Pennies From Heaven.

Definitions are dangerous. 
They can incite passionate debate and heated discussion. That's OK. I'm not afraid of debate and discussion. I am afraid, however, of having no common language to talk about the most important experiences of our lives.

Love will never be certain, but it's a  A deep sense of love and belonging that is an irreducible need of all men, women, and children. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong.
When these needs are not met, we don’t function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We grow numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick. There are certainly other causes of illness, numbness, and hurt, but the absence of love and belonging will always lead to suffering.
Love people. LOVE.
