Love – what a subject! Everybody – I mean everybody talks about love.
In todays’ world one thing is for sure: we all love. And we love a lot.
We love books, we love art, we love clothes, perfumes, cars, our cellphones, all those physical objects that we passionately gather around and those less physical as well: we love music, TV shows, we love hanging out with friends and gossiping; finally: we love other people and, of course, we love making love.
But in this madness… in this never-ending pursuit of searching for more objects and people to love, and to fulfill every second of our lives with new pleasures that love can bring us – we find ourselves more lost, more empty and more doubtful than throughout the entire history of a human kind.
I mean, after all – if we love so much, if we have all this this superior knowledge and experience about love, then how come we always end up hurt and so called “heart-broken?” Why most of the world is running around searching for some genuine affections, that something they could call “a true love”, but yet they never seem to be able to complete their quest? Language, skin color, gender, outward appearance (whether socially claimed beautiful or not) – even status of being rich or poor – it all doesn’t matter when it comes to an overwhelming rate of a failure that we all fall within, while searching for true love. Even divorce rate, in the United States alone – a staggering fifty percent (and that’s only the marriages that ended up approved by the judge) – it cries for one, very important question – that is: “where is the true love?”
So to understand – “what happened?” and – “where is the true love?”, we need to go back in time. We need to take a deep dive into our past – long, long time ago – and navigate through the early years of our lives to uncover how the real love was lost, or perhaps – how it was stolen from us. But before we go there, I think its important to shortly recap a couple of things we’ve covered in other chapters; a knowledge that will help us to better understand all this.
