This time at the hillside of Bel Air, California, She wanted to be “in love” and he wanted to be “within” love. What could be the effects on beliefs, thoughts or feelings when love is preceded by “in” and “within”? Please feel free to comment on the language of love.
“In love”, as opposed to outside of love, can elicit thoughts or a feeling of immediacy, the now, the happening, during which love is occurring. That can also be about “into” love. That means being “in” and yet near, towards or just before or in headed for love. “In” can be about being inward, already arrived at, being here with love.
The person “in love” is already participating in it, covered by it, having maximum amount of love. In love can also elicit a popular style of it, what could be in fashion, hip, or voguish in the region. The feelings of butterflies inside the stomach, hair growing thick, loosing muscle mass, extremely attached, fearing separation, or fever by oneself can be among the experiences of being “in love”. A person “in love” may want the feeling to last forever more.
Even though one hardly ever says being “within love” there is vague sense of it that is about being “in”, contained and surrounded by love. The feeling of “within” can be smothering, somewhat suffocating, entrapping, all inclusive as in being back in the womb. Almost better to drop the “with” and just be “in” to be able to take in a lungful of air without being surrounded. The “within” also elicits being “with” inside somewhere, depending on the context, panting for air about in the context. A person “within love” may want the feeling to end for a short while.
Someone who is “within” love may become frustrated, related to feelings of smothering for independence, a struggle between being lonely inside and depending on the love within the context outside oneself. That struggle and frustration may result in the break-up in relationships. Given this, is it better to be “in love” or “within love”?
