I get the importance of connection I didn t learn anything new and it was very generalized and ambiguous information I was very interested to half way through the book with the refreshing neuroscience approach to our behavioral responses and The Gentleman Mentor (Lessons with the Dom, perceptions to love and kindness Then I uickly felt disenchanted I just wanted to get it over with and finish the

finding that it affects your health What a great book The only uibble I might have is the dry scientific tone it takes from time to time for such an emotional thing I feel so bad whenever I buy a book that costs and I end feeling very eeeeh about it and this is one of them It started off great but then just a bit downhill for me Overall the writing style made it hard to get through It wasn t

changePersonally Love 20 confirms my gut feeling that the classical romantic Love story is harmful to actual human beings Love 20 weighs in on the culture wars fought between the Master Narrative of Love and how our bodyminds actually work Fredrickson asked What is love and found that there is no true or false Love Like Dan Slater s Love in the Time of Algorithms and some spiritual traditions she found that love is as common as dust and easy to create So simple so glorious schlemiel 32 My view is that this Master Narrative the narrative romoted by those who seek to be our Masters serves to

you to Kim Friedman Landau for her guidance In a nutshell This book is about a 神様 [Kamisama] particular contemplativeractice from the Buddhist tradition known as Meta commonly translated as Loving Kindness Meditation LKM Basically what it entails is intentionally generating kindness and compassion for yourself and othersIf you re sensing that this would be a very beneficial thing to do You d be right It is Particularly given how easy it is for many if not all of us to slip into unconscious automatic ultra cranky hater mode if we re not carfulIn case you didn t know or failed to notice mammals articularly eople are essentially hard wired to focus on the negative shit and The Full Experience pretty much eually biased to blow off or completely take for granted theositive shit How

Passionate to our selves and each other That s what LKM is all about And Barbara Fredrickson s work is all about Scotty Scotts Guide to Relationships providing a secular framework and the research data to make this venerable spiritualractice accessible and viable to the contemporary western world Believe me when I tell you I m all for LKM That is in theory and some times and all the time in ractice too I can honestly say I d be lost without LKM I m uite sure I would be at least 10% unhappier robably and my oor family members friends students and coworkers would robably be ready to banish me from the village if I didn t intentionally and regularly restructure some of my negative cognitions So that makes my tepid reaction to this book kind of hard to figure This is a book I wanted to love I wanted to ya know like hashtag love 20 it But I ended up only sorta liking it It s got some really redeeming moments But again I only sorta liked it Maybe I didn t even like it at times Maybe it was like a fart noise 20 What can I say I found it kind of boring and lightweight at times and ultimately rather unconvincing I wanted hard science Something substantial to anchor all of the claims There was some stuff about the Vegas nerve but not enough I think my real beef with the book is that I just didn t connect with the narrative voice But that s just a guess Frankly it s confusing exactly why I m as lukewarm on it as I amI have been kicking around Buddhist circles for a long time and I have subseuently been Written in Red Ink practicing LKM for years and at times I actually really appreciate it But I have always leaned toward the radical acceptance mindfulness and euanimity side of contemplativeractices and for some reason Crash Landing (Bear Creek, part of me feels kind of fake and new age when I do LKM Sort of like Al Frankin s character Stuart Smally from SNLSo maybe my mild discomfort with this book is just an expression of this mild discomfort with the whole LKM thing Or maybe I m just a hopelessly cranky ol dickrobably that Or maybe I m both and Or maybe it s just fun as hell to hate on a book called Love 20 I don t know I m grasping at straws hereAnyway I think LKM is necessary I think the whole secular mindfulness thing that s happening right now really needs a dose of LKM as a counterbalance It s Piper pretty easy to get kind of nihilistic when all you re doing all day is noticing and accepting suffering and impermanence that s misery and death for those of you unfamiliar with Buddhist euphemisms But this book isn t going to be my clarion call Not by a long shotPerhaps it s just to darn self serious Maybe someone has to write a similar book in a much less reverent tone in order to get me excited I love yoga and meditation but I hate hella hate the cliche wistful breathy yogameditation voice I always have Maybe someonerobably a guy and not a sensitive new age guy SNAG needs to cover this topic in a sober butch voice in order for me to feel it all the way And not Noah Lavine The Famoux (The Famoux, please for gosh sakes He actually needs tolease not write a book on LKM I can just hear all the tattooed hipster Buddhists spouting off Just Kill me now Dragons Gap please And if you re about to say read Sharon Salsberglease just don t That s worse Much worse Much much much worse Anyway I digress I m clearly the one with the issue here You ll robably love the book So get it and read it if you re so inclined Just don t blame me if you feel like you just ate a big nothing burger with heaping healing of fart 20 sauce on it cuz I tried to warn ya Barbara Fredrickson takes a uniue stand on what love is She doesn t discount the value of bonding it s that trust that frees us to be open with one another But she believes that it s the Physical Connections The Eye Contact connections the eye contact or sexual exchange that are the true instances of love My take away from this book is to keep feeding those relationships if you want to love and be loved Loved Love 20 Appropriately enough I loved Love 20Redefining love through a fascinating biochemical erspective Barbara Fredrickson s Love 20 explores the reconditions biological underpinnings and health benefits of this supreme emotion Stepping away from the traditional conceptualization of love Barbara describes love as the result OF POSITIVITY RESONANCE WHICH ARE

lab called PEP at the University of North Carolina that does research on having subjects ractice LKM LKM is short for loving kindness meditation and I love that it was shortened to LKM Why I have no idea but it is just a uirky thing I love PEP stands for Positive Emotions and Psychophysiology And I love that the author takes her earlier ositivity sychology further into the realm of love in order to make the world a better Good Morning, Buddha place I love that she brings in neuropsychiatric research that has changed the way we view the brain and emotions I love how she makes loving kindness

Photographer-William H Tipton part of each and every one of us I love that this is a book that unabashedly talks about love in a new way one I may not agree with wholeheartedly but that offers a

makes eople uncomfortable almost like it is taboo to talk about love too much especially in intellectual terms And if you mention love many if not most Live Wire (Elite Ops, people think of it in

intention and an action Oh and Genuine love is volitional rather than emotional Theerson who truly loves does so because of a decision to love This Lauras Summer Ballet (Laura, person has made a commitment to be loving whether or not the loving feeling isresent Fredrickson s redefinition of love lacks something maybe soul maybe the spaciousness of love for me She actually renames love ositivity resonance which is fine cool I like it and that means shared ositive emotions biobehavioral synchrony and mutual care I have no arguments with that theory or view Love tends to be Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl positive on the whole otherwise it is not love there is new and ample evidence for the resonance or synchrony in our minds in the form of mirror neurons and of course love is a little useless just sitting there without action What I disagreed with was theortion that if all the reuirements weren t met love cannot exist She says Film on the Left positivity resonance hence love only lasts as long as we two are engaged with one another So while she is writing the sentences about how much she loves her husband she actually does not love him while she is writing them She may have affection and a bond with him but her body is loveless and does not love at thosearticular moments only if they are in Public Policy Making physicalroximity I disagree I will agree The Artists Way Morning Pages Journal positivity resonance might not exist in those conditions but love does I think she is trying to just expand the definition of love so that those who talk all the time about falling in and out of love realize how ridiculous it is but love is so much broader and all encompassing than even Dr Peck s definition of love as a verb an action I think it is an emotion and an action a verb and a noun I know I love those who are not in myhysical The Mob presence Maybe she will invent another term for those feelings say when your loved one dies or when you have to be far
