I was curious about this article, because it seems to me that English does have more than one word for love - devotion, loving-kindness, affection, appreciation, fondness, adoration.... is it just me? But then I began to wonder, if Love is the substance and energy of the Ground of All Possible Being, i.e. the universe, then maybe everything has the capacity to be a synonym for love depending on our perspective and intention. Perhaps today, when I speak with my husband, my students, the clerks at the grocery story, my dogs.. I'll use my fancy words, but I'll know I'm really saying love, love, love, love, and love.
