This whole fuss with Love is so simple even though we build extreme amount of passion and drama about it. Many books, films and other pieces of art have been made over the centuries about either the longing for or the expression of desire and love.
Not realizing that actually the very longing we all share steams from our mutual experience of loss. Though we do not remember it, all the drama and the whole importance sacrificed on the subject of love comes down to only but one reason; that is wanting to regain our feeling of being loved and expressing love at the same instance.
At the end of the day what we all want when searching after Love in one way or another is to rejoin with our true source of Love and experience this via being loved and to love the source back in return; an experience that fills the seeker up with Life and exuberance for eternity.
