We all have our own translation of what love is, but historically there are 7 types of love;
Eros, Phillia, Agape, Storge, Ludus, Pragma and Philautia. The most popular type of love being “Agape” and/or “Eros”. I stumbled upon the types of love as a little kid while researching on how colors affect our mood (I was a really curious kid). It was life changing for me, but it still didn’t define love for me on a larger scale.
Loving kindness is a profound recognition that our lives have something to do with one another, that everyone counts and everyone matters. That with a little act of kindness, we can spread a multitude of love without even knowing it.
Patience does not mean to passively endure. It means to be farsighted enough to trust the end result of a process. What does patience mean? It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience means to be so shortsighted as to not be able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never run out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full. (Based on the Forty rules of love)
Selflessness doesn’t mean laying down your life for just anything but for a cause. For someone who is worth it and still feels no regrets or remorse. We have somehow depicted that in either our love life with our spouses, family or friendship. This is an act that I have learnt, putting people first but also learning when it’s appropriate without bending over backwards without breaking.
The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt, caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough and that they didn't invest enough heart and love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.(Ted Hughes)
So believe in your heart that you're meant to live a life full of passion, purpose, magic and miracles.
