My philosophical questions for awhile...

love...what is love...an emotion evoked by the release of hormones in the brain and the rest of the nervous system? is it a feeling of ecstacy when one is deeply connected to another? is it both? we take love for...granted. we never conteplate what an amazing gift love is...and how it is still a burden on our hearts. the search for love is an eternal trek taking us through life. is that life's true meaning? to learn the depths and enigmatic properties of love? why do we risk everything for that one person? why are we overjoyed when they walk into the room? why does the feeling grow stronger when they are away? i think...it is time...that we tried to understand why we love. to understand that love is a chemical process and a feeling of ecstacy because of this glorious process. journeys are meant to test our wits and lead us to learn a valuable lesson. given a journey, there is a goal. what is at the end of life's journey? an understanding? what if we don't achieve this understanding? will we repeat this journey? repeat it until we learn why? why we love? why we hate? why we choose to take one path and not the other? why we know what we know? what happens when we finally do understand? do we achieve a higher form of being so as to live in a utopia where love and truth reign? there's only one way to find out...just...live.....
