In this season of Love, the month of February, it invariably came to my mind… Don’t we burden LOVE with too much expectation and responsibility?
- What is Love?
- When will I fall in love?
- With whom will I fall in love?
- Why haven’t I fallen in love yet?
- Am I really in love?
- Is this how it feels?
- How long will love last?
- Is this True Love?
- Whatever happened to love?
- Is it already over?
- Will I ever fall in love again?
- Why I failed in Love?
So many questions; so much stress ! All for LOVE !
We continuously stress over it before we can actually find love, when we really fall in love, during the time we are in love, and also after we are done with it!
Too much thought, planning and analysis goes into something that is essentially meant to be just felt and lived ! Love is Life – meant to be felt, it cannot be seen ! Love is in the invisible little acts we do for each other, how we feel and care for each other.
The common mistake that we all make is that we tend to look around for love externally and to assume the object of our affections as the subject. Actually, Love is not outside us, nor does it stay inside someone who is waiting to meet us.
Love is with you, within you. It expands itself to include others and sometimes even the entire Universe. And when two people who are so special to each other choose to share love, it binds them both in a togetherness that makes their love life journey beautiful, adding a magical stroke of excitement to it.
We need to free up love to allow the emotions to spread and take us on a fantastic journey! Rather than worry too much about it, let it flow freely.
Emotions such as lust, jealously, passion, desire or affection come and go, but love is meant to flow unhindered.
If your Love for someone is True, it means you are ready to accept them into your very being and to share with them even your innermost essence, leaving behind vulnerabilities and intimate dreams and desires.
If your love is deep and abiding, it will work. True love is to define a path and a life together. Experience the power of love; feel it as the wind beneath your wings.
However, love and partnership must be looked at as the means to an end and not an end in itself.
You are In love? Great !
Let the hormones flow and energize you. A happy satisfied relationship helps you move on much higher in life – together. Use the excitement and momentum to enable you to enjoy greater happiness and growth. That is what a good relationship is meant to do.
A dissatisfied, unhappy relationship – on the other hand ties you up in knots right at the spot where you are!
Let down by a lover and unhappy? Get up, dust yourself and move on!
You cannot afford to immerse yourself in self-pity and nurse a broken heart life-long. It is the person who has left your life, not love itself ! In your onward life journey, it is important to sort out your relationships before you can evolve further. If not, then simply move on fast and find yourself happiness elsewhere. Finding the right partner is only a start of the journey to happiness and fulfillment, and not the destination. Love helps you to rise above yourself and gives you greater power. Together you can cross life’s milestones, navigating hurdles and sharing the happiness and excitement, the fun and warmth of a loving relationship. Allow love to bring you together, lead you, make you alive and to fill your life with happiness.
The only way to love is to allow it to breathe and flow free, rather than to burden it with expectations and responsibilities.
LOVE is an act of sacrifice for someone or others in order to bring out the best out of them……..
