The Ideas behind the Words

I don’t think it is a coincidence that the root of the word for Zeus means “life” and the root of the word Jehovah means “life”.

Cupid shooting an arrow produces love in someone’s heart.  We associate it now with only romantic love. 

The word “torah”, translated usually “law”, has the idea of an arrow giving direction.  The target of the torah is summed up as love.  We associate that now with a more profound type of love, but still love.

Love in all its forms is a universal value for humanity. Transcendent or divine powers are life giving ones that target love in the human heart. 

We use different words than others and argue with them as if we are in total disagreement, only to discover that the meanings behind the words are the same.

Sigh…

    I think that this is overly simplistic.
