It’s a good practice to remember that emotions are a lower faculty, more animalistic.
And the faculties that are closest to God are our intellect and our will.
And over time we can learn to tease out what our “motives for action” are…are we pursuing the highest good for the highest motive (love of God or mere love of feelings we sometimes get).
One hears this sort of thing all the time…“we’ve fallen out of love”.
That’s a sign of immature, surface level, emotional love, not the sign of true love.
