It is a deep connection between two beings, a bond that helps each feel accepted and deeply valued, not only by each other, but by all existence and by all that produces existence and all there is, was, and will be.
Yes, love is a mysterious, living experience that produces good feelings, but it is not a feeling itself. It engenders feelings. It engenders things not yet conceived. Love engenders all.
There is nothing without love; and without love, nothing has true being.
The more we lose ourselves into all that is, the more love we experience. The more we find ourselves within all being, the more we lose ourselves into all that is.
Love is everywhere...even down dead-ends, even within despair, even beyond faith and hope. In fact, love is beyond even itself. It has no end.
