January 15th - To know you is to love you
For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.
We all had to experience a lot of different things in order to get to the point in our lives that we are today. We were born knowing little of anything. We had to learn what love was. To know what it was about in order to give it and receive it.
We had to try out a lot of different foods in order to know if we loved them or not. I’ve read a lot of books but I know I haven’t loved all of them.
No matter how long we may live, we’ll never stop learning. Every minute of every day brings new opportunities to learn something we've never known before.
There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I know a few things about love:
Love doesn’t hurt. If it hurts it’s something else. Fear. Attachment. Idolatry. Addiction. Possessiveness.
Jealousy isn’t love, nor is it evidence of love. Jealousy is fear. Love doesn’t drive people mad, it drives them sane.
If you say you Love someone because of what they can give you, that’s not Love, that’s selfishness.
Love is letting go because no one feels loved when they are controlled or manipulated.
Love is a sharing a circle of close friends who are generous, faithful and attentive.
Love is a lifetime of shared experiences that continually redefines what love is.
We can only love what we know, and we can never know completely what we do not love. Love is a mode of knowledge…
