Recognising Love

While surfing on the net, looking for some nice quotes, I came across one which touched me by its simplicity in expressing something I have been wanting to put into words for a while now.

“It’s so easy, To think about Love, To Talk about Love, To wish for Love, But it’s not always easy, To recognize Love, Even when we hold it…. In our hands.” –Jaka

There are always big talks about love. I am referring to the romantic kind of love here. The other person who is supposed to make you feel great and happy. The other meaningful soul, the one with whom you feel whole. Some people have experienced the *real* thing. Others say they are still waiting for the *right* one to come along. Also, there are others who say they *don’t believe* in that forever kind of love. Yet, others will say love break hearts, causes tears and isn’t worth it. All in all, we all really think about love and talk about love and sometimes even yearn for it.

All that of course is easy. One can sit down and imagine how the *perfect* love is, right? I do it myself loads of time. πŸ˜‰ Others can blab for hours about their different experiences. And we all want to be loved. Anyone who denies that is a *fool*. πŸ˜› But as the quote carries on, it is not always easy to recognise love. How does that happen? Why can’t we see it? It says in the quote, “even when we hold it in our hands”… Isn’t that totally crazy? Why can’t we recognise the one person who is supposed to love us truly? The *One*?

We all know how many love stories end so bitterly. Why? This is where I think this quote is totally true. We can’t recognise the real thing. We fancy ourselves in love,and we go overboard and are so happy… but when that phase is over, what remains? bitterness? anger? *nothing?*

In my personal opinion, true love is what remains after that surging fire you feel at first dies away…What remains after that utter happiness we think no one can destroy…love is what remains after the first intoxications, addictions. Many couples break up because they lose that *special* feeling, right?

There is a big difference, I think, between being *in love* and to simply *love*. Being in love fades away after some time. Loving someone stays forever. πŸ™‚ That is why quotes like the one I have mentioned here exist. Those people who have said it must have seen it or experienced it. It wasn’t said just to be famous, hmm?

So, if after the sweet madness of being in love is over and you find out, there is nothing left except frustration, anger and bitterness, tell yourself it was not the real thing. Love is not supposed to be like that. You simply had a terrible attraction and now it is over.

Love is finding out, after that sweet madness I mentioned, that you are so into each other that you cannot imagine your life without one another. You see in the other person a part of your true self. You simply *complete* each other. πŸ™‚ It is about everything *after*.

Those who have found that know real happiness I suppose. Some people keep looking for it and still fail to recognise it. There are also those who don’t look for it, but who recognised it and do not do anything about it…they simply let it go…complex hmm? because they are scared about the *intensity*? of the *dependence?* of the *disbelief*? I for one can hardly know! πŸ˜›

Bottom line I say love is a beautiful thing…another quote goes by saying: “Love is the beauty of the soul.” It is *truly*.

    I want to reply to your question:
    – Let’s assume X has a true love for Y.
    – Y cannot recognize it.

    This is simply because X has the capability to make every single steps or any single action (which will affect Y) appear so wonderful and with ease. Y hence barely notice it. Just image when you are happy, are you able to realize or observe your environment? The answer is NO. And now when this happiness is triggered perfectly (yes true loves have that skill), you won’t even feel the most simple thing – i.e your happiness is being cared for!

    But there’s one hint which might suggest that X loves Y deeply. The factor of “care” comes into play and more often you might find the eyes of X glittering.

    But once again, it might take Y very long to decrypt that love,if not unlikely, since true love is simply to love beyond limit, without any expectations and simply to see “your beloved one happy whatever happens”

    PS: It was fun reading this article and it made me relax and evade reality for a moment. Thanks for this wonderful time.. And the quote has more hidden meanings and possibilities that you can imagine. It’s just a matter of angles. πŸ˜›

    Looking forward for some more wonderful post from you πŸ˜‰


  4. @ Wass: thnks for the answer. Tho here too it is a matter of “angle” πŸ˜›
    Sometimes X has to risk it. But not overdo it. You might never know when Y can acknowledge X πŸ˜›

    @ Keveen: you are as stupid as ever! πŸ˜› ti bizin laisse toi ataC ek sa pied la em!

    @ z others: nice comments! πŸ˜‰

    Aaaaaahhh, I forgot about the possibility of ‘Y actually acknowledging X’ πŸ˜› It’s cool to hear that πŸ˜€
