What is Love? A question that comes next to "What is Life?" I sometimes feel the purpose to my existence is to just realize the meaning and essence of these words. An emotion has profound as Love can never be explained; it was man's greatest sin to coin a word to express an emotion that has an infinite ambit.
Love is the foundation of companionship. A perfect companionship is the right blend of insanity and rationality! As we grow up, we tend to understand love is beyond the initial attraction, it requires maturity, understanding, tolerance, openness, acceptance, concern, respect, passion among others. Two people come together cause they believe there is a commonality on which their life could tread, but with time doesn't the intensity of love fade away? Individuals grow, interests change and hence to keep the love alive, it is just not enough to bank on the initial common grounds. It is at this juncture the other facets such as openness, tolerance and the ability to see your partner through and the maturity to set them free are essential to keep the relationship young and wild.
I have always believed understanding and intellectual cohesion is vital to keep the relationship going beyond the honeymoon period. It is indeed true, but one aspect of love never outweighs another. If the aspects of love had to be placed on a scale beginning with physical attraction to intellectual coherence, each aspect takes equal importance. Exploration is the key in love, it enables us to discover not just our partner but ourself, helping us grow together. The new aspects spice up the love! To be in love is to be the chirpy bird - buoyant & carefree!
Love never fades, it is the people who fail to grow in love. To love is to be naughty and curious as a 16 year old with the maturity, wisdom and cognizance of a 60 year old.
Be naughty, Be understanding - Be in Love!
