Love doesn’t make the world go round, love is what makes the ride worthwhile

Elizabeth Browning

A few weeks back last two weeks I was tagged by Summer Fairy. It’s called the “BIG Letter L Tag“. For her, the BIG Letter L is just like honey dew. She just love the sweetness and juiciness of the Honey Dew running down her throat and the sweet wonderful taste it leaves. It refreshes and certainly makes her day a much more happier one. So, she tagged me and a few others to find out what do I think of the BIG Letter L. What is my idea of the BIG Letter L.

What is love? It is one of the most difficult questions for the mankind. Centuries have passed by, relationships have bloomed and so has love. But no one can give the proper definition of love. To some “Love is friendship set on fire” for others “Maybe love is like luck. You have to go all the way to find it”. No matter how you define it or feel it, love is the eternal truth in the history of mankind. Some say it’s mysterious, magical, complex, difficult, imaginary, thought-provoking, inspirational, intuitional, joyous, immeasurable, ecstasy, and undefinable. Perhaps.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. – 1 Corinthians 13:5-7

I remember watching “A Walk To Remember” where this particular scene when Jamie asked Landon to read over the bible verses from her journal. The phrase ever since, stuck into my mind and kinda help me to tell myself to define what love it is eventhough sometimes me myself was not even sure of what is love all about and then we’ll get back to square one, asking ourselves again and again what is love actually.

Depending on context, love can be of different varieties. Romantic love is a deep, intense and unending. It shared on a very intimate and interpersonal and sexual relationship. The term Platonic love, familial love and religious love are also matter of great affection. It is more of desire, preference and feelings. The meaning of love will change with each different relationship and depends more on its concept of depth, versatility, and complexity. But at times the very existence of love is questioned. Some say it is false and meaningless. It says that it never exist, because there has been many instances of hatred and brutality in relationships. The history of our world has witnessed many such events. There has been hatred between brothers, parents and children, sibling rivalry and spouses have failed each other. Friends have betrayed each other; the son has killed his parents for the throne, the count is endless. Even the modern generation is also facing with such dilemmas everyday. But “love” is not responsible for that. It is us, the people, who have forgotten the meaning of love and have undertaken such gruesome apathy.

Love is wanting the best for another. You love them so much, you happily give him/her to another, if the person can achieve the greatest spiritual, emotional and physical fulfillment with someone else. This is the opposite of jealousy that wants selfishly for our own needs rather than the best for the one we love!

Love is INTIMACY. Into Me I See, letting the other half see into me by being totally open and honest about feelings. It’s sharing yourself spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically. I guess that’s my best way to describe what love is, in a way la.

How I see love, ermm … I’d say

Love appears like thunder, but it dissapears like fog
