REAL LOVE AND MYTHS OF LOVE!
Greeks, Romans and all cultures tell us many MYTHS and stories of LOVE. REAL LOVE really exists, but we wonder sometimes if it really does. We will discuss here THE POWER OF TRUE LOVE; but I tell you: LET YOUR HEART FEEL AND YOUR MIND THINK because the reign of the mind are thoughts and feelings belongs to the heart.
Venus and cupid are able to defeat anyone who dares to control love. Psyche and cupid, Pygmalion and Galatea, Apollo and Daphne, Orpheus and Eurydice and many other myths of love show us how all, heroes or gods, are defeated by Venus and Cupid. Even MARS, the god of war, was defeated by Venus! Apollo, the sun of Jupiter, was defeated by cupid!
LOVE IS THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY FORCE OF THE UNIVERSE!
Yes, it is! Love is magical, love is divine! The Egyptian Hermes said: I GIVE YOU LOVE IN WHICH ALL WISDOM IS! Love is that force which make us to forgive and continue adoring the special person for whom our heart beeps. Love is that beautiful feeling of touching his/her hand. Love is that glance to that pretty face of the one who make us tremble.
A general, strong in character and in words, was able to make all his battalion to tremble, but someone found a letter that he never mailed out. On that letter he wrote how he was able to make his battalion to tremble; but he was trembling just watching the woman he loved!
Love is within that magical moment of silence when the eyes of the lovers see each other. Love is in that special moment when words and explanations are not needed!
Love is extremely beautiful and extremely painful! Love is like a rose: So beautiful, but it has thorns! So be careful if you dare to go into the mystery of love.
YEAH! NOT MORTAL, NO HERO, NO GOD CAN RESIST THE POWER OF LOVE!
The arrows of Cupid are powerful and Venus set trails to check the lover’s heart. They both play the game of love. Mortals, heroes and gods are at the mercy of the goddess of love and his son.
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT LOVE? - So, here is a good myth.
- LOVE : PSYCHE AND CUPID, A GREAT LOVE MYTH
Psyche and cupid is a really great myth of love. Here you have its meaning adn its lesson!
VENUS AND MARS!!!
REAL LOVE is beyond human understanding. Many people might think they know what love is, but most of them are really wrong. Love itself is divine and it can transform you into a very different person!
There is a myth where Mars, the terrible and strong god of war, fall for Venus (See the picture on top). He lost his control and Venus seduced him. Yes! Not even the god of war could resist the seduction of love.
Obviously this has a pretty nice meaning:
It does not matter how strong a person believe he/she is. Love is strongest! Love makes the brave ones to be week and get pail or tremble.
Venus, love, must conquer Mars, war. We want to conquer peace with war; but actually we need love to conquer defeat war and conquer peace.
Oh! Mortals when will you understand the power and magic of love? Will you ever admit the magnificence of love? Will you ever open your heart to drink the nectar of glory given by love? Will you ever understand that the way to a better world is not war; but love, compassion and understanding?
War can be defeated only by love. Oh Mars! You are so powerful, but love is more powerful than you! You are so brave, but love is braver than you! You impressed, but love impressed a lot more!
I rather prefer a heart full of love than a mind full of ideas of destruction!
WHY IS SO HARD TO FIND REAL LOVE IN MODERN TIMES?
That is a very good question. There are several reasons;
One is SELFISHNESS. people get married thinking the other person will make them happy. The problem is the other person thinks the same. So, each of them are thinking the other will bring happiness. The fact is selfishness cannot bring love because love and selfishness are not compatible. They are like light and shadows.
Another reason is MATERIALISM. Many people fight over money or material wells. Love is not compatible with them. Love is beyond money and material wells.
We can add FANTASY. Some people believe that old and out of time saying: "AND THEY LIVED HAPPY EVER AFTER." Give me a break! We in the XXI century and people are still believing in that fantasy. Please check the divorce statistics. We nee to be mature enough to understand love is to be build.
Let's talk about one more: PASSION OR DESIRE. This is a good one. Usually people feel desire and I mean SEXUAL DESIRE for the other person. It is not real love, but chemistry attraction. We know now days that the brain stimulate some chemical components that make people feel that big attraction. That is a mechanical process far beyond our own will.
SO, HOW CAN WE KNOW IF WE ARE FEELING REAL LOVE?
That is another good question. The answer is simple: WHEN IT COMES IT COMES!
Love is not that mechanical process explained above. LOVE GOES BEYOND ALL LIMITS AND IDEAS. Ideas come from the mind; love comes from the heart.
REAL LOVE OR TRUE LOVE IS THE NEED TO MAKE HAPPY THE OTHER PERSON. IN OTHER WORDS, THE PERSON FEELING REAL LOVE WANTS ONLY ONE THING: THE HAPPINESS OF THE OTHER PERSON.
DESIRE IS HUMAN, LOVE IS DIVINE.
Love is a mystery that hides from corruption and selfishness. Love is sharing and caring. Love is giving, giving, giving. If you are not open to give then you cannot feel true love. Real love do not accept conditions or limitations. Desire brings bitterness, love bring peace. Desire brings tormented mind, love a calmed one. Desire make you suffer when the other person is gone, because desire is attachment. Love suffers when the other person goes, but real love brings resignation.
Desire is a fire which despair anyone till that person get his/her desire satisfied. Real love gives you patience and the only objective is to know the other person is fine. Desire hurts and get tired. Love does not hurt and is always ready to love.
True love might start just as a simple and small flame, but with care it becomes a huge pyre. It can not vanish. It supports all trials. It wait as long as life is. It is never in a rush.
NOBODY CAN PLAY WITH CUPID,
BUT HE CAN PLAY WITH EVERYBODY!
Cupid as a little kid is shy. Nobody can play with him or be rude, otherwise he flies away. Do not let Cupid to go away because it might not come back.
Learn how to treat the person who you love, especially if it is a woman. Women are so especial regarding love and they really deserve love.
WOMEN ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CREATURES IN THIS PLANET. ALL THEY WANT, ALL THEY NEED IS TRUE LOVE.
LOVE IS REAL!
Yes, I really believe in TRUE LOVE or REAL LOVE. It exists, but we need to make it. It does not happen randomly. Love is a magical moment when four eyes get in contact and share that super natural force called love. Nevertheless, love is like a plant that you need to feed day by day. You need to water it, so it can grows up.
Yes, True Love exists and can be achieved. The secret is to have communication, to respect each other and avoid telling lies. A great relationship is based in trust. Trust is really important, but respect is vital too.
Yes, Love is real, but you need to be real about love too. Ancient myths tell us about real love. The power of Venus and Cupid is felt even now days.
LOVE: PYGMALION AND GALATEA
This is a pretty myth where a man (Pygmalion) supposes to hate women; but his masterpiece is a statue (Galatea) which is a woman. How this can be?
According to myth Pygmalion was really good making sculptures. One day he decided to make a woman. He made it so perfect and he got in love of it. He was bringing flowers, hugging her and kissing her. The cold statue was not returning any love back to Pygmalion. Venus, the goddess of love, saw everything. She found the love from Pygmalion so pure and so beautiful and she decided to give life to Galatea. So the statue got life to make happy Pygmalion.
The matter here is: What all this mean?
Pygmalion represents a person who has real love in his/her heart. Love is not easy to find and it is so easy to lose! Now days we can find many divorces all around. People are getting married today and divorcing tomorrow. Why? What is wrong? People seem not to believe in love anymore.
Everybody has a lot of fantasies about love and that is a big problem because love is not the way we want, but the way it is. Life is not a fairy tale where they say: "And they lived happy ever after." Life is real and life has problems. If some one gets married to "live happy ever after" then disappointment will be the outcome.
Here is the meaning of the "rock." Rocks are not easy to shape. But Pygmalion did and made of a woman a masterpiece. Love is not easy to hold in the heart. Just if a person is brave enough to face all kind of problems with the person who loves. You can not love and run away from problems or give up at the first problem. Only when you really love then you face and bear everything for love. Love is something which starts with a glance or a smile; but it could die if you are not brave enough to fight for who you love. Developing love is possible, but you need to understand it is not easy because it is a rock. So you have to make the most beautiful sculpture of love with the person who loves you.
THE LOVE OF PLUTO AND PERSEPHONE (PROSERPINA).
Pluto was the lord of the underworld. He was defeated by love as every mortal or god! Remember: LOVE IS THE STRONGEST FORCE OF THE UNIVERSE!
Venus sent cupid to bring love to Pluto. Venus is always playing with mortals and gods. She loves to show them how beauty and grace (Women) are stronger than strength (Men). I am not feminist, it is just a fact! Remember: all the gods gave the best to Pandora (the first woman).
It does not matter if men believe that or not, but we are always seduced by grace and beauty.
The matter is: Pluto was defeat when he saw Persephone (Proserpina). Pluto abducted as soon as he saw her. He was not able to resist the arrow from Cupid. So, he took Persephone to the underworld to take her as his wife.
Ceres (Proserpine’s mother), the goddess of harvest, stopped the growth of plants. So Jupiter (Zeus) sent Mercury (Hermes) to talk to Pluto the ruler of the underworld.
Pluto accepted to return her, but he gave her SIX seeds of pomegranate. Why six and not 5 or 7 or…? The answer below, keep reading. It was a trick because anyone who ate that fruit was not able to return to the livings’ world. The catch: Persephone was condenmed to return to Pluto’s kingdom every six months.
Ceres made the trees and plants to show all kind of beautiful flowers to welcome her daughter, who was coming from her husband’s house; but… Ceres made the trees and plants to wither. Yes, of course, it means the change of the seasons. Everybody is able to bring out that conclusion, but is there something else about the meaning?
