Love promotes health.

Love has consequences for health and well-being. Engaging in joyful activities such as love may activate areas in the brain responsible for emotion, attention, motivation and memory (i.e., limbic structures), and it may further serve to control the autonomic nervous system, i.e., stress reduction. This specific CNS activity pattern appears to exert protective effects, even on the brain itself. Moreover, anxiolytic effects of pleasurable experiences may occur by promotion of an inhibitory tone in specific areas of the brain. Thus, love and pleasure clearly are capable of stimulating health, well-being and (re)productivity: This wonderful biological instrument makes procreation and maintenance of organisms and their species a deeply rewarding and pleasurable experience, thus ensuring survival, health, and perpetuation.

Where are the schools that teach the lesson and the practice of love? We talk much about love, we want to love and to be loved, but we don’t really know it and how to practice it.
I think that the Holy Scriptures are the best ‘love story’ books that mankind today have thrown in the dust bins!
Please look for them and read them, and you will be amazed with great stories of selfless and unconditonal love. Central figures in those books give their all for the rest of the human race. They accept poverty, exile, death… to express their utmost love for all human beings at all times and places. Those are not fables, romans, legends; they are stories of real life. All these works are now freely available on the Internet and everybody can verify for themselves.

”Consider how the Prophets Who have been sent, the great souls who have appeared and the sages who have arisen in the world have exhorted mankind to unity and love. This has been the essence of their mission and teaching. This has been the goal of their guidance and message. The Prophets, saints, seers and philosophers have sacrificed their lives in order to establish these principles and teachings amongst men. Consider the heedlessness of the world, for notwithstanding the efforts and sufferings of the Prophets of God, the nations and peoples are still engaged in hostility and fighting. Notwithstanding the heavenly commandments to love one another, they are still shedding each other’s blood.” (Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 469)
We all want to love
And to be loved, but don’t learn
