What is love? I believe that it's not the sappy kind of definition that we've all come to believe. In my experience it's simply not a feeling at all. I'm referring to the love that changes people, places, and things. The kind of love Martin Luther King Jr. was referring to when he said "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. " This is the kind of love that I'm referring to. The kind of love that, has something to say about it.
There was a time not all too long ago that I had no idea what love was, although I would have told you that I did. I truly thought that I did, but as it turns out, I didn't. I had no clue what Dr. King was referring to, although I would have thought that I did. I've been on this planet for 34 years, and until 2 years ago, I had no idea what love was. What was it that happened two years ago that enabled me to realize what love was?
My daughter incarnated into this world, and now I know what love is. And it has nothing to do with not only what I thought it was, but as far as I can tell, what most of the world thinks it is either. No, love most certainly came into my life and had something to say about it.
Before my daughter came, I drank, smoked, and concerned myself with ME entirely too much. I thought love was something that you found “out there" somewhere and came to find out is was something that you ARE. My daughter was love. She was love incarnated in a physical body, which was something that I'd never seen before. Soon after her arrival, I stopped drinking and smoking cold. I just walked away from both of them because I felt that I must. Yea, I would most certainly say that love had something to say about it.
Remember what Mother Teresa said, If you judge people, you have no time to love them. " This is what love is. Mother Teresa represented what love is. My daughter and everyone else's children, including ourselves, represent what love is, and at the end of the day, love always has something to say about it, doesn't it?
