What is Love?

Unconditional Love and Happiness

The essence of this wonderful feeling, this joyful state of being is that  Love can and must be trained!  To choose Happiness as the way of Life, one needs to train Love...  The Soul that chose the path of developing virtues becomes intoxicated with good qualities, and it starts fully and deeply loving and trusting, living within this space of openness, living within the space of Being Love.

Unconditional Love vs. Falling in Love

Professor Arthur Arun, the New York psychologist, studied the dynamics of what happens when people fall in love and within his experiment he asked complete strangers to spend around half an hour together, to share intimate details of their lives with each other, and they were asked to stare into each others eyes for a few minutes, silently.  As a result of this experiment, many couples reported that they felt a strong attraction / falling in love for each other and two of them even got married.

What is Love and Can Love be Unconditional?

So, what do you think? What is love? If we enter the space of openess and trust, can wefall in love with a complete stranger?

If you have experienced love, you will agree with me that being loved and loving fills us with a warm, secure, floating feeling.  Living love, we start listening to our inner-most being, and we chose to be happy..  Touched by the Love Magic we open, and dissolve our boundaries.   However, the Cupid's arrow also carries jealousy, it exposes us to our ugly side, working with our sub-consciousness fears...

Our philosophers, our poets, our scientists, tell us that the formula of our Universe is Love, governed by Venus.  She combines the highest spiritual with the lowest material qualities - Love materialised on Earth.  She is born in water, from mud, and she bears the lotus.  Her mystical mantra is: ‘Love is the law, but Love controlled by Will’.

For Love to Become Unconditional it needs to become a Conscious Effort

The love parents feel for their children, the love between partners, the love for friends are all wonderful exercises for worshipers of Love.  When in love, we have a tendency to exaggerate small positive qualities or not to see negative ones, getting disappointed when we ‘fall-out’ of love and open our eyes to all the partner's vices.  Love needs to enter our daily meditations, become our guide, and become part of our being. 

About Unconditional Love

‘No matter how new the face or how different the dress and behavior, there is no significant division between us and other people. It is foolish to dwell on external differences, because our basic natures are the same.  Ultimately, humanity is one and this small planet is our only home, If we are to protect this home of ours, each of us needs to experience a vivid sense of universal altruism. It is only this feeling that can remove the self-centered motives that cause people to deceive and misuse one another.’

Dalai Lama on Unconditional Love

 

living the spirit

not chasing it - every now and then

when we remember

 

it is the journey that counts

Life is God

- not the destination
 

and I vow to live it

with every thought and every word and every action

 

to see it in every soul

that meets mine

 

to be there - in the centre

refusing to give-in or give-up

 

cause it is the only truth that counts

that is alive and

gives real and ultimate pleasure
