The Love Cohesion

In your opinion, what is the best way to develop the ability to love others (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1599).

At the source of love is mercy (or Christlike grace).  The fundamental requirement to effectuate love is the willingness to forgo condemnatory judgment.  Thus, strongly allied with love is the willingness to forgive and maintain multiple almost imperceptible reconciliations.  Empathy as stimulant precedes love and its absence on the mental landscape has tragic consequences.  Empathy is a strong antidote to fear and judgment.  Empathy is the defining characteristic of love, for "love" without empathy is essentially a judgmental power game.  Empathy can be visualized as the perceptual intersection of individuals.  Without strong intersections in force, community is impossible.  The fundamental challenge in developing the ability to love to is cultivate empathy and maintain strong perceptual intersections.
