“In a bitter world, one drop of true love is an ocean in the desert.”
Love is indeed the most powerful force. It can take us to great heights and leave us light and airy. Yet it has been the most abused and misused force. Many degraded things pass for love.
There is a popular song which states that “What the world needs now is love – sweet love”. What the world actually needs is an accurate and a correct understanding of love. True love is based on understanding, mutual trust and respect, not simply on emotions.
Love is being in balance; that is, in harmony with the self, God and our fellow men. Love is selflessness. Love is not an emotional state confined to whims and fancies, but a transcendent state of consciousness which goes beyond the bodily forms. Love has nothing to do with bodies; love dwells in the soul.
We must allow our love to flow out and around us. By allowing our love to flow, we become moistened and remain forever fresh, attractive and healthy. Without love, all of life’s treasures are locked away from our vision and experiences, for indeed “Love is the key”.
