LOVE Misunderstood

I think love as we know it is not what love truly is.  Love is  Omnipresent.  Love is always there before it is seen. Hidden, yet, right before our eyes. All we have to do  is grab it while its still in the dark and bring it to the light to see it clearly.    If GOD is love and we've never seen GOD, then that's what its about.  And to find  that true deep love has to take the work of both parties.   Every person has a potential to be in love with someone and to be loved.

Put  that same love that you have for the Higher Power into self first and  let it trickle about your surroundings.  I think folks just want a quick  fix relationship built on the smallest love and it never last or work  out the way we want it too.   Why build a house on a sand dune.  It will  eventually crumble.

Maybe there are reasons why we can't find love:

1. Our bodies give us away even when we don't know it. Maybe you are unknowingly sending a signal or message to the world that  is keeping some people away - you look away too soon, you have your arms  folded at parties, you look disgruntled.

2. Every time you get burned, you develop emotional debt, especially if you don't deal with your issues.

3. Fear of success or of failure. The expression, 'be careful what you wish  for' is real because many people are afraid to be happy and successful.

Real love is something that happens slowly and lasts for a long period of time, perhaps even for life

Love is out there, its just hidden and very rare to find  these days like a diamond in the middle of a busy street.  You just have  to be willing to walk out into that busy street and risk getting hit by  what is out there and pick up that diamond.  In other words, once you've found that someone you love and they love you back,  you both are taking the risk of going through the emotional punching bag.  What are your expectations when you enter into a relationship?  Do you  approach every relationship as if it were going to last forever, or do  you let things develop slowly over time?

SIDENOTE: Loving and leaving people is never good, especially for the person  getting left behind.  If you do this frequently, you aren't really ready  for a mature loving relationship with anyone.

For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it - Ivan Panin

  1. Love is... something that I have never expierenced for/with/from another (besides my family...) One must love themself before they can give love and receive from another. Someday... Hopefully.
