Abstract


The power of love desire as a harmonizing and creative drive, which awakes the sense of sympathy and mutual acceptation, plays an invaluable healing and socializing role in the life of an invalid. The erotic drive is fundamental for human and natural relationships and for human yearning for the divine and for self-sacrifice and self-determination in the divine via love and, sometimes, via the acceptation of suffering. The depth of these sensations may be superficial when it comes to hurt pride or, by contrast, may be immense and even able to transform suffering into bliss when it comes to sympathy for the neighbor or the Protoplast. The power of love and erotic drive allows a human to perceive and accept the fullness of his/her own being and of the one he/she loves being, as well as the mystic fullness of the Divine existence.
