While I realize that there are countless books about love and relationships and the aspects of what relationship love looks like, I am addressing love from a different angle – an angle that is not often seen. There is a diabolical force that blocks the ability to feel and express love. This force is truly the “dark side’ since it is underlying our every attempt to give and obtain the most important and powerful force in the universe. It all starts with understanding the intricacies of love and the forces that would hinder and even attempt to destroy love. Most of us have asked ourselves during portions of our life why we may do what we do and why the world around us is so hostile, resistant, and self-centered. Love can overcome anything, as long as we know the origin of love and the Giver of love.
