The truth about love lies in its quality and nature, which I believe is magnetism and free will. The attraction by itself doesn’t qualify as love. That is the effect it has. For there to be true love, free will must be abound.
The attraction is the effect, but for love to complete its duality and combine as one, self-sacrifice must be practised. Self-sacrifice arises from free will – a free willingness to be in love and with love. Once this is acknowledged, accepted and practised, true love will manifest. And just like magnets they will be naturally drawn together and naturally bonded. The bond depends on the magnets. Some magnets are stronger than others.
The truth about human love is that there is no special person just for you. We are all like magnets. We are all capable to repel and attract on various levels and intensities. That attraction cannot be qualified as love. When self-sacrifice arises from that free will to be with another because you share a physical, emotional and mental bond, then the law of cause and effect or give and take can take effect. It brings about a marriage and a bond. A duality – The one becomes two and the two become one.
I suppose the quality of the connection depends on the kind of magnet you are.
