Love...what is it?

In the past, I have written a blog or even possibly blogs about love and what is it. As I am listening to past radio episodes, a prominent Father says that love is something that can run out of a person. He essentially, from my understanding says, that once you love one person, you run out of love after that and it is difficult to give out love again....if not impossible.

In the past, I believe that many, including myself with the original post and comments and remarks maybe touched on love and its characteristics....but maybe not love itself. dunno This Father describes as a sort of energy....a real thing. He also refers to God as love.


Well...

we have a lot of unrest today

along with a lot of divorce.

dunno

Just some speculation.

Is it possible in the search for love again...it is easy to slip into lust.

...because the energy of love has already been exhausted...


dunno

It depends on your legacy-whether that runs out.

legacy....is that something to do with a spiritual side of one person or the perception of one person from one or others.
Johnny_Sparton
certainly I will say....there seems to be a flow of lustful imagery being involuntarily forced down our throats. dunno

You mean you get kind of a knee jerk reaction whenever Usha pops up.

No worries-you will have the best night's sleep
since the last time she blogged to Americans.

Love is nothing but maturity. To accept people for who they are. Understand that they are human and can make mistakes. To forgive, forget and keep on loving. If one can let go of I, and focus on love, nothing is impossible.

Hi Johnny. Hope you are keeping safe.

Johnny,

Like that "One Of These Nights" song by the Eagles says,

"I've been searching for the daughter of the Devil himself.
I've been searching for an angel in white.
I've been waiting for a woman who's a little of both,
and I can feel her but she's nowhere in sight.

Cool, huh? guitar groundhog
usha123
Ash, at least my current profile picture is not provocative. laugh

Be safe!

DARN IT! And here I was, hoping for more "provocative" photos from ladies. frustrated
What has prerogative pics got to do with love?
usha123
Sorry Robert, we can't let Johnny slip in to lust.

You can easily go back to dreaming. laugh

Hope you are keeping safe and well.wave

Nothing Merc, Johnny has mentioned some lustful images in his comment. laugh

Love...what is it?

The heck if I know! When you find out, maybe tell me and the rest of us. cheers
Sorry Robert, we can't let Johnny slip in to lust.

Too late.
laugh
Thanks for filling me in for what I missed Usha laugh

I've never been in love..Was once attracted to someone but that's about it.

I presume attraction can lead to love but hey what do I know laugh
Real love is a total understanding of another.
It takes a lot of time and a lot of effort.
Thus dedication is essential.

healthy bank balance nice house flash car ,then love will be all around you ,,
be down on your luck at the bottom of the barrel , and love will walk on by

We tend to believe in the ideas that resonate with us.

Some people really can love only once. Some never forget their first love. Some don't ever experience love at all. Some can love many times - even many partners at the same time.

What others say about love doesn't matter. It matters what we think and feel. smile

And then we can search for a partner who will share our idea of love. smile
Johnny_Sparton
Hello Ms. Usha....I think you hit on an important part with your statement of "letting go of the I."

Maybe once in love each are vulnerable to each other too....therefore trust is important.

Thank you for your perception. thumbs up thumbs up
Johnny_Sparton
Robert....be very careful if you are offering to sell your soul to the devil for a woman....you might just get exactly what you asked for. uh oh

As far as posting this on a blog, that guy should show his kickstand. laugh I don't know first hand, but I am getting the understanding that the blogs are turning into a kickstand show. Robert? You have anything to share to the ladies yourself? rolling on the floor laughing

cheers
Johnny_Sparton
Merc....I think many of these provocative pictures, that seem to be everywhere, are conditioning people to focus more on the superficial than the depth of one's being. dunno Can one fall in love with the superficial? Or is that lust? dunno I think it might be easy to follow a path of lust if one's "love energy" has been reduced. Lust will still leave you empty....Love will leave you complete.

dunno

Hello Merc...

I am not being judgmental here....just entertaining a thought and looking to possibly explore it deeper....dunno dunno

But...I just checked your profile and your religion status...


Then I overlay that with your comment:

"I've never been in love..Was once attracted to someone but that's about it.

I presume attraction can lead to love but hey what do I know laugh"



You make a great statement by presuming that attraction can lead to love....and I feel that is worth exploring too. But, I would think just attraction is a form of lust. dunno But, love does have to start from somewhere....maybe for some it is attraction. dunno

Now to your religious status and your comment....the Father says that God is love....if one is not particularly aligned with God....can that prevent love from being born? dunno Again...just possibly exploring things deeper.

Me personally, I am a person that allows people to explore their own free will as they choose...so it makes no personal difference to me what one's religion is...(as a disclaimer).

Hello Jim,

I totally agree. I would think that love does include all of those things that you mention. What what you say, it does lead to a certain vulnerability with each other. However, with our new social movement will underway, it might seem that one gender is no longer willing to become as vulnerable to the other sex as they once did in the past. dunno Possibly making the dynamics of love a little more difficult to experience in this day and age. dunno

Anyway...

Thank you Jim.

....sorry Usha....wave grin (gotta give you a wave too...grin )
Johnny_Sparton
Hello Edison, something tells me...you and Robert share similar opinions. laugh

You give it 5 or 10 more years, and the other gender might be saying the exact identical thing. Heck, you might even hear that even sooner than that. Women these days are making some great money at their careers and jobs....and good for them too. But, as I commented to Jim, it kind of makes them less vulnerable...and I wonder if that does not play a role to with love in some sort of way. dunno

I really like Ms. Serbia's comment though.

It comes down to the individual. She brings up some great points...some individuals have more of a capacity to love than others....in essence. If I am recalling what she said correctly. But, it does make a lot of sense.

It might not be a bad idea to approach a potential relationship one's self with a loving glow inside than with a preconceived notion of something negative. dunno

Aru....I don't think I can add anything to your statement.

thumbs up thumbs up


very well assessed...


I just compare what you said with the traits of people who I have met throughout my life and I cannot find any discrepancies with what you say.

@Johnny_Sparton

I don't think that money can buy you love. It can buy you companionship, sex, adventure, but love? Not really. Love is "for better and worse" and not just when everything is fine.

I think that rich people (both men and women) are vulnerable in a way we, ordinary people, aren't. They are never sure why their partners are with them and whether they are really loved or just used because they have money. They often attract people who want to use them and rarely meet people who would be interested in them personally. So, even if they open to love, they have a big chance to end up hurt and used. Then, when they are unhappy or have some problems - nobody takes them seriously. People don't show much compassion toward rich people. They are much more lonely than others. If they go with the flow and start to use money to buy people's affection - in time they become cruel and unkind and incapable to be really happy. They cannot open to love any more.

Everything has its upside and downside...
Aruena
And...

I hope you are fine. smile

Stay safe! wave

The Greatest Gift
13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Hi JS wave
ashlander
I do not want to seem unkind but several woman here get unwanted attention from a person who pervs many -but at the same time considers himself quite the catch.

With all his panting after the women he does not deem worthy of his respect or love it is hard to imagine any woman would feel valued or not apprehensive of his behaviour in person.



dunno

What is it that doesn't take the best of both but the worst?
