Love can be defined as a strong positive emotion of regard and affection and Love can be described as an “Individual and personal caring that goes both beneath and beyond loyalty and respect”. Each of us must be in our own company all of the time, no vacations or breaks... so we must try to grow continually to create in us a person with healthy self esteem, self love, confidence, healthy pride, assurance and self concept. We need to live in a body that's as stress free as we can make it, as healthy in body, mind and spirit as we can ...
Celebrate your wonderful, unique, splendid qualities. You know you have a bunch! Recall each of them, cherish them, and treat yourself because of them you can develop.
Love for friends, neighbors, even adversaries and a prioritized, lifelong commitment of love for family.
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."
I Corinthians 13:4-8a
Love is also written as one of the very first commandment of God in the Bible
An extract from the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran”
“Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself .
Love possesses not nor would be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
When you love you should not say,
“God is in my heart,” but rather, “ I am in the heart of God,”
And think not that you direct the course of love,
for love , if it finds you worthy, direct your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must need have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks to another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart
and a song of praise upon your lips.
