Do You See Love?

Have you ever looked at the stillness of beauty, it is timeless, and without change. If you pause to look at the painted picture of roses you see an elegance and beauty. The rose is the flower of love and from the poet Robert Burns; "my love is like a red, red rose," tells the story of love through the rose.

Such simple words symbolize love. The romance of the rose, the flower captivates the circular movement of love itself contained with its perfected form.

Ancient Greeks and Romans associated the rose with Aphrodite the Greek goddess of love. Venus is the goddess of love and turns the hearts from sexual vice to virtue. The rose conveys the message of love in the beauty of its bloom.

On the opposite side of the spectrum of love the rose came to be associated with the blood of Christian martyrs. How sad that anyone should have to spill their blood for a belief system. Love should promote the bond and the friendship but it should not inspire hatred.

Valentine's Day has come to have a special meaning in the love relationship and doing something on Valentine's Day can implement the revival of many things. Love is an eternal energy and it is not just launched into by buying a bouquet of roses to express that love. Love will always be, but it has to be nurtured and cared for throughout the days.

So we talk about love on one particular day of the year, Valentines Day. This is the day you declare your undying love for another person, but only on this day, but what about love on the rest of the other three-hundred and sixty-four days.

Love is the most important element in life and some may find it hard to think of valentine things to do to make it right for someone else when they only know the loneliness and harsh reality of living alone, or having no one to love them.

To the one who finds it hard to think of love

Sometimes the world is dark for others. As you listen to them speak you know their mind is filled with the downward spiral of nothing to live for. How sad it is to see them move away from all that can help them. I suppose some cannot be healed by the grace of love. I can only stand by and send them love from afar. I pray for them to open their mind to find a thread of something, something that catches their attention and triggers the movement towards the greater.

From the point of light within the mind of God let light stream forth into your mind. Open the grieving heart for no matter what you have done or said in your life you will always be forgiven. Nothing is worse than destroying our own life. How can it be if it was for your grandfather so it is for you? Are we just a carbon copy of what we have seen in others, I think not. There is a better way, seek to find the answers and overcome the obstacles life throws at us. It is only the nature of learning that we are involved in with the timelessness of evolution and growth. Nothing changes until we change from within. The answer is to love yourself as well.

A simple idea love is

The key to love is not Valentine's Day economy, love is actually available twenty-four seven all year and it starts with a simple idea. The idea is so simple that people laugh at it; love comes from within you first. If you are able to love yourself then you can love another person whether that person be your mother, father, family member or friend. Love is an energy and you can either give it or withhold it.

When love is withheld it backfires into hate, anger, frustration, depression, misery and this is the downward spiral that negates you. This is seeing the ugliness and not the beauty. If we can only think momentarily of one day that will validate our love for another then we are indeed in bad shape within and need to bring something else to the table of life we sit at.

The Truth About Socializing on Social Media

Social Media is a black hole of experience and has changed from what it was. When social interaction online first began it was incredible. I remember how excited I was to be a beta user for the AOL chat room. The conversations we had online were thrilling. We exchanged views and talked about life because we could. Technology introduced us to a method of communication and connection we had not experienced before. I well remember the conversations and still smile to myself at how we 'hid' behind an identity but not for long. We laughed at how we could 'read between the lines' in our comments and could pick out the unpleasant people whom we banned from the chat room. We lived in a cyber world and some of us made long lasting friends and still communicate with those people whom we met years ago. Life was busy but no one allowed the chat room to interfere with life. The ability to chat online had its time but there were no advertising interruptions or selling t

The Zen of the Internet

The Zen is the contemplation and meditation of something. It is a word known to the Buddhist tradition but is trending in Western tradition. Nobody denies the leap in technology over the last twenty-six years, we're smitten with it. We cannot get enough of the Internet. It has evolved from the simple system of links to a complex inter relational database of systems, apps, and websites. Interacting on the Internet has a process. Everyone will have a different process. This article outlines a process based on personal experience. The Internet gained popularity in 1990, when the personal computer came into existence. Browsers, operating systems, and hosting companies sprung to life to offer systems we could use from a personal computer. The resource of information on the Internet, or the World Wide Web as it was called connected people via the network cables and we were "in the cloud" having conversations and sharing information. Weaving the Web The history of th

If One Life is Helped by Knowing

You Can't Go There Before Your Time What brought you here to earth - the stork? All of a sudden we get it. The sort of Eastern philosophy, and if you venture to say it's "new agey." You existed before you were born, and you exist after you die. If the truth of the subject of survival beyond the death experience, and reincarnation, was properly explained, suicide would be something people used to do. My purpose is to start a conversation to get in touch with the real issue - there is no escape from life in the afterlife. Ending a life prematurely before it's time to end does nothing but bring you into closer proximity with your problems. You cannot escape from yourself. Why am I so concerned about this issue? Because even with what I know and have experienced throughout my life, I have wanted to leave this life experience and go back to where I came from. Where did I come from? Simply put, I can remember the 'place of light,' since I w
