What is That Thing Called Love?
One of the most used and least understood words in the English language has to be love. Over the centuries more atrocities, more mayhem and torture, more murders have been conceived and committed under the banner of love than in the name of any other concept. For love, nations have attacked nations, families attacked families, all seeking to force their interpretation of the word on others, all thinking that they’re right. Their "rightness," of course, makes everyone else "wrong." Enforced and reinforced by the club, the axe, sword, arrow, and ultimately the gun and the bomb, love became justification for any act by the "right" toward the "wrong."
What really is that thing called love? The word love is truly an abstraction; having no meaning in itself, it is given meaning only when we attach something to it. The Greeks have many definitions for love; agape, meaning spiritual love; philos, brotherly love; eros, erotic or romantic love. But the definitions, too, are abstractions; they add little meaning to the word. Just what does philos mean? It’s certainly a word for one aspect of love. Eros is still another of the many facets of love. But what is love?
To arrive at an answer, let us rely on a useful and frequently invoked technique of Silva Mental Dynamics, polarization. The polarization technique is based on one of the fundamental principles of Mental Dynamics — indeed, one of the basic principles of life (see Chapter 4, "The Seven Mighty Principles"). According to the principle of polarity, all things have an opposite and opposites are the same in nature, differing only by degree.
Applying that principle to help understand the nature of love, imagine a gauge ¯ a straight line, similar to a yardstick. On the left end of the line is the negative, on the extreme right is the positive, and in the center is the neutral area. Let us call love a viewpoint, and examine the word from that perspective. On each end of our gauge we’ll put the word viewpoint. On the positive end we now have a positive viewpoint, and on the opposite end a negative viewpoint. Above the positive viewpoint we’ll put the word love; and above the negative viewpoint we’ll put the word hate.
Define love as a positive viewpoint, and you find that love and hate differ only by degree. Let’s see if it fits.
Imagine a person who is a recipient of absolute love. Absolute love would be on the farthest right end of the scale where there are no negatives, only positives. You would view this person from a purely positive viewpoint. You would find only the positives in this individual, no negatives. Whatever this person does, says, or acts like, is seen in a positive light. You view everything about this person with all of the aspects of love.
Few people are the recipients of love to this degree, with perhaps two exceptions. There is an entire class of people who tend to receive love of this magnitude — babies. Parents and grandparents see only the positives in their babies and grandbabies, at least until the age of six months.
Sometimes young couples, too, respond to one another with the same extreme degree of love, seeing only the positive aspects of one another. Whatever the other person does or says is wonderful; whatever the other person looks like, he or she is seen as handsome or beautiful. Then time goes by and attitudes change. The viewpoint moves a bit to the left, toward the center of the scale, from the 100 percent mark to the 90 or 80, and the two begin to see what was always there but was overlooked in their starry-eyed, exclusively positive viewpoint. Love diminishes and may settle in to a nice comfortable level at which each person sees the negative aspects of the other but accepts them. They may try to change one another. They may try to avoid one another at certain times of the day, month, or year. But they have accepted one another and so they are content and happy with each other.
