Love is like water: it has three states of being and is essential for life. Love starts as a feeling, I love you because I feel good around you. I don’t have to do anything for you. This is like steam, it is hot and energetic but it is difficult to hold and fades quickly. If you get past stage one, Love becomes an exchange of actions and feelings. You give to me and I feel good. I give to you, so you feel good. This is like liquid water, it sloshes around and is difficult to manage when you carry it with you. It can sustain you but you cannot build on it. In the final stage, Love becomes a decision, an act of will. I will give to you because I will sacrifice myself. Then Love is like ice: solid, immovable, strong.
