What is your definition of "Love"
    #4237129 - 05/30/05 05:16 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Mine would have to be sacrifice.. putting another person other than yourself ahead of your wants/needs..

Describe in one sentence what "love" means to you..

Some mistake their addiction to certain emotions for "love".

In my book, genuine love is non-attached, "existential" respect, unlike the typical fear-based respect, moreso a peace-based respect that isn't exclusive, but inclusive of nothing, therefore everything.

Like the sun, its rays shine equally in all directions... but, of course that doesn't mean that certain places, i.e. people, will never have some cloudy days that temporarily blocks the shine. But that doesn't stop the sun, does it?

Only those who are run and identified by their egoic-masks will blindly follow the contrived notion that pleasures derived from externalities, [read: people, etc.] ought to sustain our illusory sense of happiness, and will forever be swept to and fro by the pendulum of duality-cognition, oscillating between the extremes of pleasure and pain, which is seperated only by the illusion of psychological time and bound by the deep sleep in the dream of thought, or the nightmare of egoic hell.

Sweet Dreams.

Love is a change in the transmission of epinephrine, dopamine and serotonin as possibly a subconscious attraction to the genes we see another person contains.

1. A word used to get a man out of a sticky hole, or indeed into one. 2. A myth created by fairytales, endorsed by movies then destroyed by reality 3. There?s a good chance love will kill you, but perhaps it?s worth dying for.

the ability to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.

My problem with this definition is that it neglects self-love, which is just as important as loving others. I'm not sure I can find a good synonym for love. I think love is a way of seeing someone(or something) as they really are--all the positives and the negatives--and embrace it all with compassion.

love is looking at an imperfect person, perfectly.

Love is knowing someone well - and still loving them in spite of that....
