What is love? ;)

Today my friend was very curious to know if there was something called “prepone” as her Irish team mate was sure there wasn’t anything like that. I said we do have a word prepone .. though the dictionary doesn’t really recognize it. To prove myself correct, I googled for the word… and when I did a define space in the search box and I saw a list of items for define (thanks to AJAX! … but I’m not going to talk about AJAX here) ... the first item in the dropdown list was love! :)

How can you define love? It really amused me that there could be definitions for love. But I’ll try to define love here, from my experiences ;) … love is something to be felt. I’m not really a proponent of the love-@-first-sight theory. If love were to happen at first sight, then its not defined love … that’s attraction… now attraction might or might not lead to love. Why I say this is b/c if you truly want to love somebody, your mind needs to hit the beach and your heart needs to do all the talking ... when mind rules there cannot be love … there can only be calculations … b/c the mind is taught or groomed that way… it takes courage to use the heart and be totally innocent and see no present, past, future of a relationship… only when you are truly open, can you feel love…. I don’t propose that you need to be totally dumb when to fall in love… ofcourse you can have some of your preferences… but what really matters in the end is genuineness. To find a genuine person is so difficult in today’s world… b/c the mind does all the talking. Mind is result oriented whereas heart is pure and innocent. Mind wants things to be manufactured … to be so perfect… heart accepts flaws and is genuine…

Would like to quote Osho here – Millions of people are suffering: they want to be loved but they don't know how to love. And love cannot exist as a monologue; it is a dialogue, a very harmonious dialogue.

I'm fortunate like my friend to be in love ... not once but many a times ;)
