“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage” ~ Lao Tzu
In life, love is the most unexplained. Causing madness and beauty. Chaos and empires. It lives in the sphere of heart and life. We are bound by it, born from it and to it we all may return.
This is love..
We all find love sometimes. Often, when we are least looking. It overpowers us, moves us through ourselves into another soul, if only for a season. Other times, love finds us. But this happens much more suddenly.
This love takes us up in a wind, a soaring of hearts bound by cosmic collision. It rips us from the Earth and grounds us in heaven, moving above ourselves all the while. We forget our own life and become entranced by another.
Love like this becomes the torrent of the heart as the beat of life in our chests is replaced by the sound of another’s voice, by the undying want of their simple touch and by the mirror of our own soul in their eyes.
This simple passion grows as the wildfire, untamed, moving beyond the forest and over bare ground, not by wind, but by the force of two hearts longing for each other.
You know you’ve found this love when the sound of the world grows dim, and all you hear or see or care for is found in this one beautiful soul, in this one moment of time that sweetens each day in a simple thought. This love is pure, untamed, unscripted, beyond time and without end.
In life, I’m happy to know this love. I’m lucky to have felt this primordial beat within my heart. And I look forward to each day that I feel born into the world with soft eyes, looking only for this love to be lying next to me.
A love like this, some say, may make us crazy…
But is it crazy to love?
Or is love itself simply crazy?
I say, in a crazy world, find the love that holds you like a fist. Find the love that makes you travel backwards. Find the love that makes your knees collapse, the love that makes you stumble, trip and fall. Find the love that makes you collide with life.
Find this love…
Find the one you know you cannot live without.. And, if you’re lucky enough..
You’ll Go crazy.

Very true! This is what love is.
This kind of love requires a lot of courage
What a wonderful way to talk about love! You are perfectly right. This is how love is and when you find it, or it found you, it’s worth every moment. If I could have one wish fulfilled in this life, that would be to grant all humans the love I have found. The one that makes you beam, glow, levitate and build. The one that makes you sleep peacefully and confidently, like a beloved child. The one that makes you feel that you’re ombilically connected with your loved one.
Absolutely! Perfect description.. and happy you have found this in your life. Best wishes
What a beautiful post! I’ve been blessed to find just such a love myself, and it’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced. This kind of love can truly change a person’s life, and somehow it just keeps getting better ❤
Indeed! I too am amazed that the kind of love you describe can, at least in my case, nearly 25 years. May yours last that long as well !
