Love

Alphabet
Reason to Believe

If you look closely, all the things that happen around us, good or bad has the intention of “Love” behind it. Love can create, love can destroy and love can kill. Most importantly LOVE has no language

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”

I truly believe that LOVE i a shallow word. Love is sinful.  It is a lifetime imprisonment of broken promises and unfulfilled aching. Love churns the soul inside out and it wears out the hope and craving of fulfillment. Falling in love is excruciatingly simple. But nobody warns us what happens after that. How do you go through with the drama and continue basking in it till forever comes? Maybe it’s supposed to hurt so much and shatter every iota of resilience withering away with dignified glory in you.

But here’s the thing. Love is the gravest kind of crime that you can commit. Only in this case, the guilty and the abused remain you. Nevertheless, as for myself, I don’t know what’s worse, drowning in the waves of love or dying in its sheer thirst. So punish me, anyway.

  1. A WOW-post, Kruti! Your words underline that Love and Hate are from the same energy – just two different ends. What you wrote here makes it even more understandable and clear. I agree, falling in love carries the risk to be hurt. But until then we live more than before and when we get hurt we find places within us never found before as we do when love unfolds. One thing is for sure: When it hurts then it’s not love. So don’t believe love hurts. I can only say…. been there… more than once. Deeply hurt, devasted, hopeless…. But that only motivated me to never give up the search for what I always knew would be waiting for me…. and it is waiting for you too Only because we got hurt by giving love is never worth to turn away from it. Because then love has no access anymore and we are definitely not happier but even more frustrated. Life is for living, living to the fullest. Love, live, cry, be angry, be happy, laugh, scream! Just live!

      1. It is… love is THE force. As you said, whatever we do there is the force of love behind it… (which end ever). I loved that thought a lot, Kruti!!!

  2. “Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only with what you are expecting to give — which is everything.”

    The word “love” is used and abused for the expression of different sets of feelings.

    The word love is used as an expression of affection towards someone else (I love you) but it also expresses pleasure (I love chocolate). To make it a little more complicated, the word “love” also expresses a human virtue that is based on compassion, affection and kindness. This is a state of being, that has nothing to do, with something or someone outside yourself. This is the purest form of Love.

    The ancient Greek used 7 words to define the different states of love:

    Storge: natural affection, the love you share with your family.

    Philia: the love that you have for friends.

    Eros: sexual and erotic desire kind of love (positive or negative)

    Agape: this is the unconditional love, or divine love

    Ludus: this is playful love, like childish love or flirting.

    Pragma: long standing love. The love in a married couple.

    Philautia: the love of the self (negative or positive

  3. It is easy to love what you share…because it genuinely comes from within. There is a certain peace that blossoms within us when a strong spiritual love exists! Thanks for always sharing your gems. Here is a poem about the genuine love we need daily within us to share easily with others.

    Peace of Mind

    I rest silently in the
    fullness of Your
    love tasting of its
    peace, happiness,
    and joy

    It is my home, my
    sanctuary from the
    evil of the world

    It is also the pure
    food and drink
    which my hungry
    spirit needs

    My soul seeks and
    needs to rest in
    You Lord, many
    moments of each
    passing day…

    So I may have true
    “Peace of Mind”

    Hugs and blessings to you Kruti!
