What Is Love?

Love is complex. Too complex to explain it in a shorter sentence.

I’ve tried to be as short as possible again. I hope you’ll learn something new today – about love, you, or someone/something else.

Love is more than just a feeling.

For me to love means to give and to accept, without expecting anything in return. I’m still learning to do this in the right ways – to myself and to others.

Love is magnificent and beautiful, but it can be stressful too. I can feel it coming from my heart, wrapping up my body and shining into the outside world through my actions.

Questions for self-reflection:
How do you feel love? Where in your body can you feel it?
How do you show your love to yourself?
How do you show your love to others?

You can learn more about love in everyday life in different courses. I did so through Love as a Force for Social Justice at Stanford University. It was an informative course I’d recommend to all the dreamers like me, who’d like to change the world for the better but don’t know how. πŸ™‚

How would you define love?

  2. I like your description of love – in that it is selfless and something bigger than us, but ultimately something we get back. We get back what we give out.

  3. Love is something I feel in the centre of my being. Being in the presence of one you love gives utter peace and well being. This works equally for love of place…as in a Natural environment….(for me this is my holy place). Or when with a beloved pet. Pure love is unconditional, I believe.
