Be Inspired: What is Love?

The word ‘Love’ has different meanings, isn’t it? These days do we care much about its meaning and it’s true value? Sometimes symbolic things mislead us and cast a shadow on the value of this intrinsic principle. Is it not the time to ask these important questions: How many times did we try to represent love with a symbol? Can we use a symbol to represent it?

Before we can properly answer those questions, we have to know what love is. I am sure we do not need much explanation, do we. As because we have all experienced it at different levels. But have you ever thought what is that thing called ‘Love’.

If we explore and search deep inside our self, we will realise that Love is a principle. And principles are self-evident. According to Stephen Covey, “Principles are like lighthouses. They are natural laws that cannot be broken.” We know what happens when we break or try to break this principle. Don’t we?

And we know from our experience if ‘Love’ is a principle it cannot be a symbol. Now can we ask ourselves: What happens when we try to represent ‘Love’ with a symbol for e.g. gifts and presents?

Please do not get me wrong. I am not trying to say that giving gifts and presents is bad. What I am trying to do here is to make you aware of something that is beyond any material thing.

Take sometime and think over it. See what message you receive from this article and whether it can be useful for you. Before I close, I would like to leave you with this beautiful message from Holy Bible, which is one of my favourites.

"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." Corinthians 13:4-5 (New International Version)
