In my quest to find the answers to life's biggest questions, the question "What is love?" is perhaps the most difficult to answer because it is so ubiquitous. To answer the question with the statement "love is" just didn't satisfy my hunger to really know and define love.
The reductionist in me had me looking at love under the microscope of life. The visionary in me broadened my view to include all of creation. Everywhere I looked, from the tall to the small, I found love. Yes, love is all there is but what is all there is?
In Glenda Green's book, Love Without End,Jesus Speaks, she talks about adamantine particles, the fundamental particles of creation that respond only to love. These particles are smaller than atoms, or protons, neutrons, and electrons. Perhaps they are even smaller than bosons and leptons. Whatever their size, if they respond only to love, then love commands the universe.
Moving up to the atomic level, hydrogen is the simplest of all elements, containing only one proton and one electron. It is the most abundant element in the universe. Our sun is mostly hydrogen. Some researchers have even speculated that hydrogen is the memory stick that plugs into the akashic records. It is because of hydrogen bonding that DNA is able to "unzip" and replicate.
At the molecular level, lets look at water because of its association with emotion and its ubiquity. Our bodies are approximately 70-80% water similar to earth. Water is made of mostly hydrogen and it is hydrogen bonding that is responsible for many of water's unique characteristics, including its ability to structure itself.
Researchers have found that water responds to love. Dr. Emoto's ground-breaking research with water shows us that water holds memory. He and other researchers discovered that the emotion of love structures water and forms a beautiful crystal when flash-frozen. Structured water, as I am writing about in my second book, is the key to the transference of information throughout the body. Love our water, love ourselves is one obvious conclusion from this research. What does it mean to "love" our water or anything else for that matter? I am back to where I started. What is love?
Love is an emotion. We innately know what love feels like to give it and receive it. Since emotions are energy in motion, and all energy has a frequency, then love must be a particular frequency. Once again, our words are literal; the term "good vibrations" is often associated with love. Love is a good vibration.
According to Dan Winter, the feeling of love is the result of the harmonic wave pattern created in the heart, which in turn affects how tightly your DNA helix is braided. A magnetic X, as he calls it, is produced in your heart's electromagnetic field. The magnetic rush you feel when you are close to someone you love is the result of this magnetic X. Your DNA braids its strands according to the golden mean ratio and this produces the emotion of bliss. I would say that is a good vibration.
Drunvalo Melchizedek says love is the golden mean ratio - the harmonic expression of nature. Perhaps Karen Carpenter was right. "...all you get from love is a love song." The harmony of love permeates all of creation creating a symphony whose purpose is to blissfully give praise to the grand architect of it all.
How do you define love? Please share your definitions of love and while you are it, please send love to water. Water is so important to all of life. My love to water and to you, my readers! Thank you.
