Letters 467: Love Without Barriers
Maya Angelou once said:
"Love recognise no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope."
To whom I haven't met yet,
For some, there seems to be some missing ingredient. Something that makes the lives of others appear joyous, almost giddy, by comparison. While they struggle to bear each day, those around them seem to glide through life unscathed.
While it might sound cliche, the missing ingredient is love
To be loved is only a part of the missing ingredient. Rarely will love be found if one doesn't risk everything & offer this most tender emotion to others. All around us are people in need of compassion. A friendly smile, a gentle word of encouragement, help in a time of need. A bond is established, no matter how insignificant it might seem. From these brief moments, true relationships can blossom. Even if these encounters never develop into anything more than a fleeting memory, they add texture and meaning to our lives.
Dear you, love is not purely a human emotion. Love comes from God above. He made us in His image, for His pleasure. It is His desire to shower us with His love, even when we haven't loved Him in return. There is no greater joy than to know the love of God and extend it back to Him. An eternal bond is created that transcends the physical limits of our universe. Regardless of our religion, whether Islam or Christian, we shared a common bond when it comes to love.
In Bible for example:
"Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma." Ephesians 5:1-2
There is no greater purpose in life than to love and be loved, by God and men. Nothing else can fill the void that exists inside our hearts when we look to the world, its temptations and its material rewards, to make us whole. Anything less than love will leave us lost, weary, alone and deserted.
In Al-Quran for example:
"And of His Signs is that He created mates for you from yourselves that you might find peace of mind in them, and He put between you love and compassion." Al - Anbiyaa 30:21.
As such, regardless of our religions or races, lets celebrate the beauty of love because we are one my hummingbird.
I believe that love is like a snow floating into my life. It didn't carry rain or usher storm, but adding color into my sky. One day, you will be the other half of my sky
