What is Love?
In his book ‘The Road Less Traveled”, M.Scott Peck differentiates between ‘love’ and being ‘in love’:
“I define love thus: The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth. Love is an act of the will – namely, both an intention and an action”. “Of all the misconceptions about love the most powerful and pervasive is believing that ‘falling in love’ is love or at least one of the manifestations of love”. “We fall in love when we are conscientiously or unconsciously sexually motivated”.
