Love is an unbroken circle of three interwoven dimensions: receiving, sharing and giving. These three dimensions are as cyclical stages which we go through repeatedly in loving. The analogy of a baseball diamond is useful here: in baseball there are three bases which must be tagged, and in the proper sequence in order to safely get home. Home represents satisfaction and fulfillment in loving and being loved. With love, first base is receiving, second is sharing and third base is giving. Love itself, and especially the love of God, must first be fully received, then openly shared and finally given to others to consummate itself. Take in, share and give, again and again, this is love’s perpetual process.
