When Jesus said to love your enemy, He didn't say that it would be easy, or that you would feel like doing it at first. But to desire to do whatever you can for your enemy, as if they were your family, is what you need to develop. Desire is something that you can choose. Whatever you change your heart, mind, and soul to focus upon, that is where the attention will be.
Love is a matter of attention, simply put.
Wherever your attention is, that is where your heart, mind, and soul are. That is where the love is.
Since love encompasses a variety of emotions, love itself is not an emotion. Therefore, love is our focus. And however our focus treats us will define how we emotionally respond.
So once again, the true question is, "What is desire?"
You say that when one has all that they need, they no longer have desire.

Are you sure you are reading my post right? Love can be transmitted through the air or by touch. Sex is different than love. It is all about balancing energy and frequency of our bodies. Science will deny this. Medicine will deny that some people can give or take energy from others. I understand how it works. If you give someone energy, it is only temporary. If you balance their energy it is only temporary and reinforcement is needed. Fixing the problem is more complex, I'm working on that.
Auras exist, this is the bleeding of energy from the body. Is a bright aura good or bad? If you have excess energy it is good to get rid of it if you can not adequately and safely store it.

So many words for the simple impetus don't you think?
All of these have love in common do they not? Why make it so complicated?
Love is simply this - whatever is the focus of your desire, that is what you love.
So then the real question you should be asking is, "What is desire?"
Well, why do you want? Why do you care about anything at all? What's the point of it all?
