Is Love Our Most Basic Instinct?

Love

Love is Part of Everyone

Love is innate to all of us. We can regard love along with intelligence, compassion, and courage as our basic instincts. Our basic instincts are not all dark and impure.

There is love in all of us. There is universal love, all-embracing love, in all of us. Love is part of who we are.

Love Has Many Forms

There are many forms of love. Love comes in a variety of flavors and textures. We experience love for family members, love for family, love for animals, and love for the world of nature.

Love Fills Us with Trust and Kindness

Love is the authentic feeling that transcends judgment, hatred, and envy. It embraces one person or a group of people in our hearts with trust and kindness.

Unconditional acceptance and affinity is what love is.
