Love is not a tangible object, rather it’s a concept that is experienced on a much deeper and more inner level. Love encompasses an incredible range of positive and negative emotional and psychological states, from the purest form of idealism, the highest personal fondness, to the easiest, most enjoyable past time. When you experience love as a whole feeling, you are more in touch with your inner self and more connected to your internal Source. Your relationships and all of your interactions with other people are deeply impacted by your sense of love.
In the main article, we looked at three different forms of love. Bhakti, which are essentially worship of God; Japa, which are the practice of meditation; and Kirtan, which are basically yoga. All three of these have the main objective of drawing you closer to your Source. They also allow you to channel all of your energy into them, manifesting in different ways. Bhakti and Japa can be practiced individually and can even lead to a higher spiritual level, if practiced properly.
When I talk about “love” in the main article, I really mean a certain kind of love, a higher form of worship. It is not lust or a simple, natural, human characteristic. This is why love is often considered as a more human trait than what it actually is. According to my higher self, human beings are not naturally able to express love nor are they naturally capable of receiving or giving love.
The human being has a certain biological programming that allows for a certain amount of basic emotions, such as love, anger, hate, desire, envy, and sexuality. In the new testament, God has placed certain other emotions, such as trust, hope, and eros, as well as certain other instincts, into human beings. If a person is lacking in one of those emotions, then they cannot fully experience the love of God or the divine. One of the most common problems that human beings face is not being able to express or receive love from another human being. When this happens, there is usually some kind of internal conflict within a person, as they are unable to fully experience a form of love that God has placed within them.
As previously mentioned, love is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. It is necessary for each human being to have an opportunity to experience this natural force, whether it is through erotic love, sexual desire, friendship, romance, or any other human bonding process that allows two people to become closer, sharing emotions, and building a strong foundation for a possible relationship. When this natural force is weak or missing, humans tend to experience difficulty experiencing emotional bonding, building relationships, and having fulfilling and meaningful relationships. When we go through a long period of low romantic interest, it becomes very easy for relationships to fall apart and for people to start focusing on their own needs, rather than spending time building meaningful relationships with others.
The second principle of love is associated with the act of giving affection. Human beings are naturally attracted to others who love us back, and when one individual expresses their love for another, they tend to give that person affection in return. When we are in a romantic relationship, we may find that this practice can get a little bit out of hand. There may be times when we feel the need to express our affection for someone and end up saying something like “You’re such a pain in the neck”, or “You make me sick”. If this kind of behavior continues, then we may begin to see signs of a failing relationship, and this is often a major problem, because the underlying issue of affection is not being addressed.
