The science of falling in love

​A FOOL IN LOVE

No one can fall in love if he is even partially satisfied with what he has or who he is. The experience of falling in love originates in an extreme depression, an inability to find something that has value in everyday life. The “symptom” of the predisposition to fall in love is not the conscious desire to do so, the intense desire to enrich our lives; it is the profound sense of being worthless and of having nothing that is valuable and the shame of not having it. . . . 

For this reason, falling in love occurs more frequently among young people, since they are profoundly uncertain, unsure of their worth, and often ashamed of themselves. The same thing applies to people of other ages when they lose something in their lives— when their youth ends or when they start to grow old.

  1. This is to be viewed from two angles, that’s why I brought it up. There are two dimensions in life: that which spiritually asleep humans operate from, and the other is that of enlightenment where even love for others does not arise because all has been transformed into pure, unconditional and irreproachable love where equanimity reigns supreme. I wish you can grasp this brief exposition.

  2. See it as an exercise of Seeing the excellence of the self through the other/object of love -an ideation which can happen when one forgets its/his/hers true nature and assigns it to an other – whereas the assigned beauty in truth is an excellence of the self -one for all.
    So it can be an experiment/ yoga-means – once realized as grace – a path full of challenges : that’s why one must be prepared for this by yoga/s , learning not to be identified through the moments of separation(suffering) and dissolution of separation _ the awareness of which is yoga that expands by sincere focus.
