I googled several things this morning.... 1. Love, yea I know I have a habit of finding things almost impossible to define or touch. Its interesting how the definitions range from sacrificial to hormonal. It the one constant in the world to make people sick, happy, angry, insane, confused, psychotic, and even take their lives over. Other than Religon and Politics, Love is probably the most troublesome word to be invented. Following are a few examples of definitons.....
Agape - the term was used by the early Christians (Greek to be specific, as the word is of Greek origin) to refer to an unconditional acceptance, favour and affinity toward a person. Also said to be a universal, as well as unconditional, unity with a person that aims for fulfillment of the other.
