Many of us have completely divorced the concept of love from the mind and will. We speak of the heart as though it were the opposite of the mind and the will when in fact the mind and will are precisely where true love resides. I can no more love without my mind than I could speak without my tongue.
Love is a choice. Some people find this statement offensive because it just doesn’t sound “romantic.” That may be true, but our goal here is not romance—it’s love.
