Consider: and is Love a dangerous Emotion? I was thinking about the many different stories that I guess many of you can relate to that has caused pain in your love life, and in some instances has been dangerous for you to handle!

So what are your experiences in the matters of the Emotion called Love!

I agree with Michael and Michaela, so no need for me to answer. Only to say that your very questions is based on a misconception that god and love are seperate, when in fact they are one and the same thing...

@ Eddie: Thank you for your comment. I understand your point, but I am only asking the question, therefore, it is not necessarily my belief!

I agree with Michael.Real love is not an emotion... it is the very essence of who we are.

It isn't dependent on anything or anyone and sees beyond the physical form, always recognizing itself in another with no conditions attached... it sees beyond the veil of illusion. Real love is what we are all aspiring to realize and living our life from that perspective is an aspiration well worth attaining.

maybe physical "love" should have a different name

Well you have two questions.

First, love was not created Love IS creation itself.

Secondly love as an emotion? Are you talking about what most of us "think" is love but is really just an attachment to an idea that a human relationship is love?

Love at it's very deepest core can not be described on human terms. We like to use it as a label to represent some idea of what we THINK love is.

it has been said that impersonal love is the cement that holds all things in orderly sequence,
unlike the selfish personal love whose cravings are for material desires.
our human emotions exist over a spectrum from that of material to that of the spirit,
and it is your choice to follow the glamour or the compassion,
i would say the glamour is dangerous, selfish and restrictive of individual growth, as well as your cause of pain,
yet, the bliss is available to all of us if we carry the proper intent

God is love. When we love others, we love God. If you notice, the sins that are described all lack love. Sin then could be the absence of love. There are other emotions that we mistake for love at times like lust. But God is love.

Love isn’t it one of the most beautiful things? Love can be so inspiring, it can fill the body and soul with an energy that resonates and transcends beyond your physical being.

Love is the basis of so many other emotions. When you think of happiness, joyfulness, peacefulness, etc. you tend to experience or feel those those specific emotions. But when you think of Love you feel or experience the subsequent emotions of happiness, joyfulness, peacefulness, etc.

I think God created Love because of its power to overcome. To overcome pain and suffering, to overcome hatred, selfishness, rage, or any other ill conceived thought or emotion that man can identify with.

Love can move the world…use your Love today, tomorrow, and always to move the world.

1) Love a dangerous emotion? Danger implies fear, in fear human nature is fight or flee. 2) Experiences in the emotion love? Too many! The lesson being my hardest! To love self!

When I finally "got it" within my heart my intent to love self was to release all attachments. Including people, and knowledge.

It was that moment of realizing it's beautiful to be alone. It's ok. All that is, all that I clung to were right there with me. In "Paradise" Not a human visual, a state of no mind. The bliss of being home, "the garden" with my memories, of all.

Of all the songs ever written, love is certainly the #1 subject. I guess we all wonder about all the forms of love, and even wonder at it- how each form is different, how even it differs from one person we love to another.

We often turn to I Cor 13 as a Bible verse that talks about "perfect" love. You can Google it if you want to read it- some Bibles call it charity, but I prefer Love.

You know what I think? I think, at the beginning of time, God was one lonely Dude. So, with one Great Breath, He breathed the Big Bang, all with the hope and Patience that somehow, somewhere, ,someday, somebody would Love Him back. Maybe I am silly, but since God IS Love, then it only makes sense that He would want to receive Love in return.

Let's look at Psalm 23--written by a Shepherd, who wrote about His Love for this God in simple, shepherdly terms:

alt text

1The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of ddeath, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

David wrote this about what He believed God would and did do for Him. It is a beautiful testimony for love. Do you believe that your best friend will carry you out of harm's way? David did. That is faith and great trust and yes, Love. What more can you ask? Do you believe that even in your darkest days, you will be led out into the light because of Love? David did. Take this poem in, and digest it. Then you will understand Love just the way I do.

Love is many things, but its Highest form is Trust...Complete and Utter Faith!

Blessings, Jai
