With this book, you will embark on a journey from the world of subatomic particles towards the meaning of love, at times accompanied by the light of science and at times by emotional responses. This is a 14-billion year journey that started in a ball of fire with the Big Bang. What this means is that within the universe, there is a system and force that is outside the laws of physics. As for the physicists, even they began to talk about God once they gained a greater understanding of the universe. In all probability, it will not be long before they are also talking about love. However, in our search for well-being and love, life’s greatest impulses, it is impossible not to wonder whether or not there is a cosmic function that will give us some answers. There must be; but unfortunately some of life’s secrets cannot be perceived by a simple process of learning and that is why we probably need a different type of perception that can go beyond our consciousness. If there is one thing Zen Buddhists must know, it is that they can only take you closer to the threshold of knowledge and leave you there. From there on, it is down to you how much you can open up your perception. In any case, Love is not sex and kissing. Dreams of happiness? No, it never was… Perhaps love is the tinkle that comes with the first touch of your tiny hand on a huge, ponderous bell, or the speck of light that slips into your eyes. Perhaps it is the voice that tells you to stay when you are about to go… The impulse that propels you to someone’s side because you miss them. In other words, we don’t understand exactly what love is. In fact, it is a kind of magic charm. A charm chiselled into the foundation stone of life. So what is this charm?
