Ok as per not so popular request, this is Volume two, in a series of threads
that could only proceed, well, until I run out of inspiring questions for the members
of ATS to ponder upon. Truthfully, I have no idea where this idea may go or end up.
I guess it's just like everything else for me. And for many of you as well.
The answer is blow'in in the wind. As you may also find the answer to volume twos
question, in " The Winds of Life " series.

What is the greater to be measured of we humans ? How much we have loved
at the end of our gentle existence ? Or how much we are loved, by the time we
pass and solve the great mystery? In short, does it mean more to you to be loved ?
Or to love? I look forward to your answers. And offer this for the time you
may take to contemplate an answer.

Once again your manners and civility are greatly appreciated

Neither is greater or lesser. We are here to experience love in all it's forms, and to experience each sort of love from the perspective of both the giver and receiver. Even unhealthy forms of love teach us valuable lessons that are necessary for our growth as loving and spiritual beings.

Ah the aul' "its better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all" conundrum.
Experiencing love is an amazing feeling. Both ways. i would go with being in love with someone, but that is only when your love is reciprocated. i cant imagine loving my girlfriend but her not loving me.
i never felt love from either parent as a child, so my girlfriend's love is the only time ive felt it.
And what a feeling! To love her back is a stronger feeling because it changes my being, it alters me.
More so than her love for me, although that is strong in itself.
We're together 11 years this St. Stephens Day, and our love gets stronger every day.
i realise some people may never experience love their whole life, the love of a partner im talking about.
And then only some experience true love. Soulmate for life love.
I would say to love someone is the stronger/greater love, if thats appropriate
