Love is not an emotion. Love is will – it’s the will to do whatever it takes to meet your companions needs without a second thought (of course all performed without violating Rule One – self preservation).
I say this because some days you don’t “feel” like loving just as you don’t feel like taking out the trash, paying bills, or even cooking for yourself. It’s the “will” of such that’s powers our actions. To prove my point observe this example:
Feelings are reactions to something that has been experienced or taken place already. It is humanly impossible to “feel” a certain way about something unless it has been experienced. Will is the preemptive acknowledgement that something “will” be executed prior to its conception. Will is also more of a state of mind opposed to chemical cocktails being produced by the brain. How do you like them cookies?
It is that very will that governs the intensity in which we do/view things. This all points back to my strong believe in – mind over matter. Once you have the “will” you have the power. If you “will it” then it will happen.
Well folks, “will” is what I deem to be one of the fundamental dynamics of love. So looking at it “my” way – who do you love?
