Love or “Being in Love? ” That’s The Question!

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.

The Way I See It:

We ALL went through many of “being in Love” stories, none lasted, none stayed, none was stronger than the rocks and hills of our journey, none was satisfying the next day, none was complete, none was filling, uplifting, continuously inspiring.  Instead they burned us, wearied us, drained us, exhausted us, hurt us, shocked us, hit us, jaded us, depressed us and broke our hearts into a million pieces at the end.  Yet rest assure that each of them shaped you differently, tough you a lesson, forced you to challenge yourself, your beliefs, pushed you to see yourself clearer, love yourself more and more,  took you a step forward to what you want and who you really are. You should  take pride in all your failed “being in Love” stories as they made you the person you are today. Value your life lessons, learn them, embrace them and keep on growing your self-love till you find and create the roots of your own tree……..

Love and Light
