What does it mean that the Thrones “sacrificed” their will in the form of warmth. Then the Kyriotetes “offered their gift” of grace, etc. It sounds a bit like the Thrones gave away their will, but that doesn’t seem right.
That is exactly what it means. They gave their innermost essence, that unique gift. I find it interesting to read that they did not disappear after they did that: they dared to give all they had, and they were changed to another level in doing so.
I am content in thinking of this as an open question that I can keep trying to understand.
Perhaps at some time in the future, in an identical sacrifice, we will give away our love. Maybe we are only practicing learning how to do that here on earth.
