Because modern humans are alienated from each other and from nature, we seek refuge from our aloneness in romantic love and marriage (pp. 79–81). However, Fromm observes that real love "is not a sentiment which can be easily indulged in by anyone." It is only through developing one's total personality to the capacity of loving one's neighbor with "true humility, courage, faith and discipline" that one attains the capacity to experience real love. This should be considered a rare achievement (p. vii).
Where there is love there is harmony and balance in the world. Where it is absent there is misunderstanding, hatred, fear and jealousy. Love is the force that binds us all and drives us forward. Can you think of one conflict that would not be resolved if love was allowed to rule? Violence and hate end where love begins, they cannot exist or compete with love.
The importance of love in Siddartha Love. Love is a very scary but also beautiful thing that has the ability to make people do things they would never do and change people for the better, not only is love a powerful thing in life, but in the bood Siddartha love is an extremely powerful thing when it comes to Siddartha finding enlightenment. In order to reach enlightenment siddartha had to first overcome suffering, and the suffering he overcame was caused by love. Love in Siddartha is used as an indirect way to find englightement. Whatever you love, weather it be a friend, a spouse, or a family member, will one day leave you.
Romantic love is universal across cultures yet folklore is the most fruitful meaning to the examination of it. However, we can’t really distinguish love from sexual attraction in a such culture because of the influence of Solomon and Shakespeare’s songs, which can push others to use powerful poetic expression to display their feelings, especially in western societies. Also, other imported cultural ideas can be expressing thru folk tales as well as suppressing emotions and moral tales. Consequently, some charming stories implanted in literature or songs in a specific society cannot contribute as manifest or proof that romantic love is valued and experienced by most members in that society. As a result, the validity of “romantic love” is universal relies on the examination at which this declaration has been made.
In a relationship, one has to use their heart to love and care for the other person. Unlike the mind, the heart produces the emotional appeal and chemistry between two people. Contrasting from the heart, the mind can be brainwashed, while the heart will never be influenced by others. Another reason I feel it is better to pursue the heart when one is falling in love, is because the mind sometimes lacks information, leaving one in
When he described their love he said things like, “Than to love and be loved by me”, “But we loved with a love that was more than love”, “My beautiful Annabel Lee”, “But our love it was stronger by far than the love Of those who were older than we” (Pike & Acosta, 2010 p388). You wouldn’t expect a child or a young teenager to express his self that way would you? The sad part about this poem is that Annabel died. Edgar was convinced that the angles did it because of their jealousy of his and Annabel’s love. When Edgar said he wasn’t going to be without Annabel he meant that literally.
I do believe that it is difficult to gain access to the zone of the sacred because it requires an open heart, mind and soul to do it. In this day and age people are very skeptical and need proof rather than just relying on faith. To obtain this goal requires a life style that seems unnatural to human beings. We live in a time where money, material, sex and drugs are our idols. Instead of filling ourselves with God, we are filling ourselves with temporary satisfactions because those things give us immediate pleasure.
No one wants to see their Ex with someone else. Even if, the parting was negligent; there was still a time when treasured memories were created. Even if, you want to be happy for your Ex, sincerely, you cannot. Sometimes, jealousy leads to an function of which Ex will find the first lover, which usually is the one that was dumped that initiates it. The thought of someone else making new memories that pushes aside the one’s you had made is sometimes painful.
Love is a universal feeling and every human on this earth loves someone. It is not necessary that love exists only between opposite sexes but love is there between human kind, between brothers, between sisters, between brothers and sisters, between parents and children, between husband and wife, between neighbours, between nations, etc. But, does being in love can solve problems ? Sometimes it can help people to pass trough difficulty of life, but on the other hand it can create a lot of problems in between two persons. So, love cannot help to solve problems, it can only beautify the outlook that people have on life.
From my point of view, love is more important than money. There are many reasons for that, but most important reasons are listed below. First, money can never buy love; second, love is something that never ends and without love money losses its importance. First of all, money can never be enough to buy love. To be with your family or person that you are in love will give you happiness.
