What is Love?

“You become what you give your attention to.” – Epictetus

A snake came in a dream, and then I wrote: 
What does love mean?
Love is divine. What does that mean? 

It’s hard to define.
Love is something you have to give to yourself. 
It is something you can be given from your parents. 

That’s one way you might learn how to give it to yourself.
You can love other people.
You cannot ask for love from other people.
Love is justice.
Love is fairness.
Love is willing others towards virtue and letting go of the expectation that you can get them there.
