What Is Love?
Ok, who knows? If you think you know, wait a few years, and you are bound to have an experience that will change your opinion. Is there anything more important to any of us? Is love synonymous with God? These are questions we tend to ask more when we are young.

As I grew older and had children, love started to change. I thought about what I would do for my kids, who I could help, how I could contribute to the world. What I could give.

Love is how I gauge my spirituality. What else can I relate it to? How else can I aspire to be more god-like and love unconditionally? What is the barometer?
Well, this is what I think about as I get older, what do you think about? How do you evolve, contribute to humanity, find purpose in your life? Do you share these feelings, have similar feelings, think this is a waste of time?
