkness, life and death are in one. Only by understanding this truth can he maintain the balance of the universe and make all things come alive. Trinity accepted the reminder from the mother of the Universe and her endless love so that he was able to break through the obstacles of the abyss and continue to master the life of the universe. If it weren't for the love of the mother of the universe, he might continue to struggle with endless sorrow.
The love of Our Lady, like a splendid rose that blooms forever, we not only praise her greatness and beauty but also feel incomparable comfort from her. This is the unconditional love that we can experience in the love of the Virgin, a love that transcends the world and then sublimates into universal love.
The "love" we often talk about is more like the love between men and women, or the love between parents and children. And great love is different from these loves. It is a state of harmonious coexistence between human beings and the environment, resulting in a state of unity between man and nature, and from it, we can realize the vast power emanating from the inside out. Because modern people are mediocre in their daily work, there is no time for them to appreciate the beauty of nature, therefore, it is difficult to describe. If you can appreciate the harmony between humans and nature, you can more easily appreciate the love of the mother of the universe. She loves nature, the world, and even everything in the universe, not only human beings. We only look at love from the perspective of human beings, and that's why we really underestimate the realm of love.
If one can experience the great love in harmony with the environment, one can further appreciate the infinite love of the Virgin. Her love is in all things and is given unconditionally. If you have a deeper understanding of love, you can let go of the stereotype of love, that is, the other party must also give, or the expectation that you must be rewarded. Love does not seek its own benefit but only seeks to give to others, to give to others without regard for return. When you are sad because of the loss of love, think about the infinite love of Our Lady, and you will feel that the small wounds you suffer are nothing. True love is only for yourself, not for others.
Some people may think that human beings talk about "love" too often. But if you look at love from the perspective of "the mercy of the Virgin", it would be very precious.
