    Do you write romantic poetry? Then this book is for you; a must read.

    We: Understanding the Psychology of Romantic Love
    by Robert A. Johnson :flame:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...f=sr_1_1/104-1860479-1123916?v=glance&s=books

    "Romantic love is the single greatest energy system in the Western psyche. In our culture it has supplanted religion as the arena in which men and women seek meaning, transcendence, wholeness, and ecstasy.

    As a mass phenomenon, romantic love is peculiar to the West.

    Romantic love, is not just a form of "love," it is a whole psychological package -- a combination of belief, ideals, attitudes, and expectations.

    These often contradictory ideas, coexist in our UNCONSCIOUS-Mind and dominate our reactions and behavior, without our being aware of them.

    When we are "in love" we believe we have found the ultimate meaning of life, revealed in another human being. We feel we are finally completed, that we have found the missing parts of ourselves. Life suddenly seems to have a wholeness, a superhuman intensity, that lifts us high above the ordinary plain of existence."

    This book is well worth the money. It will change your perspective on romantic love. You will NEVER listen to another love song or read a romantic poam the same way after reading this book.

    love is a very powerful four letter word that is in deed a part of a mental stamina that may break or create life. Love is what i have found through the will of God.
