Here is Dr. Hawkins's account of the energetic calibration of Love, in Power vs. Force. To embody, takes an extreme, evolved state. Again, I find the topic fascinating. It can be a challenge to step out of the societal conditioning of how love is portrayed, and what it's made to look like. I can't say the media outlets do a very good job in this day and age...or maybe, I'm not looking in the right places. Anyway...
Energy Level 500: Love
Love as depicted in the mass media is not what this level is about. What the world generally refers to as love is an intense emotional condition, combining physical attraction, possessiveness, control, addiction, eroticism, and novelty. It's usually fragile and fluctuating, waxing, and waning with varying conditions. When frustrated, this emotion often revels an underlying anger and dependency that it had masked.
Love is a state of being. It's a forgiving, nurturing, and supportive way of relating to the world. Love isn't intellectual and doesn't proceed from the mind; Love emanates from the heart. It has the capacity to lift others and accomplish great feats because of its purity of motive.
Reason deals only with particulars, whereas Love deals with entireties. This ability, often ascribed to intuition, is the capacity for instantaneous understanding without resorting to sequential symbol processing. This apparently abstract phenomenon is, in fact, quite concrete; it's accompanied by a measurable release of endorphins in the brain.
Love takes no position, and thus is global, rising above separation. It's then possible to be "one with another," for there are no longer any barriers. Love is therefore inclusive and expands the sense of self progressively.
Love focuses on the goodness of life in all its expressions and augments that which is positive--it dissolves negativity by recontextualizing it, rather than by attacking it.
This is the level of true happiness.
