Are We in Lust or in Love?

pexels-photo-867462I have come to the conclusion that in Lust and in Love are really two different states of being. Consenting adults can be in Lust without ever being in Love. However, to experience the Love/Lust combo is a gift from the universe. It stems from deeper and more tangible feelings such as respect, compassion, caring, consideration, commitment and compatibility. The Love/Lust combo is a relationship that requires cultivation and an investment of time. A great deal is gained by understanding the Love/Lust difference. Through this understanding we acquire perspective and gain insights into our needs, wants, and desires. It is just that simple.
