Love is a biological necessity, a force operating to one degree or another in all biological life. Without love there is no physical commitment to life, no psychic hold. Love exists whether or not it is sexually expressed, though it is natural for... love to seek expression. Love implies loyalty. It implies commitment.
Love is naturally creative and explorative - that is, you want to creatively explore the aspects of the beloved one. Even characteristics that would otherwise appear as faults attain a certain loving significance. They are accepted - seen, and yet they make no difference. Because they are still attributes of the beloved one, even the seeming faults are redeemed. The beloved attains prominence over all others.
To love someone, you must appreciate how that person differs from yourself and from others. You must hold that person in mind so that to some extent love is a kind of meditation - a loving focus upon another individual. Once you experience that kind of love you can translate it into other terms. The love spreads out, expands, so that you can then see others in love's light.
So, we start by loving ourselves and understanding that we are valid beings, not to be humiliated or put down. Then we can expand that idea to include others, offering them the same understanding that we allow ourselves. We can rejoice in the unique nature of each individual, and value their differences without judgement. We may start with one special, chosen 'loved one', and develop a deep, long lasting relationship where all aspects of love are experienced. But love is not restricted, it has no boundaries and cannot be confined by our limited concepts of institutionalised relationships.

Actually Jane Roberts channeled it...from Seth! If I could write like this, wouldn't be here! ):-)
