Is Love Really all you Need? Part 3.

19 Nov

This is part of a continuing series on the topic of love- feel free to read Part 1: Love Evolution and Part 2: Where is Love Now.

Ok, now that I got that off my chest, let’s talk about love specifically.

If it possibly true that love had its beginnings as a simple basic feeling, then evolving from accelerating experiences of consciousness and self , then as we progressed as a species and began to build cultures of larger and larger communities our feelings expanded.

We were compelled to do this because of the demand to create and hold connections to other humans in an ever more complicated environment.

Love was seeded in this process and is now a primary component of our most important and critical relationships. It seems that most people would choose love over most everything. Many devote the majority of their lives to it such as seen in parenting, spiritual teaching, and devotional subscribers to religions throughout the world.

Today love is incredibly complicated. Anybody who tells it differently hasn’t experienced it.

Love encompasses many, many attributes such as care, support, patience, affection, regard, attention, kindness, devotion, and sacrifice to mention a few. I imagine everybody can put together their own list of specific attributes and I also imagine that it would be rather extensive. That is my point. Love is not simple.

The Beatles coined the expression in one of their many beautiful and timely songs when they wrote, “Love is all you need.” This phrase would certainly be true if when we all listened to it back in the day it had mentioned all the many components that make up love.

Then, maybe it would be all we need.

For more on love, please read my previous posts here and here. Stay tuned for Part 4: Love, What’s in the Word?
