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. By understanding the difference we gain perspective and insights into our needs, wants and desires. We acquire the wisdom and tools necessary to build sound relationships.  It is just that simple.
