Happy New Year. Interesting points on the biochemistry of love. I show gratitude daily for those people and even the things that I love. It places my soul on a higher frequency, because when I go into the solitude of a gratitude prayer, it move the endorphins at a level that mirrors intoxication,
I wouldn’t place so much emphasis into the body (mind or heart). It is here, where we psychologist forget the foundation of our ontological past. Psyche is Soul. It is breath and soul interchangeable from its ancient Greek origins. The logos (study) of psyche must take this unknown, and quite possibly unknowable effect into consideration, as it is always an an invisible force that attracts two souls to intertwine in loves beautiful embrace. Thank you for sharing this, it brought up great insight for me to start my morning. It will also become the subject of study for next weeks blog series.
