On love and loving

When I think about love, I can't help but wonder how much of what I feel is pre-programmed by social values I aquired while growing up. Nah... not all of it is social... I know that for a fact. Genetic? Who knows?


Love is a world... made of two.
Love is validating each other.
You recognize the source of potential within the other person as something real. Something true. Potential that can and will happen.
That potential is validated. Which in turn validates your potential.
We make the other person feel good, as they do so with us. We make them know that they are unique, capable of feeling good, and of making others feel good too.
We both make the other person feel like a god.
Love is the creation and nurturing of two gods...
And who shall a god frolic with?

Another god.
