What is Love?

By Rhys Thomas

What is love? And why is it such a driving, healing force in our lives?

Before we are born we are “one” with our soulmate(s) in the Garden of Eden. We live “in love.” The soul is love.

To come to planet Earth, we separate from our soulmate(s) and forever crave that level of connection more than anything else.

We go through our lives desiring an “exclusive soul love” that can often only be glimpsed in moments or epiphanies or in surrendered ecstasy… until one day, after many rejections, we give up on that need. 

But the desire for love never goes away — we just cover it with work and parenthood. It never works though. If you want any chance at true happiness, you must acknowledge this soul-deep need for loving connection, and ask for what you really want deep in your heart.

So… what is love?

  • The most misunderstood concept in the world
  • Not an emotion
  • The essence of who and what we are is love
  • The creative force of gravity holding us together is love
  • We desire love more than anything else because all we are is love
  • Soul Consciousness is love
  • The next evolution of humanity will be into the heart

Choose love, and you’ll discover unimaginable bliss within your own heart.
