Why do we always say that “people fall in love?”
What is love? Is it the same as romantic attachment to someone? Mmm…Not exactly… but… Romantic attachment is a part of what we call love.
You can be in love and you can fall in love. So love is like a room you can enter by yourself or by mistake
Although I wouldn’t call it a mistake, if you did fall in love.
True mistake is not falling in love.
The true mistake is thinking…thinking that the reason you have reached this space called love is because of another person.
If you and I meet and we fall in love
I would assume you had love
because I didn’t have it before I met you
but you say you never had it either…
Once we look at it carefully, we see the fallacy
now we know for sure there is something greater
than our individual egos at play.
So there is a space called love
that’s all we know for sure
So you and I try to understand the puzzle of love
The only way to know you say is ask questions
And so I ask, “What else do we know?”
We know that love makes life beautiful
you smile at strangers
you want to dance
you want to jump as high as you can
and when an ant comes crawling up the window
you still look at it and smile
because love makes you feel you want to live forever
and nothing else matter but love.
Imagine everyone around us finding this space called love.
You and I agree that it would be beautiful to live in this space called love.
Then the world would be in love
and everyone would be smiling at strangers
and happy no matter what
Everyone would care
and then what, you might ask?
Maybe, another room might open up
what do we call this new space?
Let’s call it “compassion”.
Let’s all agree on this name
because we are all in love.
Let’s all agree that it doesn’t matter what you understood
because as long as you feel it running inside you
then how beautiful would it be?
It started with you and I
and slowly I would disappear
because there would be no room for ego
and maybe we would leave the ants alone.
