What is love -facts and different faces of love you ignore
Love is a magic that creates miracles when the love is compassionate, selfless and caring. It is a refining agent which segregates a man from the animal. Love
The world revolves around love. Can the world exist without love? By love many people think it is a feeling shared only between a woman and a man. Nothing can be farther from truth. The care we have for others is also love. It is this feeling of care and regard for others that differentiates a human being from an animal.
‘Keep feeling the need of being first. But I want you to be the first in love. I want you to be the first in moral excellence. I want you to be first in generosity.’- Martin Luther King Jr
Always develop the feeling of care and regard for others. There are people who do not know how to show their feeling of love for others. My husband always used to say ‘love not demonstrated is not love at all,’ how true he was. How can you find out a person cares for you if he does not show it in an obvious way? Human beings crave for love and his\her heart is fulfilled with joy when others show their care and love for him\her.
You adore and love your children. Do you express your love for them in a way your child likes? Do not think buying the things they want is a way of expressing your love. Today’s parents are more flourishing materialistically than their counter parts of yester generation. But the last generation children were a lot luckier to have parents who spent quality time with them. Today, parents are in a mad rush towards earning for the future of their children and ignore that money alone cannot compensate their love.
With both the husband and wife going to work, they do not have the energy and mindset to spend playful time with their children. Every thing has become mechanical and listless. There is money but no love. If your child brings a piece of drawing, you give it a cursory look and say it is OK. Instead you should take your child in your arms and say truly how much you liked the drawing and give them a warm hug. Watch your child’s face glow. Do not forget to get him a box of crayons or sketch pens for him to improve and shine in his potential.
Husband and wife relationship today has become a detached bondage with both having no time to express their love. How do you express your love for each other? When your husband returns tired from work; you should welcome him with a warm smile and make him comfortable. Run your fingers through his hair lovingly and whisper’ tired darling’ and watch him look back with all his love.
Husband also has to express his love in a manner that his wife feels the warmth. Praise her beauty, appreciate her cooking and shower her with surprising gifts. The gifts need not be costly; it is your remembering her that she needs. Your wife will be literally swept off her feet.
How do you express your love for your parents? You should always make them feel wanted. Visit them during your week ends and allow them to spend time with their grand children. Ask them about their health and gift them things they have denied themselves to bring you up. When they are sick you should be with your parents to take personal care of them. You owe them that.
You should be a sincere person outside your emotional circle too. If your neighbor needs any help, be there to help them. Express your love for your pets whose world centers around you.
‘Anything will give up its secret if you love it enough. Not only have I found that when I talk to the little flower or the little peanut they will give up their secrets, but I have found that when I silently commune with people they give up their secrets also- if you love them enough.’- George Washington
Love is a magic that creates miracles when the love is compassionate, selfless and caring. It is a refining agent which segregates a man from the animal. Love should be all encompassing, providing the much needed emotional security we all seek.
