Love of Flowers
"A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love." -Max Muller
In my book Love Is, you will find a section regarding the biological significance upon love. There are very particular sections of the brain that light up when love is present. The things we do, the external stimuli spark these regions of the brain. They also produce various chemicals and reactions. You can read my book to understand more of what I am talking about.
An interesting thing to note about research of the brain relative to love is that scientists are looking at pills that they say romantic love could theoretically be simulated with chemicals. They also say that how to get relationships back in order, you should engage in those behaviors that stimulate the release of these chemicals and allow them to stimulate your emotions. These behaviors of course would be hugging, kissing, and intimate contact.
In the larger sense of biological reasons and how much further scientists have to go to understand what love is, one said it best. He said, “My wife tells me that flowers work as well. I don’t know for sure.” He then said, “As a scientist it’s hard to see how it stimulates the circuits, but I do know they seem to have an effect. And the absence of them seems to have an effect as well.”
Love is a powerful force that can be given of oneself. This force will enter that person's body, brain, heart and soul, filling them and causing the reactions scientists have found. But you knew it all along.
Fill the lives of others with love and see what happens. You will find love coming back ten-fold, filling your own life, stimulating your own brain and making your life the best life.
Stay inspired my friends.
