Why ‘being in love’ feels so good…

Someone asked me the other day… “Why does ‘being in love’ feel so good”? I replied “Because of a simple but rare privilege it allows…”                    

………………

You might ask “What privilege?”! Well! Let me explain…

If, in general, you list down things that give you pleasure or peace – be it looking at the moon, basking in the sun, dining in candlelight, riding a bike, sitting on a roller-coaster, dancing in a disc, smoking a cigarette, sipping a drink, gambling in a casino, watching a movie, playing a sport, going on a vacation, enjoying a shopping-experience, listening to a song, playing a guitar or even reading this post on my blog; then in any case, actually all you are looking for is just a way to…‘be in this moment’.

Yes! All the above activities are merely creation of apparatus to facilitate that one thing. That’s what you want; and honestly, that’s all you need…to be happy.

And for precisely the same reason “being in love” feels so good…When you are looking in eyes, holding hands, whispering in ears, touching face softly, running fingers through hair, feeling the warmth of each other’s breath, coddling gently, hugging tightly, kissing with your eyes closed, or ‘becoming One’ … in each of the cases, you are ‘right there…in the moment’.

………………

Yes! Love feels good, not for what you do in it, but for what it does for you. 🙂 🙂
