Love more than make believe…
love is love
How did you encounter love? Was it cruel? or amazing? something sexy at first and then arrogant later? What expressions are on your face when I talk about love? Maybe it was all love in the end. Maybe it was all love in the beginning. Many philosophers came and went but still cannot describe love truly. Maybe love is the actual element, and we are just its pieces. Can you really love more than make believe?
Even though there are so many “maybe” in love but still we cannot live apart from it or live without getting involved in it. Love is just like describing consciousness in a way. Consciousness or love is easy to understand but hard to describe or express. Even a whole span of human life is inadequate to really express it.
What is love?
Let’s agree on one aspect. You feel love and I feel love too and so has everyone on earth. Love happens to everyone, but it is a task to maintain or manage love. The best description of love is given by Buddha. Lord Buddha said, “if you like a flower you’ll pluck it but if you love a flower, you’ll water it daily.” Perhaps to me this is the best description of love.
Love is an unconditional and un-tamed force, and it is the best that it remains the way it is. Just do love and express it in the best way that you can. Don’t expect anything out of it. That’s what it is. Now I know some would argue that it is easier said than done. But that is what this blog is about. To really Love actually. Love more than just make believe!
Just like one cannot just learn swimming without ever going into the water just like that one cannot truly know what love is or how love is without either being in love or giving love to someone. Experiencing love is a entirely different phenomenon. And believe me! Many great people came to earth to teach only one thing. Love!
It is far better to share the situations and feelings of life with someone rather than to just live it alone. Human beings are dependent creatures and prefer to roll in companionship. Thus, we all need someone to rely on, to share and experience the beautiful catharsis of life. I pity those who think love doesn’t exist. Maybe you just never happen to give love to someone.
Love is the only self-less act. A person in love would give his/her all to nourish the other person. This is what the core of every relationship is. Love was always an act of giving and not receiving. When two people combine to give each other everything without expectations that is when a long-lasting relationship happens. So go out there, find someone to love and just do it.
There may be times when in a relationship that you won’t feel like love or honeymoon period anymore. That is when love truly starts to develop. The nourishment truly begins. This is the threshold where most people fall out. Go beyond it.
No matter what the situation, place or time. Two people will make mistakes, hurt each other, and make up for it their whole lives. That is what a relationship is in its raw form. Do not make a huge mistake to run away from it. Just understand and overcome. The pity of the world is that everyone accepts that love happens, but no one bothers to teach love anymore. Or how to love. Which ideally should be taught.
So, celebrate the best feeling and the biggest festival with love! Happy Valentines.
