The Power of Love
Love is the most liberating of emotions – it’s a promise that once given, will never forgotten. Love is the easiest, and most important gift that you can give to yourself, and the greatest treasure that you can pass to another.
The great poet Maya Angelou talks about the healing power of love when she says “I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now and to be able to love, because that liberates. Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that’s ego. Love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go.'”
There are certainly a lot of factors that drive this emotion, but it’s our brain system that fuels all our decisions. Dr. Helen Fisher has become the world authority on how we find and keep lasting love and what she’ll tell you about your personality will tell you why you fall in love with one person rather than another —-
