Love is the Emotional, Feeling Part of Our Humanity

"Love encompasses a multitude of emotions and feelings. These lesser emotions are offshoots of the primary emotion and have lesser capacity to function as an overall concept. Some of them are gladness, happiness, joy, enchantment, ecstasy, beatitude, and many, many others. All are essentially expressions of love.
Love can cause a rush of blood through your body that suddenly makes you feel like you are enveloped in the cocoon of a warm fuzzy. It is peaceful, sweet, loving and joyful. It is indeed health. It is the shining white light of spiritual protection.
Love dilates your blood vessels and carries vital oxygen to each and every cell in your body. It helps you grow in body, mind and spirit.
Love broadens your concept of humanity. It makes friends out of enemies. It opens your heart and allows your spirit to bloom as a rose will bloom in the spring. It makes work play. It gives the mind freedom to soar. Love is life. It is spirit, it is hope. It truly is the nectar of the Gods.
It is the appreciation of and joining of love that controls the evolution of the soul. Love's reality is the spirit of the body and mind. Without love we have no spirit, no hope, no joy for the living. We have severe damage to one of our integrated parts.
The spirit - the infinite energy- the God part of us, is also the happy, joyful loving part of us. It is the emotional, feeling part of our humanity."
