View from the Porch these November days.
The heart has its reasons that reason knows nothing of.
November 15th - Ours is not to reason why…
The most intelligent thing we can do is love, not reason.
There are many things in life that we don't know, and there are many things we may have no interest in finding out. There is freedom in saying, I don’t know. When we admit that we don't know something, we can then open ourselves up to the opportunity to learn.
To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness.
We have somehow learned that there must be a reason or reasons to love someone. So we set up criteria by which we judge those we must love, and those we should exclude from our love. We have learned that there are some who are worthy of love, while others we can ignore.
We have learned to love only those who are like us and at the same time, we’ve learned to close our lives from those who are different from us or we find unlikable for whatever reason. But when we lay aside our prejudices and judgments and open our hearts to those we would like to dismiss, then perhaps, we might just find them to be God’s blessings.
Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
Sometimes we don’t know the reasons why,
but it is always a good idea to give others reasons to try.
