Love in its sweetness is measured not by romance; chocolate is tasteless, sweet-smelling roses are obnoxious, and love songs are even melancholic if the effort therein is wantonly shed without dedication and conviction. Love is not love if it doesn’t take risks for the beloved. For love’s gauge sought and through the ages found, that toils and tears had taught, carves the heart wisdom; that after love is life! Thus, living is made profound. The purity of love would only mean choosing to love, even selflessly taking risks. For risking makes life meaningful and sweet. Be dauntless then, for the purity of our love is loving lavishly, and that is a true wealth in abundance.
Remember to keep love in purity, for love is a fire that annihilates the nauseating, unreasonable, and egoistic immaturity in us. It shutters away the childish fool in us. It turns our concern no longer for the self but for the beloved as the other self. It purifies in us the gem of our truest value. It makes us more sublime to be heroic in all life’s undertakings. The rekindling fire of love teaches us life’s greatest lesson: the authentic search for the “why-to-love.” If only it is clear to us why we love, and why we keep on loving unconditionally, we will always find ways in all of life’s “But’s, If’s, and How’s.” We will always find solutions to every problem that we encounter if only we are committed and convicted to the reasons of our love.
Love is the reasonable cause, and if committed into it, love can be deadly and more outrageous. But the fear of life’s struggles can never infringe on us because that why-to-love is the very core and foundation of our plans, and dreams. It brings us even in our waking up every morning. Love as the reason for living is life itself. It is the living breath that zealously animates the timid, weak, and even the most shuttered hearts. Keep this in mind, in our lives, anything material come and go, the physical beauty and attraction fades, and even money and fame can corrupt; what only unites is that of spiritual value, like that of honesty, justice, righteousness, integrity and the like.
But the mother of them all is love.
