Default Re: NOW is LOVE

These are truisms that only kids can express. A group of
professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8
year-olds "What does love mean?"

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could
have imagined.

"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over
and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for
her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too.
That's love."- Rebecca - age 8

"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is
different. You know that your name is safe in their
mouth."- Billy - age 4

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving
cologne and they go out and smell each other." - Karl - age 5

"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your
French fries without making them give you any of theirs."
-Chrissy - age 6

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired." Terri - age 4

"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes
a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."
- Danny - age 7

"Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of
kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My
mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss."
-Emily - age 8

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop
opening presents and listen."- Bobby - age 5

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a
friend who you hate."- Nikka - age 6

"There are two kinds of love. Our love. God's love. But God
makes both kinds of them."- Jenny - age 4

"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears
it everyday." -Noelle - age 7

"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are
still friends even after they know each other so well."
-Tommy - age 6

"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and scared. I
looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving
and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared
anymore."- Cindy - age 8

"My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone
else kissing me to sleep at night."- Clare - Age 5

"Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken."
-Elaine - age 5

"Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says
he is handsomer than Robert Redford."- Chris - age 8

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left
him alone all day."- Mary Ann - age 4

"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her
old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones."- Lauren - age 4

"I let my big sister pick on me because my Mom says she only
picks on me because she loves me. So I pick on my baby sister
because I love her." - Bethany - age 4

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and
little stars come out of you."- Karen - age 7

"Love is when mommy sees daddy on the toilet and she doesn't
think it's gross."- Mark - age 6

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But
if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget."
-Jessica - age 8

I've come to love you all this night.
Again.
For I've loved you before, I know.
When we were all tiny specs in the vast dark space.

And here we are again, together.

Conjured up

Love is like entering a shoe that fits you perfectly.
No feelings of tightness, nor pain , just ease and comfort.
With these shoes on you can fly and travel miles that have no end

"It takes deep soul clarity to love without fear. Our unconscious is spotted with childhood and past life sadness. However, when we allow ourselves to FEEL, our hearts open and know the truth. Feeling is the key. The truth is that humanity has the power to change the entire universe - a universe ACHING to free itself from fear. Each one of us has the power to heal the entire universe. Not alone - using our love, as one. The beings who architected this universe know us, feel us and wait for us to choose. They have known for millennia that this time is coming - the choosing to love. Let's be ready!"

The Magic Of Love

Love is like magic
And it always will be.
For love still remains
Life's sweet mystery!!
Love works in ways
That are wondrous and strange
And there's nothing in life
That love cannot change!!
Love can transform
The most commonplace
Into beauty and splendor
And sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish,
Understanding and kind,
For it sees with its heart
And not with its mind!!
Love is the answer
That everyone seeks...
Love is the language,
That every heart speaks.
Love can't be bought,
It is priceless and free,
Love, like pure magic,
Is life's sweet mystery!!

In discussing love, it would be well to consider the following premises;

One cannot give what he does not possess. To give love you must possess love.

One cannot teach what he does not understand. To teach love, you must comprehend love.

One cannot know what he does not study. To study love, you must live in love.

One cannot appreciate what he does not recognize. To recognize love you must be receptive to love.

One cannot have doubt about that which he wishes to trust. To trust love you must be convinced of love.

One cannot admit what he does not yield to. To yield to love you must be vulnerable to love.

One cannot live what he does not dedicate himself to. To dedicate yourself to love you must be forever growing in love.


~ Leo F. Buscaglia

Love is not written on paper, for paper can be erased. Nor is it etched on stone, for stone can be broken. But it is inscribed on a heart and there it shall remain forever.

What is a voice,but a song not yet sung .

what is a thought , but an act not yet done

what is an acorn, but an oak in waiting,

what is a worm ,but a buterfly in the making

what are you, but God awaking .....

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Albert Einstein
