If we engage our senses with many activities at the same time, we become overexcited and cannot fully enjoy life and engage in meanigful, loving relationships.

During the visit in the “Tender Barbarian” bookstore I have looked at many interesting books. He really manages to regain clarity of what is all about. Putting practice and theory together.

O sztuce miłości – Erich Fromm, Aleksander Bogdański • BookLikes (ISBN)

Unhealthy body, poses many distractions to a human being and egich a chance of living a meanigful, loving life. According to Fromm following things are a prerequisite: The fact that human beings are conscience of its existance, makes them unique in the animal kingdom. Fromms defeinition of love goes back to the roots, to the core of the human nature. It milosvi got me interested in the person of Paracelsus. After one becomes successfully proficient with the ssztuce of medicine, than one can start finally particing it.

Fromm mentions in his book how our culture influences the way we define love. He who can do nothing understands nothing. It cannot also be that one loves only, for example, immediate memebers of the family, but than despises, shows no love towards other members of the human kind. To refill this void, this loneliness one is searching for selffullilment, for not feeling alone.

In English this name would sound more or less milosc Barbarian”. And who are we? Theory of love 3. We become as human beings overexcited, our senses and brain enter a spiral of countless worries and thoughts.

The point is to calm down all thoughts and worries that one has collected in erih head thorughtout the day. In order for one to become a good surgeon, one needs to first study for many years the theory of medicine, human anatomy etc.


Somehow it got me more interested in other Fromms writings. We are dominated and enslaved by our culture. We underestimate how our culture shapes us, how it influences our behaviours, our worldview, how it even sometimes distorts our worldview. In the Summer ofduring Summer vacation as I have visited Warsaw I have spend few hours in a really interesting place, coffe-shop, bookstore called “Czuly Barbarzynca”. In the introduction Fromm compares the practice of love, to study of medicine.

Constant pains, tiredness criples us and distracts us from experiencing life for what it really is. My self awarenes as human being makes me aware that I am unique in myself, I live, experience and go through my life all by myself. Still before the sexual revolution of the s and s. In order to engage in meanigful love one has to keep mindful state of mind.

Selfawarness predetermines our human nature, defines our core, defines who we really are? This also applies to the partice of love. This is an art of medidation, where one only focuses on breathing and imagines a white board with nothing on it. Practice of love 4.

Thus, according to Fromm, in order to become master of a certain field, one needs to learn the theory, than apply the theory in pratice and third of all, throughtout the whole process of learning and practicing, be passionate towards the profession.

Love cannot also be selective. If one has no dedication, patience and passion towards his profession, towards his practice, one will not become a master. Of course, Fromm is against harsh, rough discipline, what he proposes, is simply a common sense, well balanced life discipline, with simple things like, regular sleep patterns, getting each night enough sleep, keeping regular and well balanced diet, keeping ones body healthy.

Through our mainstream culture we gain no understanding of what really our native human nature is about. But he who understands also loves, notices, sees … The more knowledge is inherent in a thing, the greater the love. Consciencess makes the human beings aware of their loneliness in this world. The awareness of being creates the feeling of loneliness, the feeling of longing of reuniting with other human beings, of become one with other human being or other human beings.


We cannot experience consciously our lives, we cannot properly process things and events happending to us, we become restless, overexcited, start suffering from insomia, anxieties etc.

Consciously or subconsiously each human being realizes the fact that he or she is really alone in this world. Human beings are concious creatures. One has to love oneself, before one truly loves others. I read it in the September of To love, means to be open, accept diversity and be humble about how complex, rich and diverse our world is. We lose touch with ourselves and with our true human nature. In the end I ended up buying a book by Erich Fromm, “To have or to be?

There is still one more prerequisite mentioned by Fromm. The culture of instant gratification, sex has not yet be so predominant as today. Prequisite for living an meanigful loving life is to mange our senses, to avoid overexcitibility, to control what we are experiencing through our senses.

As described by Fromm, love is a state of mind, where one comes to terms with all the beings, living creatures of this world, without exceptions. The book consists of following parts. Its a great place, with great atmosphere, in the Powisle disctrict on Dobra Street, nearby to Tamka street where I used to live when I live in Warsaw many years ago. True love, as described by Fromm is almost a utopic state of mind, where one comes to terms with onself, with immediate friends and family members and all memebes of the human kind.

Who am I as a human being?
