Hello my name is Isaac Benson and in this post i am going to be discussing about Love. more specifically, I’m going to explain what love is and is not. This explanation is going to make you express love better, and feel a lot more happier doing so, hopefully.
What Is The Meaning Of Love?
Since history,there is probably no topic which has been so debated and that has captivated people over centuries and from most culture than the topic of Love. We put a man on the moon, broke the speed of sound, yet history has it that love remains a complete mystery. Science has not been able to explain the mystery behind it and has since put pen to rest. Even with available data, Mathematics has not be able to predict it. Poets still wrestle with adequate words to describe it. chemistry cant explain it with the knowledge of chemical bonding, however the truth remains that love truly exist and is being felt.
It may have being more than two centuries ago, but Plato’s words have never sounded more true, “Every heart sings a song, incomplete.” We are all looking for Love. At any given moment, we may be far from it but we never stop hoping the next opportunity is just over on the horizon. We are all looking for love.
One of our many frustrations with love is our complete inability to keep it, Like sand slipping between our toes on the sea shores, the harder we grasp the faster it seems to fall through. It would be nice if love was as simple as baking a loaf of bread or building a bird house for the backyard; a simple traffic instruction or the law of gravity, a logical list of driving rules and regulations to take.
The Truth Is; Love is a force of nature and for that reason, love cannot be manufactured, It cannot be bought(for any amount of money.) or traded, It cannot be forced, It cannot be controlled, It cannot be plotted on a map or graph sheet with slops and gradient or broken down into a checklist of to do’s.
Sexual stimulation and gratification especially through plan intercourse this days has become a trade in itself. certainly sex is been bought and sold today. And Whether sex should be for sale is another question entirely that merits our consideration, but love itself can not be sold or bought.
Love does not come with conditions, stipulations, or codes. Like the sun, love radiates independently of our fears
Love Is Inherently Free : Love cannot be imprisoned nor can it be legislated or quantified, One can buy loyalty, companionship, attention, but love itself cannot be bought. An orgasm can be bought, but love cannot. Love cannot be turned on as a reward. It cannot be turned off as a punishment. Only something else pretending to be love can be used as a lure, as a hook, for bait and switch, imitated, insinuated, but the real deal can never be delivered if it doesn’t spring freely or stem from the heart.
This doesn’t mean that love allows destructive and abusive behaviours to go unchecked. Love speaks out for justice and protests when harm is being done. Love points out the consequences of hurting oneself or others. Love allows room for anger, grief, or pain to be expressed and released. But love does not threaten to withhold itself if it doesn’t get what it wants. Love does not say, directly or indirectly, “If you are a bad child, Mommy won’t love you anymore.” ” Love does not say, “If you want to be loved you must be nice, or do what I want, or never love anyone else, or promise you’ll never leave me.”
Love cares what becomes of you because love knows that we are all interconnected. Love is inherently compassionate and empathic. Love knows that the “other” is also oneself. This is the true nature of love and love itself can not be manipulated or restrained. Love honors the sovereignty of each soul. Love is its own law. Love is involuntary, It’s a natural addiction..
3 TENETS OF LOVE
Love Is Complete Acceptance: When we allow someone to be exactly as they are, without any belief that they aren’t good enough, without any belief that they would be “better” if they were different, this is love.
Love Is Completely Unconditional: Love has no conditions. When we truly love someone, we can’t stop loving them, regardless of what they do or say. If our love is dependent upon the other person acting and speaking how we want, then this love is completely conditional. We often confuse this to be love, but this is just positive thoughts about someone. This is just loving what a person says or does, not loving them. Positive thoughts or the thought “I love you” isn’t necessary to love. Sometimes it even gets in the way.
Love Is Selfless: True love doesn’t want anything in return, because there is nothing it needs. We just love for the sake of love. When we love someone, we don’t look for them to fill our needs, love us back, and all those types of things. If that is what we are looking for, then we are just using the other person. What is the meaning of love? Love is completely selfless, never judgemental, love is without interest.
We were created or built to love, fall in love and be loved.. Thanks to GOD almighty,the God of love.
