Falling in Love

Falling in love often presents us with the opportunity of experiencing a deeper reality. Feeling that someone was fated to come into one’s life, having a sense that
someone is a soul mate, appeals to a level of reality not referred to by our
ongoing concerns with practical matters. It suggests that there is some meaning
in life that is not created by us, but is there to be found. Falling in love
also gives many people a sense that such powerful feelings have trans-human
origins, that somehow the divine is connected with the love they feel.
