AGAPE

[noun]

1. “unconditional love”; divine love; love that is spiritual in its nature; love without limitation.

2. New Testament: charitable, selfless, altruistic, and unconditional love; the covenant love of God for humans, as well as the human reciprocal love for God; love for humanity.

[Alex Grey - Cuddle]

Any people living in this day and age feel out of place. The values of this world make them angry. Your unending want to love is squashed by your need to protect yourself and loved ones in this world. Whether you identify as a #starseed, #indigochild, #rainbowchild, or #crystalchild, the #universe has put you here for the specific purpose of helping bringing our world to #enlightenment!

So, live the life you dream everyday!
Manifest your reality!
Love unconditionally!
Except and include everybody!
Remember you are a part of a vast #consciousness that is ever expanding!

Η αλήθεια είναι ότι ακόμα κι αν προσπαθεί κανείς να ξεχάσει,ακόμα κι αν περάσουν μήνες,τα μάτια και τα σώματα όταν ξανασυναντηθούν ξέρουν τον τρόπο να μιλήσουν.

Korra's line about suffering and compassion didnt bother me but that's maybe because I was looking at it from a Christian perspective. Korra's saving Kuvira is a good example of agape love. Hope my take doesn't offend anyone.

I’m… not sure how your take could be seen as offensive.  o_0;

Agape definitely seems to apply to Korra’s interactions with Kuvira, in any case.  Korra might not have died for Kuvira, but she was willing to risk her life for an enemy who had tried to kill her only moments before.

What a great portrait of unconditional love it is!

Korra, bruised and exhausted, staring down the barrel of a weapon that can level a city for the sake of the woman who commissioned it.

Korra, holding that same woman in her arms like a child.

Korra, confronting her about her wrongdoings…

…and Korra, offering her understanding as an equal in spite of them.

I couldn’t ask for a better demonstration of love given freely, with no expectation of return, or of love for that which is not inherently lovable.  Korra saw herself in Kuvira, flaws and all, and she loved what she saw enough to risk her life for it.

I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising that this scene hit me so hard – agape is like catnip to me.  =)
