FB Love commentary

 

  •  

    Love is not an idea. It is a state of being. It is not intellectually discernible. It is a matter of the heart not a matter of the brain, so don’t think about love,….. love!

        Gillian Moody To love is to take a risk. Some people when they have been hurt avoid really loving again. What a shame.

        Michael Rebel I don’t agree. I think to love guarantees moments of pain. That the pain is associated with brain making decisions out of ignorant fear. Thus forcing the heart to go unheard.The heart wants to approach and the brain shies away.

        I agree that the mind can make the decision not to go there again.
        I dont however agree that the fear attached to the mind is always ignorant. Memory can hold pictures of rejection and the pain that this involves. The fear can sometimes be about going through that pain again. However, I feel we miss out if we remain closed.See More

        Michael Rebel I believe this fear is about the past and not the now. It is more apt to be about your mother than the person standing in front of you.

        Gillian Moody Maybe an accumulation of all past hurts.

        Owaissa Vanderberg Love is forgiveness… which moves to gratitude for ALL experiences. Then Love is a light that shines from within. Romantic love? Just a crazy chemical that has just about NOTHING to do with the head and everything to do with hormones!! lol

        Michael Rebel Gillian for sure but your heart is saying “learn how” not “don’t do it”
        your brain is what remembers the fear.

        I am not disagreeing with you Michael I agree fear comes from the mind and thinking too much. Fear may have everything to do with your “Mother” but I am saying that it also has a lot to do with each experience that verifys the last and that is what says “Don’t do it.”
        This is when we can cut ourselves off from feeling.
        I know that love is a choice too. A choice to accept the pain sometimes along with the good. This to me is going through the fear.

        Gillian Moody Michael, I appreciate that your comments always make me think. I am a thinker and I love debate. My challenge in life has been to get more in touch with feeling.

        Michael Mullins i’m with owaissa – love is a choice (and thus intellectually discernible). falling IN love is a feeling, neurochemically driven, whether by hormones or other potent substances.

        Michael Rebel Since the brain has no sensory cells how can it understand a feeling. It can only recite what it has been programed to believe.

        seems to me that the brain can certainly discern the fact that what it is directly connected to (the body) IS feeling something.
        saying that love is only the feeling of being in love is tantamount to abrogating responsibility for ones actions – sort of like flip wilson inanely saying “the devil MADE me do it”.See More

        ‎”It can only recite what it has been programed to believe.”
        I dont agree! I think the mind is capable of thinking outside the box that is programmed. As for Love? Love, I feel, can only be seperate from thinking in our spiritual home or through meditation. Normally when you have a thought a feeling and bodily sensation go with it. Mind, body and feeling are inextricably linked.See More

        What we are discussing has been discussed before.
        The philosophical discussion regarding love logically begins with questions concerning its nature. This implies that love has a “nature,” a proposition that some may oppose arguing that love is conceptually irrational, in the sense that it cannot be described in rational or meaningful propositions. For such critics, who are presenting a metaphysical and epistemological argument, love may be an ejection of emotions that defy rational examination; on the other hand, some languages, such as Papuan do not even admit the concept, which negates the possibility of a philosophical examination. In English, the word “love,” which is derived from Germanic forms of the Sanskrit lubh (desire), is broadly defined and hence imprecise, which generates first order problems of definition and meaning, which are resolved to some extent by the reference to the Greek terms, eros, philia, and agape.See More

        Cassie Selleck And all of that brings me to the conclusion that Michael is right. I would add that love is a verb…it’s what you DO.

        A good argument Michael. So what is the truth?
        The truth to me (and I mean only me here) Love is a heart leap, that amkes me smile from ear to ear. It’s connecting with another on a level that goes deeper than everyday. It’s a recognition and appreciation of a kind, comforting word or sentence, that somehow I can see and feel is heartfelt. It’s the knowledge that someone has stood by me through good and bad times. It’s the wonder of a childs face at discovering something new, that wakes something in me that recognises this. It’s a hope in my heart that someone , be it God, a greater being than me is holding me in their hand, helping me a long the way. It’s knowing a bond so strong, that has known anger and disappointment all it’s life, only to find when you lose that bond, it was actually a very strong love. I dont care what it means to anyone else to me I name it love.See More

        Michael Rebel The main point to this original provocative statement is for each person to their own their own conclusion about love, knowing that it is not intellectually transmitted but felt within the heart. it is not about words or ideas it is about personal expression.
