How do you diagnose that a person is in love, or how do you yourself diagnose the self that you are in love – is it emotional, mental, social, physical or even spiritual; and again what is this LOVE and not just love but TRUE LOVE that men are afraid to succumb to and that women often misinterpret and misunderstand?
According to literature love is a noun that describes a strong liking for someone or a passionate affection for another person; and according to the Bible in 1 Corinthians 13, “4Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, (love) is not pompous, it is not inflated, 5it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it does not brood over injury, 6it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. 7It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8Love never fails if there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.”
Have you ever experienced this or do you even believe in all this? To some is just another Cinderella story and to others it`s real life.
In my honest opinion, love does exist and it doesn`t have to heart – we as human beings need to let go of preconceived ideas of what love ought to be and stop complicating things by saying this and doing the opposite – we just need to let things be simple – be yourself and talk to God and things will definitely fall into place.
Nowadays the words “I love you” are overrated, sound cliché, sound like a bad pick up line and have really lost their meaning. Falling in love has become a mythical creature and is outdated – but the truth of the matter is, is that it still exists and not for certain people but for everyone – as long as human beings are not extinct love does live.
Huh? The creation of mankind was done out of love from God so love is as old as the world is and still goes around just like the world spins – the day the sun stops to shine or the world stops spinning then we can honestly believe that love has died.
Yes, the events of the world these days are very cruel, inhumane and make love to be a lie but who is to blame for that – simple, me and you. We have become so self absorbed and selfish that our hearts which are the root of humanity have turned into ruins. And how exactly has the human heart turned into ruins? – it is our ignorance of God`s voice and the ignorance of the messages from the universe.
So again, how do you know that you`re in love to a point where you take the final step of making a lifelong commitment to someone of marriage? If you can`t stay angry at him/her for a long time, if you can forgive without guilt or persuasion, if you can relate to him/her across all platforms of life, if you like what you see in him/her using the eyes of the soul, if he/she can restore what was lost in you by just knowing you and if you are seen in him and he is seen in her in the positive and even in the negative light THEN you have reached your love destination till death do you part. That will make loving him/her as simple as loving yourself and you will never feel out of place or feel out of character.
All this, is part of loving yourself through another person and finding God`s voice, love and remarkable creation in your better half.
So next time when you utter the words “I love you” really mean what you say and say it from the heart; never fear to love because you yourself are love itself.
