Handling Love

How you deal with love is how you deal with you,
and all our hearts feel the same pains and joys,
even if our lives and ways are different.

Remember that you don't choose love. Love chooses you.
All you can really do is accept it for all its mystery when it comes into your life.
Feel the way it fills you to overflowing, then reach out and give it away.

Give it back to the person who brought it alive in you.
Give it to others who deem it poor in spirit.
Give it to world around you in anyway you can.

This is where many Lovers go wrong. Having been so long without love,
they understand love only as a need. They see thier hearts as empty places
that will be filled by love, and they begin to look at love as something that
flows to them rather than from them. They forget that the secret of love
is that it is a gift, and that it can be made to grow only by giving it away.

Remember this, and keep it to your heart. Love has its own time,
its own seasons, and its own reason for coming and going.
You can't bribe it, or reason it into saying. You can only embrace
it when it arrives and give it away when it comes to you.

But if it chooses to leave from your heart, or from the heart of your lover,
there's nothing you can do and there's nothing you should do.
There's a reason and there's a meaning, You will know in time.

Love is a gift, feel honoured that it came and called at your door.
But if you can't return this gift, just gently refuse it. Don't take
advantage, don't cause pain.

Love always has been and always will be a mystery.
