Religion and love- the two great unifiers in reality how?

Religion and love- the two great unifiers in reality how?

The underlying theme of both love and religion are relating, reconnecting and reuniting with real involvement 

Both these words are much misused and therefore their real meanings have been either masked or maligned.

The topic is really wonderful because original meanings of both these words have very important and vital components for life as a whole.

The vital components are the initiations of 'how we relate' with others  and  by extension to higher spirits.

In both, we try to reconnect  our feelings, emotions, expectations in joy  with someone else known to us [which is called love] or some other unknown source [which is called religion].

The expectation is primarily a source of  support, comfort and belief that other is reliable.

To all those who may doubt the commonality let me clarify that  etymologically  the word Religion is derived from the two latin words “re” and “ligare” which means “to reconnect”

'Ligare' incidentally is the root for words like link, liaison etc.

Another commonality is those involved in love and  religion get involved with total intensity and intense totality without any half heartedness and hence there is immense desire with expectations.

In love it to manifest in reciprocation and commonly referred to as aspects of compatibility.

In religion it has to manifest in one's own evolved character  with a sense of responsibility, compassion, equanimity and respectable behavior.

There could be varying degrees of intensity on different aspects.

Love could be romantic or rejoicing or responsible  or reverential.

Religion could be ritualistic or rock solid belief based or recreational or rational or real seeking for enlightened states of human consciousness.

Therefore, both love and religiousness defy any standard measurable quantification based evaluation or judgment.

So, it is no wonder that Sanskrit has at least 96  words for love

Like we do for diseases the diagnosis for love and religion too must proceed from the manifestation.

Diseases are negative manifestations affecting through disintegration human health, happiness and hacking life itself ultimately .

Whereas, Love and  Religion are positive manifestations integrating human  reasons, responses, reactions, reciprocations and reuniting and creating  synergy synthesis and Synderesis* ultimately.
The word love etymologically refers to the manifestations like the Germanic word leubh- "to care, desire, love" (cf. Latin lubet, later libet "pleases;“ Sanskrit lubhyati "desires;"
 So, the reality of religion and love is unity of human spirits, senses and sanity.
“In the end nothing less than the whole of everything can be the truth of anything at all”- William James
"The important thing is this: to be able to give up in any given moment all that we are for what we can become." --DeSeaux

The "Either you deal with what is the reality or you can be sure that the reality is going to deal with you." - Alex Haley

* "Synderesis"["Synderesis" is a technical term from scholastic philosophy, signifying the innate principle in the moral consciousness of every person which directs the agent to good and restrains him from evil].
