Have you ever loved someone and it makes no sense? I recently had a client who stated that he loves a woman with such fervor and such frenetic intensity that throughout the session he repeatedly asked me if he were sane. I reassured him, that his sanity was well intact. He struggled to wrap his mind around having profound feelings for another when it felt irrational to his cognitive side. This man could not make logical sense of why he could have such profound and deep feelings for a woman that appeared incongruent with his internal checklist. Have you ever loved another and it makes no sense?
Sometimes love is irrational. Sometimes love makes no sense. Sometimes love does not care about age difference, or ethnicity, or physical criteria, or health, or money; love does not care if it violates your mental checklist. Love is non-discriminatory. Love Just Is. Love expresses itself without our permission, without our conscious consent, and without our logical cognition. Love insists on being acknowledged. Love wants expression.
Love wants a voice – which may be nothing more than a divine whisper. Loving another can never be wrong. Love is the closest emotion to the divine we can express as spiritual beings who temporarily have a human experience. Love is the Alpha and Omega. Love is trump.
