We all make it too complicated. We think too much about it. We read too much about it. And we talk too much about it. We taste it in movies, on glossy magazine covers and cheap love songs. But… we are too scared to experience it ourselves. We are too scared to feel it. We are scared to open our hearts and let it in. We all make it too complicated. We put it in labels and compare it with samples. We even build some expectations. We want something from it. We expect something from it. We have an idea and when it doesn’t fit our made-up-reality it hurts. And we think that love hurts.
We are wrong.
Because love never hurts. Love is a pure form of energy that flows between us. We all are connected with love from one heart to other. Some connections are stronger, some are weaker. Some make fast explosions with long-lasting effects… Some last forever, some for a lifetime, some for a moment or two. But it is love. I believe that there can be even “only love at first sight” with the stranger you see for the first and the last time in your life. And it is love. It gives rise to that electric power in your heart that you will share with others. We charge each other to shine! Love is about sharing. Love is about everyone, not about someone, the real one or the only one. You are not alone. We all are one. When we understand that love is everywhere, in everything and in everyone, there won’t be any fear, pain or jealousy.
Messy love, crazy love, easy love, broken love, whole love, parental love, gentle love, platonic love, romantic love, passionate love, unconditional and universal love. So many forms of love. So much love. So much to experience and feel.
How can you be ready to live if you are not ready to love?
