Love is One - It Can Be No Other Way.
1. What love is - is beyond the scope of this idea.
No one can teach you the meaning of love.
The only way to know love is to experience it.
Most of what we call love isn't love at all.
What we call love is more akin to a bargaining agreement.
The best way to experience love is to first recognize what love is not.
2. Without Love - Life Is Empty
You may possess all the riches of the world.
You may be a Pulitzer Prize winner.
You may have the best-looking body that has walked the earth.
You may be a great writer, banker, chess player, scientist, or engineer.
You may have access to the greatest technologies ever known to man.
But without love life just feels empty.
The existential questions arise: Which way do you turn? Who/What do you turn to? What's the meaning of my life?
3. Without Love - You are Lost
What could you pursue in the world that is better than experiencing love?
You climb sufficiently.
You climb well.
You climb fast.
You climb all the way to the top.
BUT Your ladder is against the wrong wall.
