Love is a human trait. Being loved in return proves success at being human. Not everyone gets to experience being loved. However, for those who do there is no better feeling in the entire world. Love is something that is fleeting, emotional, and full of risk. Love is also something which may stand the test of time, or be gone five minutes from now.
At its essence, love is. And, is given unconditionally.
The why is rarely the same from individual to individual. Often love evolves as small isolated actions are recognized and brought into a gestalt focus. Although almost impossible to define, the entire experience is undeniable to those who experience the actions.
If you do not identify the experience from another, it does not necessarily mean love is not there. It only means the reception may be poor or not focused. For some reason, and managed by higher forces in the universe, love is there for most. The strange thing is that love almost never happens where we expect it to.
The scariest part of love, it is quiet. To experience love you need to open yourself to emotional dangers. Becoming defenseless to any danger is not a normal human trait. Not knowing the outcome to be positive or negative, each party stands in emotional danger. True love is best taken slowly and built layer upon layer.
Love builds the bonds over time that are stronger than any other substance known today. Love is more precious than gold or jewels. Mainly because love is so much harder to find and flourish.
For all the hazards and pitfalls of the trail to real love, there is nothing like it and nothing better anywhere.
I highly recommend it.
