Love and Relationships
Dictionary definitions of love seem very narrow and constrained, e.g.
“a strong and passionate affection for another person”
“a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend”
“sexual passion or desire”
These definitions and concepts of Love by their very nature localize, restrict and constrict the expression of Love.
A far more workable concept about Love is that Love is the source of all existence, i.e. The whole Universe came into existence as an explosion of Love.
This concept is becoming more widely accepted as the New Philosophy and it works simply because it becomes so much easier when we approach every aspect of living from a point of Love.
Love also encompasses acceptance, compassion, tolerance and forgiveness. At a higher level of Love even those things are no longer an issue.
Approach everything from Love. Your job, your boss, your neighbors, your competitors and yes, as the Bible says “Love your Enemies”, because if everyone, including your enemies, adopted this viewpoint there would no longer be enemies.
