Discovering the True Essence of Love
“When you love someone, you’ll do anything, you’ll do all the crazy things, that you can’t explain..”
- Bryan Adams
I have always pondered about this simple little question. Pondered over this question on my way back from office, pondered over this simple question when I stood at the edge of the road and watched the world go by. Love is such as beautiful word. Love happens when we find our inner reflection is somebody’s eyes. I am a person who strongly believes in love at first sight.
All through our lives, we are in constant search of that one person who will keep us happy 24x7. Love can do just that, and even more. We begin to find life in everything, the leaves when they dance in the rain, to the water which shimmers with the morning light. Everything. The moment you’ll find that one person, my god! You’ll know. In love, we begin watching and perceiving the world through the eyes of our loved ones.
It is like he/she is able to fill that void in your life with all love and happiness.
This brings me to the second part of the topic.
I have a simple way of understanding love. To me, love and trust are the foundation stones of any relationship. With love comes trust. With trust comes love. In these mad times, love has become materialistic. Love is a word which has now been molested off its true meaning. And this bothers me.
This is my sixth year in social networking. I just noticed, I haven’t seen a success story yet. Everything, it seems, is perfect for a couple of months and then suddenly, things start to take a turn towards the worse.
Where do most people commit the fundamental mistake? When do they hammer the first nail in the coffin? Is it when a person becomes over-possessive about the other? Or, is it when one begins to expect too much out the other which he/she can’t afford?
The answer is somewhere else.
It is when one begins to think, “I am in a relationship” and stops thinking, “I am in love.’ This is when it all begins – the first nail in the coffin.
Love is a beautiful feeling. It can make even the darkest of nights beautiful. It is when you start comparing the darkness of the night to your beloved’s hair on your face. It is when you compare the vast horizon with your beloved’s smile, it is when you begin to think of that person before you think about yourself. Love makes us complete, by filling the void of incompleteness.
Love is being in heaven. Period.
