Well, something amazing - love is all around you. Look at your own URL ‘love-exists-everywhere’. I use this phrase myself all the time. It’s so true, and enlightening. Think of this.
The Greek’s had three major forms of love; philia, eros, and agape. Philia was like friendship, like bortherly love. Eros is an erotic form, much the way you feel with a significant other. Agape - and this one I love - is literally a self-sacrificing kind of love. You would die for the person. The biggest example people have of this is Jesus dying on the cross for our sins.
But, in our culture we have one word for love. Love is so broad. So complex. There are multiple facets, there are incredible changes. Yet, we expect it to all be exemplified under one basic word. I never understood how that’s possible. I mean, I find love everyday. Maybe I’m optimistic, or naive. But, I see love in the sunshine. I love the world so much that each day there is a new example of how I love the world. That phrase ‘stop and smell the roses’ is a perfect testimony to this. If we stop, smell the roses - their aromatic scent reminds us that we have love. That it is around us all - all the time.
Next time you make a friend, remember that you are falling in love. Next time you wake up, remember that you are falling in love. Next time you watch the greatest movie ever, remember that you falling in love. Next time you fall in love, remember that it is something special. Something to hold onto. It is remarkable. It is devastating. It is wonderful. It is beautiful. I love it.
