Love, Actually!! 2

Consider the earlier blog as a prelude to the mystery I am about to unravel. A man develops his unique personality through his life and the experiences which he accounts for in this journey. In his quest for a partner to share and understand, he socializes and comes across various people who he influences and who influence him. He tries to identify the one soul who he connects with in thoughts and ideas. Point to get across here is, not just the other person's similarities with himself but the capacity to live "their" common ideas and the pleasure they can get out of living the way they believe in.

Do they have the capacity to lose themselves in a convoluted crowd and find happiness in one another while still preserving their identities? Who is the first person that comes to their mind who they think can love them the way they love themselves? Does someone's presence around you give you a sense of exhilaration and thankfulness for both his existence and yours?

I believe that love is a feeling which craves for best in someone with a simultaneous drive to give your best. If it can give a new meaning to life, its risks and its ability to produce and successfully attain new and higher dimensions, that's what is true passion and true love. Its not a mere meeting of the hearts but a meeting of the minds. If he/she is the one person you want to hold in your arms and who gives you the feeling that you deserve your share of happiness no matter what the world thinks; if a word from that person makes you feel justified in your actions and if one kiss from that person can give you the warmth in this frigid existence - trust me, you have found your soul-mate.

Life is not mere existence. Its about unraveling the mystery it presents at every corner. Nothing better than a person who shares your enthusiasm for life - no more, no less.

Love, Actually!!

Don't be surprised at the title and don' expect a rendition or a critic of the movie with this name....just a collection of my thoughts on the topic. Well, where do I begin. A dictionary meaning to start out with: a feeling of closeness and understanding. Perhaps, this definition has provoked many to consider the first person towards whom one has the first pang of the above feelings mentioned to make him/her the only subject of her/his affections. And affections considered in isolation never smoke out, though it should definitely make one wonder whether such affections are unique or can be duplicated upon another human.

Also there is no absurdity in duplication as it has been stated very solemnly in the holy testament - "Love thy neighbor". Well, here the question arises: do you wish to spend your entire life in the company of your neighbor ;) Just a slight humor but to get the point across. So we come to the conclusion that it is not too difficult to love considering that every person in this world is a true Christian or of any faith (Anyways every faith does exhort love as the pinnacle of human glory). Now we are left with that one person (provided we find him/her) with whom the equation is slightly albeit uniquely different. Don't wink, as I have not messed with the words. Remember that every feeling is different in some way or other. Let us make an effort in understanding love now that we know what we are looking for....

Have you missed being with someone? Has anyone eclipsed your life so much that you see a hollow in your existence? I know it is tough to imagine but one has to make a decision. What I feel and experienced is that longer the time gap of meeting someone who you really love and want to spend your life with, the bitter you get at circumstances which have made you part company. You tend to appreciate the importance of that single person in your life and in entirety understand the concept of love. So, in essence, sometimes distances bring out the true nature of relationships and enable you to come to a decision about who you want to be with and what you want from life. So wait for such a situation (a situation, which is bound to happen sooner than later in this fast paced world) and you will know the true nature of your affections.

Hope everyone finds the love of their life....I myself am on this adventure....
