The term "Felix Culpa" is Latin for "Happy Fall", and it refers to the Renaissance idea that Adam and Eve's Fall from the Garden of Eden was necessary and beautiful, because it gave us knowledge.
However, the term also has personal meaning in my mind. Love is in itself a "Felix Culpa", because it speaks to the vulnerabilities and turbulence associated with completely devoting oneself to another person, hence the "Fall". Nevertheless, it also ignites within us an extraordinary feeling of elation and weightlessness.
Thus, love is a "Happy Fall", a Felix Culpa.
