Ritual today felt very uplifting. It started with me feeling stressed after work, but then became a natural high.
I have been thinking of the different types of loves, and how casually we use the word. In social psych we discussed 7 different types of love, which the Greeks all had words for. But we have one. And we also have a way of talking about our favourite celebrities, favourite colours, or even favourite toilet paper with this blanket term. Does the word then lose meaning? I certainly find the new age “Love and Light”, especially when it comes with rejection, to be super insulting. I was wondering if there is one of these 7 types of love that I should be focusing on. Is it the nurturing parent love? Platonic love? Romantic love? Consummate Love? The god-like love “energy? any of these other loves? It’s hard to say. In a way, all of them. Would my condition be any different if we had a better language to describe love? I don’t know.
But, I have made it half way through the challenge.
