Love gently as it comes and live gently as it goes...


"Clarity of mind means clarity of passion, too; this is why a great and clear mind loves ardently and sees distinctly what it loves."
--by Blaise Pascal

We all have our own millions of definition about LoVE. But sometimes the way we define it is actually how we become bias with our own personal experience on it. If love goes so well in life, then love has many wonderful definitions. We can even become great poets!But the moment love hurts us the most, we have so much negative definition that love has caused. Somehow, I believe that we can only see love in a brighter and even fair perspective when "we know how to give love even until it hurts" and "when we can forgive love until love finds us in serenity within ourselves".

I've known a lot of people hooked with the thing called "love" ( ahh!what a great feeling!) and yet loses the love. Well for sure, I am no exemption of that. To some extent, I understand what it means to be falling in love. So I say," thanks to love for the memories.."

But the thing is, "when is love really love?". Is it when the moment we initially feel it and our impulsive nature tells us right away that this is the right feeling? or is it when we start to look within ourselves and think really really hard that is it really the right thing? As for me there is no other best definition of love than what "1 Corinthians 13" speaks out about the real essence of love. But human as we are, I understand that for some unexplainable reason, we cannot actually justify and even quantify love to such level. We are born weak and limited. And we can become victims of our feelings about love if we never stop being selfish about it. And we are like birds unable to flap our wings and still caged in because we thought of love as something we can have only because it feels great at the moment.

For those who are lucky to have found their true love, I say " do take care of it and nourish and nurture it even when the strong feeling of love has subsided...true love is tested by time and circumstances." And for those who haven't found they're true love yet, I say, " do not rush love, it will come at the right time, at the right moment, even when you no longer hope it will come...for true love finds its way to you and me..when it is right and unselfish."

Ev, it is absolutely beautiful post. Enjoyed the read.

Love is like the air we breath. It may not always be seen, but it is alwayes felt, used ans needed.

Love is a precious gift that you receive, and you need to give it with caution!



Hugss and love!

True, it will come at the right time. There's no point in rushing as it might lead to the wrong person - the wrong match.
