Thought for today:
"Some call it 'madness' but I call it 'love.' If anything in the world was ever responsible for making me believe in magic, it was the power of love. If logic and the head is capable of giving us what we need, then it is left to the magic of the heart to give us what we want. All heart surgeons have always known that love is the flower which you must let grow if you want your life to become meaningful. I guess that I finally grew up when I realised that love was a constant current of mutual affection; not a feeling or act that that one could turn on and off like a tap of convenience.
If love be anything of substance, it is best seen in the commitment of one's mind, heart and soul. Being in love means being dependent; it means turning up, being there and being prepared to do whatever is required. I also learned that all love requires constant nourishment to survive and grow. Stop feeding the object of your love with your attention and your love will gradually die.
To keep love in constant flow, one must learn how to bend in the breeze of discontent, to compromise in moments of contention and how to steer a safe course when the love boat is being pulled in two directions. It also helps if understanding and forgiving are the two life buoys you never throw overboard.
Take this action throughout your relationship and your love for each other shall remain wild, free and constant. In many ways, your love can be likened to a fire that each of you are responsible for either stoking up or allowing to die down and eventually burn out. In the early days of new romance it can burn down your house, but as you adjust to riding in tandem, it will keep your hearth nicely warm by adding the correct type and amount of fuel at the precise moment of need.
Many a relationship has grown the stronger, simply by being there in a moment of uncertainty or need, by saying a few choice words of comfort and consolation, by giving a simple kiss, a caring hug, the holding of a hand, a tender touch of affection or a look of appreciation and understanding.
The best love will plant a fire in our hearts and bring peace to our minds and solace to our souls. It will bring together two pieces that individually shall always amount to no more than 'incomplete,' but which together, makes each one feel more wholesome by the other's presence. This is when love stops being an ideal, a feeling, a hope, an aspiration and purpose in one's life and becomes two people turned one!
Now, that's real magic. That's he story of, that's the glory of love!
