To My Dear Beloved,
Recently my mind enquired about the reasoning about love and this writing is a step towards detailing some of the events which have been going on with my mind. The heading which matters to the reasoning of Love is an oxymoron since Love cannot be reasoned. This thought should be entailed in your mind when you are reading this. You may ask then as to why I am trying to reason Love? The reason is quite far from being explained and the only answer I have is that these thoughts came to my mind and my writing is a reflection and answer to some of the questions which we all share. I shall try to be as simple as possible however I am afraid the writing might be a little long and some intricate in its meaning. I shall try to divide the questions and answers in an attempt to make the writing look simpler and easier to understand. However, I would humbly request your patience in reading the entire writing and reflect on it and not merely brush through it.
Fear: One of the greatest emotions that you encounter when you love a person is fear. Fear ranges from losing the contact of that person to losing her completely in your life. When I pondered over this emotion I would like to tell you that I do not fear. Where there is pure love how can fear survive. Love is a task of giving and reflecting and the emotion of fear just passes away as we grow more towards pure Love. I do not seems to think that I would lose the contact or your presence in any manner in my life since the memories, thoughts, and the face of yours reside in my heart and unless my heart stops beating I shall have no fear of losing them. Fear comes from desire and I would like to remove the root of desire from my mind so that I could be more pure in my attempt to love you.
Sometime in my daily activities I see the picture of yours around me. It is like a thousand petals flowered all around me shining like a star and twinkling at me. I wonder as to why I see them all. The only answer I have is that you reside in my heart and that is the reason why I see them all around you. It is not the eyes that see the objects but the heart which seems them and makes us understand as to what they are.
Self-Awareness and Ego: When you love someone you are more aware of the self than any time before. When I started the process of Love there were so many emotions inside me which I was not aware of. When I start looking at you and in the reflection of eyes I see those emotions and things in me which I would have never discovered otherwise. In this aspect I am grateful to you in giving me the opportunity to become aware of so many things. I would like to come down to the next point of Ego. All of my friends and mentors advised me against proceeding in the path of love. For them it seems like I am going to get lost and will have to suffer the mental agonies of not attaining you. Let me tell you very strongly that I do not fear anymore and if there is an iota of fear in me I would have never been able to Love. To Love is to express yourself in the most profound and splendid manner. It is the most beautiful expressions of self which culminates and frees the individual from fear. You might want to think as to how many great souls have sacrificed everything for the things that they loved about. How it would have been possible for them to do such sacrifices? The courage and willpower to sacrifice comes from the pursuit of love and happiness. Only when a human being starts loving a thing he will be able to sacrifice and begin the pursuit of love and happiness. In the process of love I am losing my ego and verily my own self. I find it amazing and brings be back to the childlike innocence. Since a child does not have any ego and all it does is observe and express the self. If I would not have been in love I would not have written this writing and not even able to think of the ideas to be written. To those who would like to deter me from my path of Love I would like to pronounce to them that I do not fear and I am in the right path of finding the purest of my own self and expression.
Differences: I am very well aware that there are a thousand differences between us. How it could not have been otherwise? Two individuals are always different. They are different about tastes, likes, dislikes, interests, etc. However, those differences that you think prevent you from loving a person are the same ones to be cherished about. Imagine a life where two individuals with the same personality are there! Is there such a life? There is no place on earth you can find two people with the same personality that is how nature has created humans. Let me tell you that differences and thoughts about it should never come to your mind as deterrence in love. Not just with me but with anyone for that matter. Love is what joins those differences and if there were no differences it just would not have been possible for love to exist. Think about it, “A man and A Woman” are so different from each other, ranging from their emotions and intellectual abilities to that of their physique. But isn't it amazing that you find pure love to be residing between the same two different individuals? Differences exist because of Ego and when you truly love someone your entire ego goes and you become like a child and there is no difference between 2 newly born children, they all look the same! Love is the surrender of ego.
Beauty & Perfection: All my years I have never found the need of beauty and perfection until I started Loving. Now, I find the need of beauty and perfection in everything, ranging from trying to perfect and beautify this writing to things in my everyday life and in my humble attempts to connect with you. When I try to think of a gift for you I start to think of the most beautiful and the perfect that my mind could ever think off. I was wondering how this change in me had come? The only answer is that the mind finds beauty and aesthetics only in the course of Love. This is the reason why Love is the most beautiful and perfect thing in life and nature. Everywhere you look at nature with love you shall find beauty and perfection in its creation. I would like to tell you that when I started writing this article I was wondering as to what fonts I would use to make it more beautiful. Such a thought has never come across my life however, now I would like to make everything perfect, aesthetic, and beautiful. I find this need in me all the things ranging from the choice of words to the size and look of the writing. It just has been amazing to find these new things in my life. You cannot be a lover of beauty and aesthetics unless you are in love and that is the reason why the greatest poets, philosophers, artists, painters and countless many more were great lovers. They always had something in their hearts, minds, and souls which helped them to gain the perfect expression and clarity. This comes from a pure heart which is in the pursuit of love.
To write this article has not been easy. I had to go into the depths of my mind to find the range of emotions and self that I am having. It is from the depth of the ocean in my mind that I was able to find them and bring them into the surface through this writing. I do know for a fact that many of my attempts to contact you and converse with you might have been irritating and disturbing. I would like to offer my apologies in that matter. However, let me also tell you that I am doing such crazy things which are far from the modesty of decency and social conditioning only to be more passionate in the pursuit of my love. Some of the things in this article may not be that perfect however I would try to make them as perfect as I can and let me tell you Love is a journey and with lot of challenges and asks. However, it is the passion and pursuit of this journey which culminates into the bliss of Love.
Thanks for spending your great and valuable time in reading this. If you have anything to ask to me I shall be grateful to answer them in my best abilities.
