Alegerea „sufletului pereche” – alegere pentru veșnicie. O perspectivă duhovnicească într-o cheie psihologică

19 Decembrie 2011

This study presents, starting from the deep considerations of
the Orthodox Spirituality and also from behaviorism, the state
or the feeling of „falling in love”, the mechanisms and the forms
of love, insisting on the principle of the similarity and complementarity
between the persons who get involved in such affective
relationship.
Among the fundamental criteria of this choice for eternity, the
author insists on the necessity of obtaining the parents’ consent or
blessing pointing out at the same time that physical beauty has to
be doubled by the nobility and kindness of the soul and by spiritual
richness.
In many cases, when such essential exigency is not accomplished,
love becomes what psychology calls „the graveyard of the
feelings” or their death.
