 564 There should be no disappointment over love, and there would be none if
565 people understood the difference between the emotions of love and sex. The
566 major difference is that love is spiritual, while sex is biological. No experience,
567 which touches the human heart with a spiritual force, can possibly be harmful,
568 except through ignorance, or jealousy.
569 Love is, without question, life's greatest experience. It brings one into
570 communion with Infinite Intelligence. When mixed with the emotions of
571 romance and sex, it may lead one far up the ladder of creative effort. The
572 emotions of love, sex, and romance, are sides of the eternal triangle of
573 achievement-building genius. Nature creates genii through no other force.
574 Love is an emotion with many sides, shades, and colors. The love which one
575 feels for parents, or children is quite different from that which one feels for one's
576 sweetheart. The one is mixed with the emotion of sex, while the other is not.
577 The love which one feels in true friendship is not the same as that felt for one's
578 sweetheart, parents, or children, but it, too, is a form of love.
579 Then, there is the emotion of love for things inanimate, such as the love of
580 Nature's handiwork. But the most intense and burning of all these various kinds
581 of love, is that experienced in the blending of the emotions of love and sex.
582 Marriages, not blessed with the eternal affinity of love, properly balanced and
583 proportioned, with sex, cannot be happy ones – and seldom endure. Love, alone,
584 will not bring happiness in marriage, nor will sex alone. When these two
585 beautiful emotions are blended, marriage may bring about a state of mind, closest
586 to the spiritual that one may ever know on this earthly plane.
587 When the emotion of romance is added to those of love and sex, the
588 obstructions between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence are
589 removed.
590 Then a genius has been born! What a different story is this, than those usually
591 associated with the emotion of sex. Here is an interpretation of the emotion
592 which lifts it out of the commonplace, and makes of it potter's clay in the hands
