The essence of love is truth, wisdom, compassion, freedom, and joy. When all of these things are brought together we experience peace, which is the fruit of love. Secondly love cannot be hoarded, it is a codependent experience . When one has love one gives love on some level, be it conscious or subconscious. Because the co-conscious experience of love can occur in this way, when one stops loving, everyone suffers. And since god is love we could call this hell. But when one dose love, then everyone gains regardless of what the object of love is. When one feels true love, (which is transcendental and non-discriminating and is not necessarily the love from the story books) the seed of love is planted, and with proper environment the seed begins to grow, and as such love grows. So never stop loving and love will abide. God is love so the way to Christs return is through universal love.
