Reflections on the Nature of Love

Considering that the dawn of humankind, we have been exploring, experiencing, and trying to break the secret code of love. Much of us appear to have forgotten that in the earlier days, free love was a deficiency. From aristocrats to slaves, marriages as well as partnerships were commonly offered as commands and options of people in higher power and authority for political, religious, material as well as personal gains. Hence, there are the wonderful love catastrophes of “” Romeo and Juliet”” and “” Abelard and Heloise””, along with numerous others who were heedlessly maltreated for their innocent expression of love. These terrible romance left most of us asking yourself, why is it so hard to love as well as what is like to experience that depth of love?

Free will love has actually made much progression in the 21st century through the development of human beings’ love experiences, technological development, and also social adjustments. In today’s more liberal cultures, individuals are offered the liberty to select and also express their admirations and wishes to the subjects of their love with little or no effects. Nonetheless, in cultures where we can freely pick whom we intend to enjoy, we have experienced a boost in divorce rate, a decrease in marriage rate, as well as even more people delaying marital relationship for different reasons.

Duality of Love

Yet regardless whether we comply with the “” Abelard and Heloise”” love model of ‘complying with one to the end of the Hell’ to ‘you are simply among the 100 people that I am seeing and also what is your name once more?’, we experience the universal problems of satisfaction and also pains, the integrating, as well as the ultimate disintegration of love as well as partnerships, no matter how little or how much we love. No matter just how much riches as well as power one has, one is still subject to others’ psychological and physical transgressions.

So, if we know the utmost end to any kind of love and also relationship, why are we still relentlessly seeking love, whether it remains in the kind of a fully commited virginal partnership or copulating as lots of people as we can? What is it that we seek in our teens, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and up to the moment of our fatality? As well as if we are to recall at our lives, would we be sorry for the times we did not try tougher, the people we have actually harmed, as well as the majority of unpleasant of all, we quickly released that person that awakens our soul, just to learn so far too late.

Enjoyments and also pains are the twin bros of love. We can not expect one and also not the other. We assume we be worthy of God-like love and it is someone else’s responsibility to make us happy. If we want God-like love, after that we should place in God-like job. If we are not going to open our hearts to experience reasonings, disappointments, and also pains in experiencing love, how can we ask for a love that brings us joy? If we are not ready to overcome our egos as well as karmic conditionings, how we can manifest a love that brings us implying? If we are not ready to heal our hearts’ inmost wounds, how can we expect to live without discomfort?
