Light is a wave process, but waves are a kind of illusion. In fact, a wave is a particle that is constantly destroyed and re-created. This is the nature of light, this is the nature of love, time, and life in General. Every moment our world is destroyed and created again.
Nothing wrong with being destroyed or slowed down, no... just erased the black with an eraser and released a little light. Light is joyous, light is pure energy and free space for creation. There is nothing to fear, love always revives.
For hope to come true, it must be identical with the concept of love. You can't turn hope into an idol. Love is immortal, and idols are mortal. Imagine that your hope will die and not come true, are you ready to implement it anyway? Is the process important to you? The fact itself? Are you ready to do it, even if you know that it will die? If your faith and willingness to realize your goal remains unshakeable, even if your hope is crucified on the cross... then this is love. Just don't lie to yourself.
The crucifixion Jesus on the cross is a metaphor that your faith should not be dependent on other people's opinions. Even if your love has been crucified, you must be the one to resurrect it. True love is good because no matter how many times it is crucified, there are those who will rekindle the flame of love.
If your faith cannot survive the crucifixion of your love on the cross, it is a false faith, and you are a vile liar and a proud man. True love must be reborn after death. The symbol of the Christmas tree is a reminder that love lives on our strength.
