Happy Valentine’s Day! On this wonderful little video, Dr. Bruce Lipton talks about the biology of love and how you can make every day Valentine’s Day.

Why do we have love in this world? It relates to something called the biological imperative, which is the built-in behaviors to survive. There are two levels of survival:

1. Survival of the individual
2. Survival of the species

The survival of the species is controlled by reproduction.

Do you need love for that? In primitive animals, the answer is no. But, as you go up the evolutionary scale, larger animals, when they are born, are not developmentally complete. They take a period of time to mature enough to be on their own.

When it comes to humans, it takes at least 13 years for a child to mature enough to be independent, during which time they are nurtured by their parents.

So, how do you keep the parents together for that long? Mother nature creates the cocktail of love (and self-love), the chemistry from the brain, which includes:
Dopamine – for pleasure
Oxytocin – for bonding
Vasopressin – for attractiveness

The chemistry of love is one of the most wonderful aspects of human life. That chemistry leads to compassion, altruism, love and harmony.
