:: Part 13 – Thoughts on Love ::

I had this conversation with someone recently

A conversation about love

I asked, “how does one know when one

Is in love?”

“And how does one know if this is the

Right love, the one that will

Last forever?”

The person replied, “You know

You are in love when you find

Life has no more meaning when the

Person you love is not with you.”

I thought about what he said.

I think I will be upset if the person is no

Longer around or no longer with me,

But I am of the belief that humans adapt.

Especially with the passage of time.

Notwithstanding, having experienced a few

Relationships, (and hopefully, clearer about

What I need and want for a relationship),

I think that one falls in love initially,

Like an infatuation, and like wine.

One chooses, and one decides.

Whether to down the sweet wine in a

Single gulp, or to choose to keep it

For a lifetime, to sip it as it grows sweeter.

To love forever – that must be of a

Conscious choice.

u seem to be musing alot... you ar eon holiday now so try to take in more of your surroundings ya?

I think I've written more in my Moleskin, but it is rather time-consuming to transfer all the content to livejournal form.

hmmmm no wonder. but i guess being in zurich makes u wanna write more. its all about the ambience i say. haha

I think it is about having more time to sit down and write. Heh.
But you are right. The ambience helps.

Now u r getting me impatient to go for my trip n spend some quality time in central park... Lol

True love is when you STOP sacrificing for the other.
Sacrificing is self-centered and focus on the pain of YOU.

When you love someone, you just offer out of pure love.
You don't see it as a sacrifice and you remove the Self from the equation.

Thus you won't feel hurt even if your effort is not reciprocated or appreciated.

It's the same for lovers, close friends and family (eg. mother and son).

So start loving and stop sacrificing. :)

liked. good to see u blogging more often these days...
