Love, as you will see, is not lasting. It is far more fleeting that most of us would care to acknowledge. On the upside, though, love is forever renewable.
Even though people experience positive emotions as quite subtle and brief, such moments can ignite powerful forces of growth in your life.
Love blossoms anytime two or more people connect through a shared positive emotion.
Love emerges from a triple resonance: positive emotion resonates with positive emotion, body state resonates with body state, and the desire to care for one another resonates with the same desire to care.
...love belongs not to one person, but to the pair or the group of people who experience it. Love lives between people.
Feeling threatened makes the experience of love impossible. Love requires feeling safe.
Feelings of oneness surface when two or more people sync up and act as one, all moving to the same hidden beat.
Love is a moment of tuning into each other at every level.
Love requires complete presence, you cannot tune into another person while you are distracted.
Infants remind us of all the things that make a moment of deep resonance possible: closeness, trust, openness and safety.
Like babies, we thrive on love. Tuning into each other is vital to our well-being.
Commitment forms the healthy soil from which the seeds of love can grow in a long term relationship. But those seeds must be planted each day, or love will not bloom.
The body absorbs each morsel of love like a glorious delicacy and it grows, just as it does from every nutrient. And like any other nutrient, once love is absorbed and integrated, the body needs more.
The more we tune into others, the more receptive we become to the uplifting effects of love.
