I'm sure we have all felt the love for another person before. This may be a parental, friendship, or relationship type love. We have all felt love, most likely, in some form. I would like to touch on a deeper concept of love and my observation of how others view love. I do not wish to contradict any persons beliefs in the process.

In most cases, it seems, people would think of love as an emotional feeling shown towards another person (usually only family and close friends). If you were to ask someone to try to explain love without explaining an emotional feeling, most people would not know what to say. There are a few who would say it can not be explained outside of emotional context. The best answer I would expect someone to say, is a bond between people, maybe only between a special few people. With questions like these, I do not want to challenge anyone's thoughts on the subject, I only wish everyone to dive a little deeper into the subject and give it more thought.

Now, if I were to ask people if they thought that emotions were temporary, there would be a mix of agreements and disagreements I'm sure. The disagreements most likely coming from the people who view love as an emotion. I believe people have always felt a sense of love, but without thinking on it further, the feeling may present itself as emotion. What if love was a source though? If we actually break it down, we see that temporary emotions come out of the love we feel.

If we ask ourselves what emotions may come out of love, there would be many who say happiness, sadness, excitement, frustration, security, and maybe even vulnerability. However, some of these answers may be out of fear of losing love in their own life, or fear of having none at all. True love, not only between two people, but every living thing as a whole, should only consist of positive emotion. This means the negative emotions must also have a source. I believe all negativity comes from fear. Not to use a corny Star Wars quote, but Yoda was right when he said, "Fear, leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering."

We now have two sources, or energies (love and fear), that we put out through emotions and feelings. With this understanding, love becomes more than an emotion. Love becomes a source of power, a way of life, a physical energy. Love brings out all life and optimism, while also extinguishing any fear we may have had. In the same sense, fear and any negativity that came from it, also changes. Fear becomes an illusion of the mind; a trickster. Fear is a prison we trap ourselves in unnaturally. Fear is a product of man's mind veering from nature. Fear is a chaos, a control, and a warmonger. Love is our life source and our true nature.

To put this concept into a physical and more understandable nature, you could think of an atom. Say an atom, in theory, is a single piece of love energy. I believe the evidence of this is in an atom bomb. This 'theoretical' love energy is split in half, creating a bomb that has the potential to crack the surface of the planet... The atom bomb was created for the exact purposes of fear. The atom makes up everything you see and everything you see has energy. With this most physical understanding, I would say love is literally what we all are and who we all are. Would we even dwell on fear with a mentality closest to nature? Love is our nature and at the base of our very life; it is our life source.

I want everyone to take this to heart. I want everyone to remember their life, their love, and the power of the love we all have. I want to help take the fear away, if even for a moment, and replace it with something more powerful. I want you to remember, and be in check of the energies you're putting into the world. I want to give the unloved, love and the hopeless, hope because we all have the power to change the world.

We are endless power supplies, and we all help power each other. We are all the same, while also being individuals. We share with all of humanity and everything natural on this Earth. I love you all as fellow spirits, and respect the love and consciousness that I share with you all. Look inside of yourself, you will find something greater than anything you thought possible. Fight the fear, it should not exists. Embody the power of love.

Love is indeed a great thing. If only we learned to love our neighbors just like we love ourselves

I believe God is the source of real love, and that rather than just being an emotion, love is an act of the will. God tells us to love one another as he has loved us. The Bible also teaches that perfect love casts out fear. Love and fear cannot exist together. Love can create emotions, but love persists even when emotions no longer drive it.
