LOVE is about truly knowing,understanding and what you do for another person

In the love workshop we were introduced to the book- “The Road Less Traveled” by Scott Peck.

Here Scott Peck shares his perspective on love that love is not a feeling, it is an activity and investment. He defines love as, “The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth”. Love is primarily actions towards nurturing the spiritual growth of another.

The first part of the book consists of discipline, which Scott Peck considers is essential for emotional,spiritual and psychological health and which he describes as “the means of spiritual evolution”.

In the second part, Peck addresses the nature of love, which he considers the driving force behind spiritual growth. Here,he shares the nature of love against a number of common misconceptions about love, he considers it as a very destructive myth when it is solely relying on “feeling in love”.He also says that love is related to dependency and that true love is linked with the feeling of “falling in love.”

I would like to thank the management for arranging such classes for common people like us.We are blessed to get such opportunities:)
