Is ALL we NEED is LOVE or is THERE something more POWERFUL?

Is there anything more powerful than your heart? When we love, we can be moved to defy terrors that would otherwise make us shrink. There is no force as powerful as love. The best part is that we have infinite amounts of love to give, and there is enough for everyone, as long as we choose to love. Wouldn't it be great to be the most powerful being in the universe? All you need is love.

Yes that indeed would be great, but I would also add wisdom and compassion to that. We must give love freely and have the compassion and wisdon to understand that we might not get it back in return. Unfortunately our society is so full of "me" that we often overlook what is in front of us. If more of us loved unconditionally we would be truely blessed.

I do agree that love is powerful in its own ways. However, as you correctly said, we have infinite amounts of love to give as long as we choose to. That said, it means that love itself is not as powerful. It is the mind that is more powerful. It conditions the choice. If the mind tells the heart not to love, there will be no love. To be truly the most powerful being in the universe, all we need is to conquer the brain. Love alone is not enough. lol.

Sounds like a song title! :) According to the Beatles, love is all you need. I agree and that is why God is a God of love. Even though we have infinite amounts of love, He has more love than we do.

Personally I think all we need is PEACE, for me Peace is more wanted, more essential and more prayed for in this world than love. I could live without love, I just wished we lived in a world full of peace. Peace is the hardest thing to find and to me peace is of more importance.

Yes, love is a powerful thing. It can bring great pleasure or great pain. There are so many different loves, each special in it's own way. As a matter of fact, "All you need is love" used to be on the front page of a web based program that I used to own. I loved that old Beatles tune. It still holds true today.

How true that is. If we could all just give more love. And we do have plenty of it to give. We need to choose to love more. I don't think there is anything more powerful and I've heard that God is love. So the more love we give, maybe the more we can be like God.

You sounded off just right on this one. Love is a choice. Not just a feeling. I choose to love my partner every day, whether I like what he does or not. He is not a person who would do something on purpose to hurt or irritate, but might forget to do something that should be done. He chooses to love me, even though I am pretty mean and sarcastic sometimes. Love is a driving force in a good relationship. Sadly, I think we are losing sight of love in our society.

Errrm...I don't know about that or the power of love or what. Have seen it numerous times being advocated in shows like Oprah and such. But I do believe in Karma. What goes around will come around. So I guess it does not hurt showing some love now and then maybe someday it will get returned to ya.:p

Thats so true , but hard to believe in this day and age , do you really think that thats all we need . I also believe there has to be trust in each of us , without that we`re doomed ... What do you think ???

no friend, there is nothing more powerful and disarming than the power of LOVE. falling is love is the most common yet most unpredictable thing on earth. we never know when and how if happens but it sweeps us of our feet. we see stars, we can get over the moon, we can do stuffs which otherwise we wouldn't have dared!! its such a beautiful thing to happen. Love can conquer anything and everything, so what we all need is little bit of love. thanx for a beautiful post,

I'm not so sure I'd like the issues that would come with that power. But I do agree that love can turn even the most evil of people into someone nice. Unfortunately there will always be those who prove me wrong with that. For that reason alone I'm not so sure I'd want to be that powerful myself.
