If it is visible, it is sure to fade. If it is subtle and is reflected in every moment of your life, then it tends to last. To understand your love, ask yourself some questions. Love is everywhere, but is manifested in different ways. What is the love of your life; is it just romance?
To understand your love, ask yourself these questions – do you love ‘the feeling of love’, or you love ‘another person the way he is’, or you love ‘the other person the way you see him’, or you love ‘being loved’… Which one of these are you experiencing right now?
It’s true that, only when there is love, there is life. And, love need not always be between life partners. It has a multitude of dimensions. A scientist who spends most of his life in lab to discover something useful for humanity is driven by his love for science. A soldier guarding the border and fighting for his nation is motivated by his love for the nation; otherwise he wouldn’t be able to do his job.
So love is everywhere, but it is manifested in different ways. What is the love of your life; is it just romance? This discussion will be a good introspection for you as well as for others. So don’t shy away, talk!
