Listening to various individuals throughout my life I have noticed a great number of them express how afraid of LOVE they are or how Falling in LOVE is not a good thing. Why do we avoid LOVE so much? Why do we fear it? Isn’t LOVE the ‘Greatest of them ALL?’ Why is LOVE seen as such a THREAT!
I understand that Falling in LOVE or LOVING can be scary because there is the definite risks of getting hurt, acquiring a ‘broken Heart’ or not having the LOVE that you give be returned to you but isn’t that the Beauty of it? Allowing yourself to be totally open to what is going to come as you open your Heart to ALL of the possibilities of LOVE, with no guarantees of things turning out the way you want. It’s the same as FAITH! As humans, we take bigger chances, bigger risks with all manner of other things, from money, to careers, to partnerships. Even risking our lives doing those things that are not seen as safe but when it comes to LOVE…’You Better Watch Out! We don’t want to get caught up in that…’
Looks like the ‘Greatest of them ALL’ is also seen as the ‘Most Unsafe of them ALL.’ I imagine that opening one’s Heart or simply, being open to LOVE is just too much of a risk for most people. The thoughts of Vulnerability…Letting another in…Sharing one’s weaknesses as well as strengths…Allowing oneself to share their total ‘SELF’ is too much. It’s just not the ‘norm’ in today’s Society.
Man…Woman…We need to change our perspectives and not see LOVE as a THREAT but as Beautiful and as Great. See it as something we want and not something we have to avoid. We have been so tainted by Man’s way of LOVE and his way of how LOVE should be that we have contracted amnesia and forgotten that LOVE is from GOD and LOVE is HIS Essence. LOVE is GOD! We need it. And, if we face our Hearts, we truly ‘WANT’ it and we know that LOVE is what will fill the voids in our lives.
LOVE is not THREATENING…Its Amazing and ‘The GREATEST of them ALL’ and we should ALL see it as such.
