55 Characteristics of Love

55 CHARACTERISTICS OF LOVE

What is love?

Love is something that we as physical beings will never be able to fully comprehend. The word is commonly tossed around and often assumed to be known by many.  Some people spend their whole lives searching for the meaning of an “emotion,” whose true properties are consistently concealed by projections of influenced minds. Love has been misinterpreted for so long, it is no wonder we as human beings lack the capacity to fathom its true meaning in our personal lives.

  • Check out my comments on this post, We are All Alien, Chasing Love, as I explain the negative impact of monotony in our lives.
  • I just found a beautiful article on Wayne Dyer’s blog – Make Love Your Habit.  He explains things very simply, yet the meaning behind his words are so powerful.

Love is the beauty that surrounds you – find it!

Man as House – C.S. Lewis

Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.

~C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
