Love On The Physical Level

laitman_959Question: Can we see examples of true love anywhere so we can understand the possibilities of realizing it?

Answer: An example of true love is the love of a mother for her child.

This is love on the physical, beastly level, which can be seen in a limited form in animals and in a more extensive form in humans. If we were to cut off the connection between a mother and her child, there would not be any love between them.

Therefore, in our world, what we call love is simply an egoistic attitude toward a source of pleasure. It is nothing more than this. If I love you, then I receive pleasure from you.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 8/13/17
