But what is love ?
Love encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states, from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection, to the simplest pleasure.
An example of this range of meanings is that the love of a mother differs from the love of a spouse, which differs from the love of food. Most commonly, love refers to a feeling of strong attraction and emotional attachment.
Love is considered to be both positive and negative, with its virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another” and its vice representing human moral flaw, akin to vanity, selfishness, amour-propre, and egotism, as potentially leading people into a type of mania, obsessiveness or codependency. It may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals. In its various forms, love acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts. Love has been postulated to be a function that keeps human beings together against menaces and to facilitate the continuation of the species.
Is Love Blind?
The most realistic way to explain love is, Love is a “unitive force or a force that unites”, Says Hirav Shah.
When two people are united in a bond of love, whatever kind and at whatever level it is, they are united in some way to one another in this some sort of “force-of-attraction” that unites one to another.
And this unity in attraction always nurtures in the lover and in the beloved an admiration for each other. Of course this attraction and admiration comes from all the elements and points that they see objectively from each other… so they could also see not just the positive points but also the negative ones.
But love assuming in itself some paradox of strength and vulnerability chooses to carry the negative aspects through the positive ones. Meaning when love is strong it can carry more the negative aspects for the reason that true love welcomes, accepts, respects and complements differences and and imperfections. And in this ‘loving environment’ one can truly be free to be oneself and to be vulnerable because one can feel an unconditional choice of being loved in and despite of all his/her flaws.
In Hirav Shah’s words
“Love is blind” could then be taken as a voluntary choice to be blind, meaning love is willing to carry and not to look at or so “to be blind” to all the negative aspects of the actual bond of love and live it with acceptance and forgiveness. Some could look at it in an exterior gaze as being unrealistic, gullible and immature for the one who does that. But in a bond of love, we are always just a spectator because this bond is so intimate to be exposed to outsider’s curiosity.
“And only love can comprehend love“, Quotes Hirav Shah.
Loving From The Heart
When loving someone,
Try to love someone with all your heart so that your soul feels as if it has fulfilled its purpose. Love someone with your eyes closed because good things in life, such as love, are supposed to be felt.
That way you will reach the depths of that person and touch them there.
Love someone in a way which makes them feel free, free to fall in love with you, even twice as much as you do. Love someone so much that you won’t have to worry about who gets an upper hand. You both will be equally willing to compromise. Love someone so much that compromise won’t feel like a compromise. Love someone so much that the loving sets you free.
Love someone not as an option but as a lifestyle that you have for the rest of your life.
“Love someone in a way which teaches you how to love yourself “- Quotes Shah.
Love is more of a whole-body experience than a simple state of mind. Make sure it uplifts you, supports you and leads you to success and your physical and mental well being.
Don’t settle for any relationship that won’t let you be yourself- Hirav Shah Concludes.
