Is Love Real
Quote:A friend once told me that the only way to have a chance at being unselfishly generous or charitable is to make sure you already have what you need for your self. Accept other peoples help and make efforts to look after yourself or you cannot look after others

True. It is harder to love others if you can't even love yourself. If you learn self-love then you can teach others self-love which is a profound gift of love. We also have to find out who we Really are before we can really love ourself and teach others self-love I think. Loving your ego is ok, but it's missing the point because the ego isn't YOU, so just "loving" your ego might make you go down the wrong path. You are consciousness, the silence between your thoughts.

I started this, and I wasn't talking about this mumbo jumbo world peace love. I was talking about the man and women thing and for all purposes I think it's a sham. I think everything in life is a compromise. It's the nature of things. Ride the middle. Love is too much on one side. This is why in most cases it ends up in shambles or rolls around precariously until both parties are too old, ugly, boring or all to find someone else.

Now love for other humans is somewhat genetic, but social upbringing and lack of diversity create needless divisions.

Love is the X-factor. The one part of the equation that TPTB have not, and can not account for. In the end, it will be what saves us. I am of the opinion that the aggression and violence in the world is an aberation and in our natural state we humans get along very well and are very reluctant to harm one another. Eventually our natural kindness and love will win out... because, well it is the natural order of things. It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature. (butter!)

Dude, it sounds like you might have had a bad rap with the chicks. But it set off a very interesting train of thought for a lot of us. If you've reached the position that it's a sham, I would guess things didn't go well for you. Sorry. We've all been there. I almost killed myself because of a woman, once. It's not always pretty. That's how life is, like this, like that. There is no such thing as "real things", there are only relatively independent subtotalities. Love is on of them. Make of it what you will. But, technically, none of it's real. And go get yourself laid, would you?

The getting laid part isn't the problem. In fact it's one of the things that made me come to this conclusion. It's easy to drag someone home from a pub, I did it last night. Any ways, you summed up what I was thinking. I don't think it's real. I am a little sour because of a break up with my GF of 6 years last july, but It's not the first time. I've just come to realize that it's a social kind of thing. Stories are written about it and so on. I know there is a feeling when you get with someone, but love is more like a disease. It follows the same growth path.
