power is fun, love isn't about us

Power and love offer very different feedback loops. Why does power and control feel so addicting? 
Why does love feel so hard?

“What makes the temptation of power so seemingly irresistible… is that power offers an easy substitute for the hard task of love. It seems easier to be God than to love God, easier to control people than to love people, easier to own life than to love life.”

Do we love? Or do we open ourselves to let God love through us?
