When you are in doubt about matters like whether you should yearn for love or not, it means you want it. It also suggests you might need to experience it before you are willing to let go of your craving for it. But it doesn't necessarily means you should just jump the gun. Your doubt probably exists because you think that rationally, you should not crave for it. The suffering can arise from

a) Conflict between reason (rationality) and emotion (irrationality)
b) Conflict between true reason (truth) and your false reason (lack of wisdom)
c) Conflict between positive emotions (useful emotions such as compassion) and negative emotions

So what should you do? What can we do? Other than increase our understanding of true reason and increase our positive emotions- for it is only with perfected reason and emotion (wisdom and compassion) that all our conflicts end. JoinMailingList4LatestUpdates/Reply
