      difficult questions

      I will try to answer them all..

      Is love a feeling that can come and go? yes it is...but for the same person? I dont know yet. sometimes it is better if you put an end to a love that come and goes,,,,it gives you headache

      Degrees of love...difficult question because when I love, I love to the fullest

      When is love enough..when you start to love the other one more than yourself...

      yes, it can come and go.  making the statement of a thin line between love and hate true.  to me degrees of love is you like someone first, which might be a must.  and as time goes on depending what both people want, and how you spend your time love can come.  love is enough, when you feel you don't need or want anything or anyone else.

      both, although actions are very powerful, and should not contradict your words. (if you say "I love you", for example, they are just empty words unless loving actions accompany them).

      Love is All in All. Day and night the Universe sings and bends in adoration, because of this Force, and the great Seers - men and women of God - swoon and dance in rhapsody because of Its Delight.

      It is the same Source or Power which produces the Buddha or Krishna or Christ, which acts in an through the heart of the paramour and his sweetheart. It is all a matter of degrees. Again in its highest form, it is not bound by attachments, bargaining and give and take, like we get in human love.

      Finally, you will find it in words, too. How else can the great Ones communicate this Beauty other than to sing for us in psalms, aphorisms, beatitudes, sutras, sloka's and the like?

      I bid you much Love today, by Sweet. God speed!

      Love is an emotion/feeling.

      Like all emotions and feelings they can come and go.
      No one feels positive, happy, angry, or sad 24/7. Sometimes you can love a person but feel anger towards them. In other instances people do fall "out of love" breakup or get divorced.
      There are no "guarantees" how you feel about someone today will be the same year or 10 years from now. It's not uncommon to hear someone say I (was) "in love" with him or her.

    Love can come and go. There are countless degrees of love, from loving a peice of cake, or your brother or sister, your best friend or mother, a stranger you never met but see they need help, you love them enough to do something about it, loving a pet or a good book, or the kind of love that makes you wild and crazy, you think you could fly when the one you love is near or stop breathing when they are gone. Love can move mountains or destroy you. To have it last, it is never enough on it own.

    Pure love has no beginning and no end.
    Your perception of love can vacillate as it is acted on with irregularities by your imagination. Also, the perception of love can change according to your present need for love.
    In the purest sense of love, it is grace and giving without expectations. In the romantic sense, love can feel like a roller coaster-- but if there is a purer love embodied within it, the wheels of the coaster never leave the track and the ride never truly ends.

    Love=Value

    We "love" things that we value.  It is displayed through actions.  Words are meaningless without action.

    Love is not a feeling. Love is a choice.
    And yes, there are many levels of love.
    The Apostle Paul sums it up in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

    "Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails......"  (From the NKJV)

      This is a great post, though I don't entirely agree that love is a choice. I think you can allow yourself to be open to it, but I think "real" love is something that just happens.

        I think that love *is* a choice. It is a choice because it is both feeling (emotion) and action. The act of loving someone is fully your choice; whether or not you want to be sure that they feel the love you are offering. It is not enough to have emotion without action when it comes to love. People want to feel like they matter to someone, and words can be emtpy sounds when a touch or a hug could speak volumes. However, it is one's choice to offer that physical connection. Don't love someone? Don't give them something that speaks love to them. If you do love someone, you make the decision to show it.
        Of course, love can also be a one-way street. I love chocolate, but it doesn't seem to love me back. So I take what I can get, eat all I want, and suffer the consequences knowing that my choice to love it is not returned by the chocolate...otherwise it would not end up on my thighs. smile

    Love is a connection, a bond like none other that is expressed in ways no one outside of that bond can ever understand!

    The title of your post hits it perfectly. Love IS an action word. And for any love to be true both parties have to be willing to let go. Which means be honest with your true feelings and wants. Be willing to open your heart to hurt. And be willing and ready to be swept up in the romance - when it's right, it's a fun ride.

    Love is a beautiful illusion... a vibrancy which erects from within our oun person... there are many levels and the more we love ourselves the more we can love others...

    unconditiional, reverent love, is my plight.

    Married over seventeen years.  I do know this about relationships.  There cannot be a 50/50 relationship.  When in a relationship it must be 100% from both individuals.  There is no "half me half you".  This mindset is yet another example of pride within oneself and must eventually be disolved in order to see the full potential of a relationship.

    Love is the label for a feeling. Like all feelings, it is spontaneous and not subject to direct control by the person experiencing it. The person who experiences the feeling is the one who loves. The object of the love may or may not experience anything. May not even exist.

    I believe that you can look at this two ways.
    You can love something or someone which is where the meaning of "love" is an intense feeling of deep affection or fondness for a person or a thing, or a great liking for the same.
    or you can be "in love" You have a much deeper feeling of affection, that you can't bear to be away from a person for any length of time. You constantly are thinking about them, what they are doing and everything about them. You give your love to a person unconditionally and without worrying about how they look or anything. Beauty is only skin deep, love comes from within. BB

    Lots of people use the word "unconditional" when defining love, which I find a bit worrying to be honest!  It implies that you should carry on loving someone even when they consistently treat you like rubbish.  I don't buy into that one at all.

    To me, love is definitely more about action than words.  If your actions show that you love someone then it has more meaning than just saying "I love you, darling" at regular intervals.  Talk is cheap.

    There are so many kinds of love in my dictionary and have felt many of them.  I don't try to analyze what kind of love it is, just accept it's a form different than the last.  I hope I can experience more in my lifetime, should I be so fortunate big_smile

      you are right lyric, love is an action word. There is a quote I heard at an autism conference...
        “Love depends upon the capacity to reach beneath the surface of persons, to feel and touch the seed of life that is hidden there.
      Love becomes a power when it is capable of evoking that seed and drawing it forth from its hiding place”
                                                      Ira Progoff
      I used it to begin one of my hubs. I love this quote.

    Love from what i understand it to be is an action. When you are with your significant other yes you do think about the emotional connection and perhaps spiritual connection with that person. You think about how you feel with that person also you think of the what that person does to make you feel the way that you do. The actions that that person does to make you feel the way that you do. They say that love can make a person do crazy things. Love is a force far greater then any other and it moves us to unexplained things. Love makes us act diferently then we usally would. love drives us to see the good in people were as others would see the ills in that person. I conclude that love is both an action and a feeling.
