Love

You know when you have an idea and it really has to spill out onto paper so you can share with others. Only the grammar is all over the place because you fall over the words as they tip out within your message? Well, this is one of those posts. I’m sure I will correct the typos and grammar soon. But for anyone who needs to hear about true love….

Real love is empowering and liberating. The roots of real love will have a unique meaning to each individual because we all are different, all so very special, and all so loved by God, whoever you are, wherever you have been, whatever you have done.

These are my beliefs, you may not agree, and I respect this.

And, I am also declaring we each were created by a far greater source than we can ever imagine. Think about it like this…, we must have been needed in the first place to be created, and each have a purpose to be here. Some of us spend most of our life searching for purpose. But we all have one, they just get a little misplaced sometimes.

Anyway, back to true love…

The kind of true love I am talking about is available to everyone, not just those who feel they know what love is all about.

‘Love is’

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” Taken from 1 Corinthians: 13 in the bible.

Real love is not about hidden agendas or hidden motivation, manipulations. Real love is given and received freely, without strings attached. Unconditional, as a genuine gift.

As the experience of love itself is interpreted differently to each unique person, I would like you to know that True Love is not about being ‘in love’ with other person or loving something so much that you do, say, purchase, look at, tell yourself, ever day you are or are not beautiful. Neither is it where we decide what someone is like or what we think they could be like, and we favour or even crave after the fantasy we have created of who they are, what they are. And so long as that thing or person stays in that illusion we have created, we are ‘in love’ them, they fulfil our perceived visionary about them and we make plans of how they will continue to meet our needs. But if someone acts different to our imagined reality, we may feel rejected, our plans with them have disappeared. ‘In love’ treats the person as a possession, it is a way of controlling, manipulating, coercing and can be lost or taken away.

This way we create a false love that is from our own human world of experiences and beliefs. True love blows all your, our, assumptions out of the water and into infinitey.

Real love empowers and encourages who you are and provides a way to promotes opportunities for you or me to be all we can be.

In love, on the other hand, brings pleasure, power, addiction, anxiety, fear, possessiveness, jealousy, anger and ‘how could they do that’ kind of thinking.

Ture love brings openness, happiness, freedom, fun, laughter, joy and growth, empowerment.

Understanding opens the door to love. It places no limits on who you are and who you can be. Although it does not approve of harmful behaviour. True love does not own.

Compassion and acceptance opens the door to Love.

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God, an infinite and unfathomable source, far greater than we could ever imagine. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” Taken from 1 John 4 in the bible. (God being whoever we believe created us in the first place.)

Be blessed.
