I don't understand love as a quality of consciousness! (i mean specifically selfless love, i understand selfish love)( i also understand compassion and sacrifice out of love)
(i got this idea and will use terms from studying Achintya Bhedabheda particularly bhaktivedanta prabhupada ) (which is a bhakti cult, that has, from my understanding, the highest level of love as being in a sexual union with another, and taken from the context of this bhakti cult, i take as an allusion to the secret teaching of tantra.)
my idea is love is a mix between
laya yoga (dissolution of self and merging with the Supreme Consciousness)
and krishna lila rasa (developing an intimate personal relationship with ones own inner god and seeing ones Relationship with others as a relationship with god and that is experienced through the spiritual play of life. which, this play, is the individual spiritual spark, experiencing, through the sapience of sin, the attributes and quality of the being i.e. the various virtues of krishna. the point of the rasa lila is to be cognizant of the attributes of krishna, or the being, as they are expressed through conditioned existence)
so combine these two and i ask is This is deep true love?
in other words we are simultaneously one and different from creation, love is what unites and seperates us, and selfless love is to merge with the universal spirit and universal soul and to take part in the universal point of creation? how to understand love as a quality of consciousness?
