In order to hear Love’s words

In order to hear Love’s words, you must allow Love to approach.

However, when it does draw near, we fear what it might say to us, because Love is free and is not ruled by our will or by what we do.

All lovers know this, but refuse to accept it. They think they can seduce Love through submission, power, beauty, wealth, tears and smiles.

True Love, however, is the love that seduces and will never allow itself to be seduced.

Love transforms, love heals.

We are used to thinking that what we give is the same as what we receive, but people who love, expecting to be loved in return, are wasting their time.

Love is an act of faith, not an exchange.

Contradictions are what make love grow. Conflicts are what allow love to remain by our side.

Life is too short for us to keep important words, for example, ‘I love you’, locked in our hearts.

  1. So true! Telling people I love them and appreciate them is very difficult for me, but I constantly push myself to do so. I never know if I’ll have the chance to do it again, and there’s no good reason NOT to say so. If someone can somehow be upset by being told someone loves them, then that’s their problem and not yours. And I’d rather not have the guilt of wondering “what if I had told them…” sitting on my shoulders. In fact I just finished sending a friend a heartfelt message filled with love and gratitude, simply for their being them, and I feel wonderful for it. 🙂
