Love is...

Love is a beautiful word, but what does it mean? Many say they know, some think they know, and others give up trying to know. I can't define it for you. Let's just say, I'm a believer in genuine agape, altruism, and eros love. You have to define it for yourself. It's meaning is as various as the persons who uses it.

The word love has been used, abused, and taken in vain. It is so powerful that it make some people afraid to try it. So, they journey alone by circumstance or choice. Love makes you naive, vunerable, and some people prey on that. For predators, the thrill is in the hunt to steal, kill, and destroy. They give love a bad name.

Some people try to master it as if riding a bull or bronco. For others, they are more debonair, suave, doctors of elixirs, potions, powders, and lotions. Still some try to capture love and hold it prisoner. They fight for it, will kill and die for it. Whether it is for their country, or individuals. They'll say it was all done in the name of love. You can't use love that way. Won't they ever learn? Maybe, maybe not.

They say all is fair in love and war. To me it's like a thin line that has gotten blurred. But isn't it funny how love seems to have more and more tags that follow it. Like, love and peace, love and hate, love and war, love and money, love and country, love and humanity, get my drift? Love can stand on it's own.

Nothing can compare to the love of your higher power. For me, that is Jesus, like that Lionel Richie song, Jesus is Love. Also, there is no comparison to the serious, genuine, for real love of two individuals. Even the love of family and friends is a magnet.

In my experiences, of this lifetime, the ultimate is the love that strangers, who don't know you, won't judge you by the color of your skin, or the shape of your body, but will go out of their way to help you, give you praise, a hello, wink, smile, a two thumbs up, a pat on the back, an email, a phone call, a hug, and a kiss. And you still don't believe in love?

I didn't write this to define love, but to try to make sense of it all. I employ you to open up your heart, your mind and let love in. I know it's scary. I know you've been hurt, I have too. I'll suffice to say, however you define it, it always is and always will be, your choice. So, either put up or shut up.

O, Pier, what a wonderful, thought-provoking article. And filled with such insight and with so many examples. This is really good stuff.

I see this was posted in January. I didn't know that when I posted my article Love recently. But since I did, I would invite you to visit my site and offer your review comments. After reading this, it's obvious you would have so much to offer.

And, like you, I believe in love, 'cause love is lovely!

Very good write!
I love unconditionally. Even when I am stomped, slandered, and beaten to a pulp- I still love. I just have the good sense to stop trying to get it in return, and address the disrespect and abuse. It's grand when it's all good though!

Great and powerful write and a priviledge to read indeed.
Something good for me to chew on for I am a believer in love and only love. "I employ you to open up your heart, your mind and let love in. I know it's scary" it is apparent that is how some individuals are...makes one wonder just how could they get that bad off in the beginning. One should let their hearts soar as much as possible, perhaps it also is a blessing from the heavens.

Take care let love soar,

Great offering on love!!

Love is a feeling that you feel when you get that feeling that you know you never felt before...just how I feel love feels like :)!!

Love Tinka
