There are subtleties about relationships with others that can't possibly be taken in unless one develops an organic sensitivity to one's inner life.
Because Love is the highest principle, it exists unadulterated, eternal, and pure; we have the privilege of manifesting within it, but we cannot own it, and it never belongs to us. We are mere agents of expression.
This is what love costs, Christ was telling us.
May your soul be filled with light.
