      Love within the structure of Da-sein, it a mitda-sein (being-with).
      Although, love is 'my possibility', may be expressed as self-love. I
      love being myself. I love being alive. If I am going to choose
      between living and dying, the fact that I have not committed
      suicide indicates that I have in reality already chosen life. However
      reluctantly and dismally we live, most people choose life.

      Angst has produced no death-wish in me and no action of
      immediate death.

      Inspirations on Love (private reflection) accept it or not as you
      so wish.

      LOVE 'Is'

      LOVE ...'loves' being.
      I love Being Alive!
      I love Being here in this world.
      LOVES...'loves' being with someone (mitda-sein)
      I love being with my wife (sorry, that's the way it is)
      I love being with my friends (can't help myself)
      I love this 'dynamic state' of being with others.
      I do not hate it, dread it or have anything negative to say about it.

      Notes: Love is behavioral. Love is affective behavior. I like ice
      cream. I like Strawberry ice cream, Vanilla and Chocolate. I prefer
      Chocolate. I like choclate better than Vanilla. Love-itself 'loves'
      many different things, but may in it's dynamic state, love one thing
      more than the others. Love is a 'feeling'; it can be a passionate
      feeling, a deep feeling. Preferential love favors loving something
      better than another. I love chocolate most of all.

      But it's all human behavior.

      It gets a little more complicated when it comes to people. But the
      principle is the same. And then the love is nuanced and shaded by
      variation; sexual love, friendship, family, etc. No political
      ideaology can eliminate or properly serve this private personal
      dimensions of being. Authenticity is not a group effort.

      When I am authentic, I do not bear witness to politics or crowds of
      'the they'. I cannot attest to it, or certify to it's validity. It
      matters not what it is; capitalist or communist or socialist or
      anarchist; I do not bear witness to it. Not matter how practical and
      inevitable it is, it's all feels false.

      I would just a soon run bare footed with Richard, lie on the beach,
      eat sand or follow John the baptist; eat locus and spout prophetic
      doom to the world. <<<Jesus is Coming>>>
