Who wants love?

Who wants love?

Might seem like a silly question huh? I think it would be fairly safe to assume that most would like to feel loved in some form or another. Love comes in many shapes and sizes according to the situation. There is the love of a parent/child, among siblings, relatives or friends and even strangers. We also can’t forget the passionate embrace of a couple. There are even some who love “things”. Well perhaps, even things need love too. It all depends on what makes you feel happy I would suppose. That is what a lot of us would want, isn’t it? To feel happy and enjoying the life we have before us seems like a reasonable expectation to me.

The scenarios developing from each of these situations could possibly be as numerous as the stars. From my personal perspective though, things do not generally make me happy… people do. Sure there may be some exchange of articles in the process to help fill a need or to show affection. I would also not dispute the benefit and advantage that certain objects give us that could also enhance our lives. I would not be here writing this if I did not have a few of these things myself. How many things you need is a matter of personal choice. But I tend to believe it is in the interaction between the parties where the gems lie. You have to wonder why people do certain things to see if you can understand their motivation. You may not always remember what someone said or did but you can almost always remember how “they made you feel”. How you feel in the interaction is the gauge of our choices.

Like the old saying, “you can’t take it with you when you die”. So what then, can you claim for yourself to eternity if that should matter to you. It is obviously not anything in the physical sense. It would seem only your knowledge, experience and the satisfaction of what you have accomplished in your time here. What you would like to accomplish is entirely up to you.

So now, whom do we offer our love to and why? That is the question. I like to think of love as a two way street. It goes both ways allowing an even flow in both directions. It is harmonious in the ideal situation. Over time, you might see some potholes on either one or both sides disrupting the flow. How good your maintenance crew is determines how quickly the flow gets back to normal. If the potholes persist, how long is it before you start looking for another route? That’s a matter of personal choice and endurance. I think a reasonable amount of time and effort needs to be shown to make up your mind whether or not things will return to normal. If it doesn’t happen, for myself personally, I’m not going to beat up my car forever and be a victim to someone else’s choices. I’m going to find another route. In this situation, I guess you might call this “tough love”. I have to love myself enough to try and give “me” what feels good and right for my understanding. That is my personal choice. If I have done my best with all I could do, nothing more could be asked of me. If it doesn’t work out, it is not a cause for any negative feelings. Both are expressing their point on the path and does not make one good or bad, only different.

There are many in front of you and many behind you on the path. What would you rather have? Someone to help you? Or someone to put you down? You help those that you can and the others will make it in their own time. When the student is ready, the master will appear. We are all teachers and students at the same time.

I want a love “to die for”. Where is that love of my life that I would give anything for? That seemingly, incredibly elusive partnership that only seems to happen in the movies. Is that just a fantasy or does it happen in real life? Going by my own experience so far, it seems only a fantasy. To find that mutually harmonious and compatible relationship to the end of time. Romantic? You bet your ass it is! I’d bet mine on it. Just give me a reason to!

Everyone wants love...not everyone is willing to accept it
though...not everyone is willing to admit that either. It
serves to be loveless in many ways...helps to keep people right
where they are comfortable ...down. Not everyone is comfortable
being loved and treated well for one reason or another.

Not meaning to be judgmental...just sharing my thoughts and
that is that after all has been said and done, love really is all
there is.

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

Very good points to my thinking. To resist being loved is an individual choice. The reasons for that could be many. I would like to think that love is really all there is. But this is a reality of opposites. I think fear is the biggest culprit. Fear is the opposite of love and we have to figure that into the equation. Fear of failing or being hurt. Fear of what people may say. The list could go on. I think it's a matter of "understanding" and "choice". I posted some comments about "change" which might offer some other insights.

After all has been said and done, love is all there is....
After all has been said and done....
After all has been said and done

Fear and Love...
Everything comes from one or the other....
Is true.
Big Time.
What else is there? Everything goes back to one or the
other of these and after all the fears are stripped away,
love is all there is. That was what I meant.

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

Yup, Yup... to know and realize that we are all Gods and Goddesses, co-creating this reality with the Infinite force. The words or symbols or meanings for what they stand for are the embodiment of Love. In this limited environment, it is sometimes hard to express or comprehend that which is Infinite. Well done my friend. You wouldn't happen to be wearing a smile, would you?? Just curious.

Thanks for stopping by with the comments. It's nice to hear about the good fortune of others. It does make me a bit envious though. I wonder why sometimes why my lfe has come to the point I am at. I know there must be a reason. I just have to figure it out.

PurryKitty2... I should have written something else in my answer to your comment on my blog but these thoughts don't always come at the same time or I just don't have the time to answer more completely. So here I am now.

I was pleased that you found something of interest and possibly of value in my writing. Goddess also had some nice things to say to me also. I have been trying to mine these gems most of my life and doing the best to live by them. It is encouraging to actually get a response that might make a difference in someone's life, big or small. Actually, I can't recall receiving any bad review as of yet. But my blogging career is just getting started.

It is so hard living a life alone. I feel to exist mostly just for myself. That is a big change for me after raising a family and not easy to get used to.

So now I have chosen this path to share what I know and feel in my heart. If this direction helps anyone, then, that helps me to feel like I have a sense of purpose. Without purpose, there doesn't seem to be much reason to exist.

I have an idea for my next subject and will be working on it when time allows. I try not to make it seem like a pity party but I'm sure you've noticed how I've put a part of myself into the words. I also try to add things of value which could be applied to anyone's life.

So I'll leave you now with the feeling of being mutually blessed.
