What Is Love?

what is love
Oh, is it love?

A pleasurable feeling? A good deed benefitting someone? A phenomenal experience?

All of it? Something else all together? Can love last? And does it matter?

Yes, it matters because love makes the world go ’round.

And that is a rather complicated situation.

Hi, Tom Froehlich here. I am a graduate of the Unification Theological Seminary (Class of ’83) and am infatuated with musing about the phenomenon of lasting erotic love in human affairs.

And does love last?

Nope, unfortunately, not by itself.

It isn’t love’s fault, though. It’s just that humans – us, you and me – are so flawed. Just look at yourself as well! Who and what are you? Do you have what it takes to make real love last between you and your significant other?

Many folks find hope in believing that love originates and emanates from God. I am not convinced. Having examined myself and my beliefs for decades, I still ponder. Flawed or not, do I not have the nobility to love of my own?

So, that is what I am musing about: what is desire, what is a caring love, what is an erotic love, and who and what are we humans in this regard.

How do you know it’s love and not just liking or lusting?

Are caring, love, and eros not the same?

Falling in love seems to be a rather involuntary event, but making love last is certainly not.
