The Principle of Love



Kahlil Gibran once said:

" If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees."
      
          The most fundamental principle of love is knowing who you really are, at the purest level of soul, beneath the encumbrances of human restrictions and limitations, in particular, not being allowed to indulge natural human emotions.

          Before we can learn to love, we must understand what love is to us. What is this thing that connects us in the Universe? 

          True love is centered in the heart and emanates outward. It does not start somewhere outside of oneself and move inward. It is like a pulsating energy from within every cell of one’s being reaching out into the universe to embrace all other life. Love is the one universal principle that brings all of “lovers” together and ensures the survival of the world.

            Love is seeing who you really are behind your perceived self image – that image created by what others see you as or you see yourself as compared to others. The most fundamental principle of love is knowing who you really are, at the purest level of soul, beneath the encumbrances of human restrictions and limitations, in particular, not being allowed to indulge natural human emotions. 

 1. Denying your emotions is saying that you’re not willing to accept them as an expression of being human.

We all comprise mind, body and soul, and it is through our human mind and body experiences that we can elevate our soul’s evolution to its highest level. That level is simply love; Love is all there is. Within the experiences that the human mind and body offer, you are realizing who you are.

 2. This clarity of who you are then reaches out to others around you where you also begin to see them for who they are. 

When you are centered in love, you can see beyond the human flesh and see that all others are also pure souls and that their human experiences, like yours, are helping them to realize who they are.

3. In order for us to realize who we really are, our REAL SELF, our souls must have human experiences. 

By “interchanging between the embodied soul and the outside world” through experience, we nourish our soul. Feel the soul through one’s senses, living day by day, in touch with the world around you. These experiences lead us to the Ultimate Truth, which is Love. Through our human experiences, we learn to express love. Know that as human beings, we have idiosyncrasies. Accept these as part of our character and don’t apologize or feel guilty. 


            But the main point here is that we must show affection and nurture another person to help her feel connected to the Universe, to feel his own self-love. Feel the connection with all else that lives. Be able to let go and stop trying to control one’s life. Be vulnerable. Experience pain, sorrow, grief, anger and any other human emotions. You cannot experience love if you do not allow yourself to express these human emotions. Denying them says that you’re not willing to love yourself even when you’re having these feelings.

             And perhaps, a groovy kind of love is just around the corner for you.  




P/S 

To you whom I haven't met yet, will you believe if I say that love is a symbol of eternity where it wipes out all sense, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of the end? That's the love that I hope I can found in you one day.

It's amazing, the love that I shared with you here, I do it all alone, waiting for you to appear in my life. For me, to find someone who will love me for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, is the ultimate happiness that I'm pursuing all my life.

And that is the love that I hope I can found in you. A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you. 

Until then, put in your heart the fact that I had fallen in love with you way before we knew each other. Perhaps a groovy kind of love that we will share one day will be sweeter than gravity. 

Will you love me in October as you do in May,
Will you love me in the good old fashioned way?
When my hair has all turned gray,
Will you kiss me then and say,
That you love me in October as you do in May?


For the other half of the sky,
