Pure love of creatures is not love of God, but love which has passed through God as through fire. Love which detaches itself completely from creatures to ascend to God and come down again is associated with the creative love of God. Thus the two opposites which rend human love are united: to love the beloved being just as he is, and to want to recreate him.
