Love!

It is a mystery why we fall in love. It is a mystery how it happens. It is a mystery when it comes. It is a mystery why some love grows and it is a mystery why some love fails.
You can analyze this mystery and look for reasons and causes, but you will never do anymore that take the life out of the beautiful experience. Just as life is more than the sum of the flesh and bones in the body, love is more than the sum of the interests and attractions that two people share.
And just as life itself is a gift that comes and goes in its own time, love too must be taken as a gift that cannot be questioned in its ways.
Hopefully at least once in your life - the gift of love will come to you in full flower.Take hold of it and celebrate it in all inexpressible beauty. This is the dream we all share. More often, it will come and take hold of you, celebrate you for a brief moment and then move on.
people, often try to grasp the love and hold it to them, refusing to see that it is a gift that just as freely, moves away. They want answers where there are no answers. They want to know what is wrong in them that makes the other person no longer love them, or try to get their love to change, thinking that if some small things were different, love would bloom again.
If you find yourself in love with someone who does not love you, be gentle with yourself. There is nothing wrong with you. Love just didn't choose to rest in the other person's heart.
If you find someone in love with you but you don't love them back, feel honored that love came and called at your door, but gently refuse the gift you cannot return. Do not take advantage; do not cause pain. How you deal with love is how you deal with yourself.
All our hearts feel the same pains and joys, even if our lives and ways are different.
Remember that you don't choose love. Love chooses you. Remember this and keep it to your heart. Love has its time, its own season, its own reason for coming and going. You cannot bribe it or coerce it, or reason it into staying. You can only embrace it when it arrives and give it away when it comes to you. But if it chooses to leave from your heart or from the heart of your lover, there is nothing you can do and there is nothing you should do. Love always has been and always will be a mystery. Be glad that it came to Live for a moment in your life!!!

i agree with sameera..love is really great feeling.we just need to value it,rest is upto the time

Lena said...

that was a very beautiful post :)

you know we have no idea why we love, whats the reason for that, we cant explain and we are seeking for these explanations... and if we found them ever it would be good, really good... but it would make this beautiful feeling a lot less magical :)

Divkiran said...

i think u being too idealistic my frnd

wish it was tht simple

and once u know wt true love is like, lettin it go and the loss of it...the void thts left behind...its really not easy to appreciate tht u had it once n tht its bttr to have known wts it like thn nvr have expeienced it

ppl who havnt experinced it r much bttr off cuz as much as thy mite crave for it, thy don experience the emptiness thts left behind....and its the worst feelin ever

Reflections said...

U have mentioned only 1 type of love...what abt love which a mother feels for her child, love for a BEST friend, love for a pet....

But I guess the topic is too complex a one to put it all together in 1 post.

And yes the feeling is something everybody must experience atleast once in a lifetime:-)
