Beckoned by unsatisfied curiosity about matters pertaining to spiritual life, Amy Hunt set out on a journey to answer questions she didn’t even realize she had. As mystery compelled the search, what religion couldn’t answer, spiritual searching did. Designed uniquely with a Q&A Appendix, Spirituality Matters deeply examines the common questions spiritual seekers ask. What happens after death? Does it matter? Likewise, similar questions are addressed in a hearty, deep analysis, assisting seekers in life’s persistent, meaningful, and soulful search.
Passionate about spirituality and psychology, and a proven leader in spiritual events and workshops, Amy Hunt enjoys articulating the intersection of both topics. As a published, thought-provoking author, she combines deep exploration with cutting-edge thoughts in her works, intentionally challenging one’s mindset and status of growth.
When I started seeking the truth on love, it was most challenging because I couldn't find many sources or previously written material on what it is in essence. So, I considered it a challenge to meet - to present a philosophy on spiritual love.
In this chapter I analyze and describe love. Upon examining it as an energetic entity, I also compare empathy, lovingkindness, and some common languages' understanding of love. Interesting enough, love has different meanings around the globe.
Spirituality Matters: Deeper Thoughts for Spiritual Curiosity
Between these bounds that consist such a loving relationship, there is a shared connection between the participants. Those who participate with love (giving or receiving it) will confess that it is a feeling. We note that we feel a difference between love and anything other than love. Some may say that they feel love as an emotion, when actually, they subtly feel an energy. In the same way as a magnetic force or gravity, love is experienced as a different kind of physical force. We know it best as an energy of the spiritual realm, yet it disguises itself as a physical feeling, possibly for reward purposes. Many claim equalizations between love, God, energy, and light. Physics at least proves that light and energy are the same; and, as taught from religion, if God is love and God is light, then love is equal to all of the above. Furthermore, just as we can acknowledge the presence of magnetic forces together, love can be a shared experience as well. Therefore, love is a form of energy collectively shared among persons.
