A Phenomenology of Love
      By Manuel B. Dy Jr.
What is “L VE”?
Preconceptions of L ve:
♥ Love = ROMANCE
♥ Love an ACT OF
POSSESSING
♥ Love synonymous to sex
Book: The Art of Loving
                by Erich Fromm
♥ Mentions love in the present as “falling in
                     love”
3 Reasons: Emphasis on
1.Being loved rather than on loving
2.The object loved rather than on faculty of
  loving
3.Confusion between Initial State of falling in
  love & Permanent Standing in love.
The ORIGINAL“experience”of LOVE.
•   Loneliness and Love
•   The Loving Encounter
•   Reciprocity of Love
•   Creativity of Love
•   Union of Love
•   The Gift of Self
•   Love is Historical
•   Equality in Love
•   Love is Total, Eternal and Sacred
1. Loneliness and Love
• The experience of love begins from the
  experience of loneliness.
• But loneliness end when finds or is found
  by another in what we will call a loving
  encounter.

>> Love, a four-letter word that is not easy
 to define broadly. Yet let u try to define it
 through the following concepts.
2. The Loving Encounter
3. Reciprocity of Love
• Reciprocity is a mutual granting of equ;
  rights and benefits. If we would apply to
  love is being mutual, love means to give-
  and take.
• There is indeed an element of sacrifice in
  loving the other which is often understood
  by many as a loss of self.
• To be able to love, one must be able to
  love oneself first.
4. Creativity of Love

5. Union of Love

6. The Gift of Self
7. Love is Historical
8. Equality in Love
• Love is not a bondage but a liberation. In
  love there must be no superior/inferior.
  Freedom must be practiced w/in love.
  Freedom to be your own self, and express
  the mutual love shared w/ your loved one.
Ex: Love being demonstrated w/ our Friends
• We accept and respect each other’s
  differences including strengths and
  weaknesses.
9. Love is Total, Eternal and Sacred
   “Love as gift to the other as self cannot be but
                           total”
•We express authentic love without limit and
without periphery.
•Love is total. It is offered from the totality of my
being to the totality of other’s being.
•Love is eternal. It does not bound to be limited on
specific time. Love implies immortality.
•Love is sacred. It is sealed w/ trust, intimacy and
even share secrets.
