When a selfish lover says, “I love you”, what they are saying is, I love the way that you make me feel. Or worse, they are saying, “I love you” to try and ‘get’ something from you. Selfish love recognizes ‘certain’ needs must be met in order to maintain its happiness. Real love is free of these restraints and demands.
Love is never ‘perfect’. Demands bring obstacles to love. Unnecessary expectations about love make it rigid and inflexible. We all change from birth to death, and if we are not willing to accept these changes and grow with them as both an individual and as partnerships, then we are neither ready or worthy of love’s full attention.
“There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved: It is God’s finger on man’s shoulder.” Charles Morgan
Love is energy flowing. It’s action. The real reason you love someone, if the love is genuine is because of their energy… the energy of their soul. You may be attracted by appearance or something else. But genuine love is not about a great body, a bank account, a car, or anything else but energy… the spirit of the energy from the heart and soul is what really attracts those to one another graced with the God given ability to know genuine love… “
In love, two opposites can come together to create perfection.
Peace is not the absence of conflict, it’s the ability to cope living with it.
“One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.” Paulo Coelho
“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.” Bruce Lee
“If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws, you can love other people so much better. And that makes you so happy.” Kristin Chenoweth
“There is only one kind of love, but there are a thousand imitations.” Francois de La Rochefoucauld
