On Being a Whore

When we “love” someone to get something in return, (which is usually an unconscious demand that she/he love Me in return), we will sooner or later be disappointed and this “love” will transform into something very different, something very negative. This sort of ‘bartering for love’ is a form of whoredom (and there are male whores, not just female whores). This, btw, is why the God of the Bible “hates harlotry” – this is Symbolic, it has nothing to do with literal sexual activity, it is not an excuse to feel superior and condemn other people “in the name of God”: rather, it is a teaching for our OWN inner psyche, an admonition to not treat OURSELVES this way, to not be a psychological whore. It has nothing to do with judging others. On the other hand, “Conscious love” (sometimes called “Christian love”, though this awareness is far older than Christianity) means to love someone WITHOUT demanding or expecting ANYTHING in return. This means loving someone even when they are being a pain in the ass, even when they are being “an enemy”. This is hard work.
