Lisa   “Love means Joy, Peace, Compassion, Communication, Nourishment, Care (without worrying), harmony, charity, wealth, wellness,  positive emotion, learning and awareness,  actions / behaviours (in a good way) protection in a non smothering, non destructive way etc…I think the word love includes all these positives and more. A constructive force within all living things and people, a certain energy an undefinable infinite value, encompassing everything. This sometimes varies from person to person. God is love.”

“Love the highest, the best  energy (or culmination of energies), a thought (or thoughts),   feelings, emotions, actions, a substance (or substances) and more than we understand at present (always incremented) always more.”

Lisa author Love Life, Tweeety bird story, The Happy Bubble
