Thought of the Day August 25, 2012



So a good friend of mine today said to me, 'Everyone has someone out there for them'. I thought about that statement a lot after it was said. Wondering what it, the statement itself meant, and what then the person who said it meant by it as well.





What if we miss that person. In passing because we are so focused on other aspects of life at the time, we totally do not see the best thing that could happen, in terms of a partner? What if what we are looking for is right in front of us, but we are blind to seeing it?



Love is something so powerful. I would even go down to say that something even as much as compassion is powerful itself as well. Love allows for us to wake up everyday with a smile on our face. It allows for us to take everything that is horrible in our life, all of the bad things that are going on and forget about them all. Love allows humans temporary amnesia for all of our issues. Yet sometimes all of our issues involve love itself. So then I ask, what type of love does it take to make you smile? What does it take for you to wake up everyday and move forward?



We allow love and life to become a grand adventure ready for the taking. Something that I love, something that allows all other issues of life, to just go to the way side, to disappear for the moment.



Do we fall in love, not necessarily with a person, but with an aim, an ambition, a passion. What would be your reason to wake up every morning with a smile? But then I ask, how do you know that this is the thing that you really love to create this emotional apathy for happiness?





"There seems to be a kind of order in the universe, in the movement of the stars and the turning of the earth and the changing of the seasons, and even in the cycle of human life. But human life itself is almost pure chaos. Everyone takes his stance, asserts his own rights and feelings, mistaking the motives of others, and his own."



~Katherine Anne Porter






Why do we always want those moments that we think, dream, and wish for to happen.... those moments of love itself? A lot of people say, “Nothing is perfect.” But really, a lot of things are perfect. If you have low self-worth, the perfect relationship is the one that shows you why it’s important to have self-worth. Difficult circumstances are only wrong if you don’t appreciate what they can teach you about life and about yourself. If you cannot see that the bad parts of life are what always make the good parts the best they can possible be.



I think once we have experienced loved, we always have this craving for it when it is not around us. It is part of the reason why we do things that will actually be bad for us in the long run, so we can get a fix on the drug that it is. Sometimes people are in love with the idea of being in love instead of being in love with the person they are with.






Have you ever been torn? Not knowing what to do, or how to make a choice even? I think love is one of the Emotionals that allows for a person to feel this way. It can make us blind to something that is right in front of us, and blind to what something really is all at the same time. And on of the only other Emotionals that has this same property is that of Fear. Would this indicate that Love and Fear both have roots into the same system placements of human emotions?



How do you know what love is? Why does this emotion have different levels of acceptance? Meaning you can love something a little, or a lot. We are allowed to give a level of love to something.  Would it not be defined by itself and a specific level all together, or do we have to allow for the variances that we tend to use this term as?






Does the term even represent the emotional itself? And if so, How Do You Know?



Until next time, A moment of time.

Love is not about sex, going on fancy dates, or showing off. It’s about being with a person who makes you happy in a way nobody else can.
