Five(5) Natural Emotions - Love

I saved the best for last!

LOVE.

The BEST NATURAL EMOTION WE HAVE.

When you were allowed to express and receive it, without conditions or limitations, without embarrasement or inhibition, it does not REQUIRE anything more. When as a child you were made to believe that having love is not okay, that to express it is wrong - you will have a very difficult time dealing with love when you grow up.

Yet LOVE which has been conditioned, limited, controlled, manipulated, and withheld becomes unnatural. Love repressed becomes possesiveness a very unnatural emotion.

Love is meant to be UNLIMITED, FREE and ETERNAL. True love means no "obligations" for it is always FREE... an obligation cannot exist in the space of love. See to it, that your decision of love is not a PROMISE made once but as a CHOICE made over and over... and resentment will never come.

Love should be UNCONDITIONAL.

This would mean loving everyone regardless of what they believe in, regardless of what they do. You give love freely.... no-matter-what.
If we deny love that is given to us, if we refuse to give love because we fear pain or loss, then our lives will be empty, our loss greater. - Author Unknown

You do not forsake and ignore someone because he/she have wronged you.... When you say "I LOVE YOU", fret not if you will not hear it back. And if you hear it back, DO NOT WORRY THAT YOU WOULD LOSE IT.

When you TRULY LOVE.... it is FOREVER. It never goes away... nor does it fades... you simply LOVE. Love is the energy that allows us to EXPAND, to OPEN UP, to SHARE, to CARE, and to HEAL.

This UNCONDITIONAL LOVE understands.... This UNCONDITIONAL LOVE conquers everything.

This love recognizes the beauty of everything.. This is the natural expression and response we have that REQUIRES NOTHING and DOES NOT EXPECT ANY OUTCOME.

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. - Buddha

But remember before you can love the people around you... you must learn to LOVE YOURSELF. Because, how can you say you love other people if you do not even love yourself ? It is like helping someone who does not want to be help himself/herself in the first place anyway.

Love yourself... then love other people unconditionally. :)
It is not how much you do, but how much Love you put into the doing that matters. - Mother Teresa
Do things with love. Cook with love, clean with love, and serve with love.

LOVING is the HIGHEST VALUE. :)

If you do everything with love..... you would overlook all the imperfections and ugliness... instead you would see the perfection and beauty of everything.

and I will let all the great people talk about love.....

If we make our goal to live a life of compassion and unconditional love, then the world will indeed become a garden where all kinds
of flowers can bloom and grow.


- Dr. Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross, Late Author of On Death and Dying

As you continue to send out love, the energy returns to you in a regenerating spiral... As love accumulates, it keeps your system in balance and harmony. Love is the tool, and more love is the end product. - Sara Paddison, Hidden Power of the Heart

Our true identity is to love without fear and insecurity. Our higher potential finds us when we set our course in that direction. The power of love and compassion transforms insecurity. - Doc Childre

Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much perfoms much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well. -Vincent Van Gogh

I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love. You feel it in your heart. It is the common fiber of life, the flame of that heats our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives. It is our connection to God and to each other. - Elizabeth Kubler Ross


Much has been said about LOVE already.... and of course we all have different experiences and HAVE SOOO MUCH to share about this. (even me.. I have soo much in my mind and heart that I want to impart but then... I guess not now.)
