Functionally Speaking…(Love)

My original text stated that Love, was one of the key talking points of this blog.  My question to you is what can love do for you?  Better yet; what can we do for love?  Through my actions as well as my thoughts; I have come to an understanding that love, though often attempted to be quantified, still remains largely misunderstood.

 Individually speaking, I will always seek logic in times of uncertainty; however, I remain unyielding to the light inside…the same light that binds us all.  It is the unknown certainty of love versus the overwhelming physiological proof that continually weigh its very notion in the balance between positive and negative, good and evil…one might even go so far as to say life and death.

In a world where people fight and die everyday for what they believe they love; I ask you where does the line actually fall?  Where does one draw that line…is that line even a reality…?

Scientists tend to contextualize the very idea of love…we’ve all heard the explanations dealing with chemicals that release in the brain that can be directly correlated with love.  Trouble is…that particular chemical is not registered in any actual capacity…meaning it is not, to date, on any known periodic table…at least not one that I have come across lately.

So we come full circle in the understanding that love exists without the scientific proof…I mean, do we really need anymore proof that the feelings we have for those that we love…?  Personally, I don’t think so but by gaining a true understanding of what we want, need and already have can align the body, mind and soul in a manner that can seek out love while filtering through the heartache that is sure to come…

There is one thing that scientists agree upon and that is the fact that love exists.  One must understand that it can, at best, be quantified as a chemically induced state of mind resulting in actions and/or feelings toward other individuals with countless catalysts that speak to their development.  If something can be quantified in terms of energy…which all living things can…then it can be said that love is as simple as a transference of positive energy…just as there are different degrees of transference; there are numerous degrees of love.

If it is safe to say that all living things can be quantified or explained in terms of energy; then wouldn’t it be safe to say that focusing energy with the intent on projecting specific signals be just as quantifiable?  In any case, it is safe to say that love is a representation of what hangs in the balance…pure, strong yet vulnerable to manipulation.  The fact that it hangs in the balance between reality and the conscious perception there of…will always be sufficient amount of fuel to ignite the debate of the unknown.

I ask you… what does the unknown truly mean to you and do you think that it is largely feared out of adolescent negligence or merely appropriated as such…?  I’m inclined to believe that the answer in right in front of you at all times…I guess the real question is whether or not we are ready to open our eyes…?

About Starchild

Grew up in the country... nothing like a small town. Luckily I have been able to enjoy overseas travel as well which has given me a unique perspective on life, love, and the endless pursuit of happiness. As much as I love the country; I love the allure and the bright lights of the city as well. Trouble is... I always come full circle to realize that a simplistic approach to complexity will always yield the most well rounded approach and the most complete understanding there of. Been through a lot at a young age and as a result I find myself in and out of hot water when engaging in conversation with others of all walks of life... I seek out the slivers of comfort in any and every uncomfortable situation I can find... I find that it yields the most interesting conversation which, in turn, leads to the most interesting people... After all, everything I have ever learned I learned the hard way via the souls that I met along my journey of self discovery! I wouldn't have it any other way!

  1. In regard to the conversation about the unknown and the fear of it… Bob Proctor once said “All the knowledge of the Universe is within us. You never “get” anything. You merely become aware of what you’ve already got.” Going back to the endless conversation about how we only make use of about 40% of our DNA coding and only see 10% of the frequencies and information that surounds us… The more we attempt to expand, the more aware of the knowledge we become, as seekers of that knowledge. Thus, fear of the unknown is senseless..

    In regard to love. What is so difficult about the feeling and experience of love is that, although we try so hard to compare and relate…describing the experience of love is like describing the experience of a color. How am I sure anyone else is experiencing love the same way I am. We can try to put it into words, express it to others, and act like we know what we want from it, but it is so much greater a subject. Why else would so many songs be written about it, or so many advertising ads be based on it, not to mention all the romantic comedies and dramas. It truly is the single most important emotion. So perhaps something so grand, something so beyond our understanding, cannot possibly have a finite definition with the fraction of consciousness that we possess, at this time. Perhaps all this is for practice, to grow and achieve a greater understanding and we shouldn’t try so hard to define it, look for it, or fight for it, or convince others. Maybe, at this point, we should just let it be, appreciate it and let it exist as is and stop battling over it.

    true…i completely agree that the unnecessary battles are futile at best. It raises the question as to whether or not love could possibly be the key to understanding the unknown or at the very least providing some much needed insight.
