Reader comment on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross & David Kessler's passage ...

When You Don't Choose Love You Choose Fear

 Love is such a tricky thing to define.  I would probably classify it as a state of being rather than an emotion.  It is much more than an emotion.  Things we commonly mistake for love are :affection, desire, lust, familiarity, interest, infatuation, want.  Love is none of these.  Instead these are all different versions of fear.  Love is more like acceptance without expectance.  Love wants nothing, not even to be requited.  Love is not full, it is the emptiness...that's why it is impossible to hold on to.  Love is not a feeling but the purest of motives.
