Love Spiritual Principle
Love may very well be the most misused and abused word in the English language. Most of the Romance languages have two or three words that describe different kinds of love.
Sanskrit has 96 words for love. Many languages have words that have no English translation – other than love.
The best definition I’ve seen comes from Paulo Coelho in his novel The Zahir: A Novel of Obsession: Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.
That’s a pretty full definition – but I’d add a few more couplets: When we allow it, it expands us. When we allow ourselves to feel it, it dissolves us. When we swim in its river, it delivers us to the shores of bliss.
