I asked a good friend of mind who was gracious and very generous to share with me what love is...and how to know whether it is...LOVE.. and this is what he said:-
its more than instincts, that's just one sense. its more like when all yr senses centre on the same subject matter, u see it, smell it, touch it, hear it, even taste it, and all senses go in harmony and feel right abt it, ..
some people say that's when u r in seventh heaven.
It's one of those miracles that is hard to fathom. And yet no matter how hard you try to avoid it, it just keeps coming. Some people keep a blind eye to it for fear that it would hurt them. It reminds me of another wise man's saying...Some people are more afraid to hurt than to love.
When I think about it, yea what is hurt when the end result is true happiness? No one in the world gets something right the one time, some takes shorter time, others take longer.
You know when you just found the right one. After years of half believing, this time around I believe that I will know it when I see it. And this time around, I will harness all that I am to get to where I want to go.
All that I have, I give to you..Everything I give to you... My heart and my all...
WHAT I LIVE BY
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
