Wot Is Love…?

love-11A good and sweet friend of mine asked me recently, “What is Love?’, and “have I ever been in love?”

I had to think long and hard.  here is my conclusion

Love for me has been a powerful force. It has taken me to great heights and left me feeling light and airy.  Yet at the same time  it has been the most abused and misused force in my life.  Many degraded things have passed by me for love.  But yet I know, true love is based on understanding, mutual trust and respect and not simply on transient emotions.  Love is being in balance, that is, in harmony with myself, God and each other.  Love dwells in the soul.  We must allow this love to flow out and around us.  Without love, all of life’s treasures are locked away from our vision and experiences, for indeed i now know ‘love is the key.’

So my friend if you should happen to hop the train and read this.  Sorry I could not answer you in the immediate, but a question like that actually caused me to think and go deep.

Love Chuckie…

    I guess at the end of the day love is unconditional which is what makes it so special. It comes in many varieties (brotherly, romantic, motherly), but it is only true and meaningful if it is able to be accepting of all things. I agree that it starts with balance and the love of oneself. Ultimately, though it comes down to acceptance and a choice. I am not perfect and neither are those around me, but I choose each day to love….

    I too must agree, true love must be unconditional whenever or however we give it.
