Why Do We Love?

Ayn Rand, the author and philosopher who wrote Fountainheads and Atlas Shrugged, once said, “You love people for their virtues!” But I say; “Those virtues may not do anything for you emotionally!” Others may say, “I love him for what he does for me.” But then you may feel guilty because you do not do too much for him.

The altruistic love says, “I love people for what I can do for them.” But then your inner self will say, "What about me?"
So after analyzing every aspect of love, I came up with my own version. Here it is; “Love is the communion of two souls in harmony complementing each other on their journey to perfection.” Yes, we have to be very careful about love. That is why we need more education in this subject. Not just any education…but an education which has been tested and proven to be correct. An education which will bring the desired results.

Most of the problems in the divorce epidemic are because people love blindly. This kind of love is almost sure to fade away in years to come. Here is an example; I appreciate the book The Prophet. But when Kahlil Gibran talks about love, I disagree with him. From his book he says; “When Love beckons to you, follow him, though his days are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you, yield to him, though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you, believe in him. Though his voice may shatter your dreams, as the North wind lays waste the garden.”

In other words, he says you should follow this emotion of love blindly, because your emotion is cleverer than your reasoning. I agree with the passion that Kahlil describes here, and I truly believe true love will bring this kind of passion to bear fruit. But there is also the possibility that passion may occur within the relationship, yet the people are not compatible.

In that case, the passion will end up being destructive and lay waste the garden of your finances, your emotions, and possibly your mind, for years to come. We have an obligation to want it all! I want the emotion of love, but I also want the reasoning that goes with the analysis of the emotion. Once the two agree (the emotion with the reasoning), then we will know that the foundation of our relationship is strong and unbreakable.

    your words are good, but somewhat confusing, if you can explain them better, it would be great.
