“It is easy to love in perfect conditions, but if all is perfect how we can express our love truly? It remains unseen among the perfection. It cannot prove its value. That’s why life challenges us to express our love in imperfect environment so we can learn how to transform all that is into perfection.”
Today I want to share a story of a 16-year-old boy and my insights about love of our times. Here is a story.
Boy is introducing himself by telling the others that he is 16 years old and since one year he was drinking beers and also other hard liquors. He admits that he knows that he might have a drinking problem and he is on his way to get addicted and become an alcoholic. Then he says:
I don’t care anymore. I don’t care what is going to happen with me. My mom left one year ago to work in Germany and since then I have no news about her. I don’t know where she lives and what she does for living. I guess she doesn’t love me. My dad is an alcoholic, so he is not able to love me. He doesn’t love himself so how he could possibly know how to love me? I also don’t love myself. That is why I don’t care what is going to happen with me.
There are people who, like this boy, were growing up in very difficult conditions. They may not believe in love. They may think that world doesn’t care about their existence. Someone who was not loved, don’t know how to give love to others or think that he/she needs to deserve it to be loved. It may also happen that someone is loved by others and doesn’t feel it, doesn’t know how to respond to love given by others. Just like a thief may have difficulties to believe that most of the people are being honest.
To change the world we have to give a good example and believe that love conquers all. To give hope and reasons for the others to see that there is a different way of behaving and convince others to join us in living in a better world where love is present we got to carry this world within us. If everyone is habitually behaving in certain way and we are doing it also but convincing others that it is wrong, no one will follow or believe us. We have to start doing something different in order to move the crowds.
If we want to live in the world of harmony and peace, we got to build it within us and discover how to be in harmony with all that is around us. Even if circumstances will place us in the middle of the quarrel when we keep on holding the picture of harmony within us, we may become a source of it for the others and help them solve their problem. If we want to be loved, we got to love first and believe that love opens every door. We got to treat ourselves with love and respect, to let the others respond to us in a loving way. Sometimes it means telling the ones that we love – hey your behavior is hurting me. I love you and that’s why I won’t allow you to treat me like this.
If we keep pure intentions of giving our understanding, showing compassion and acceptance, we will be able to transform the world around us in a magical way. Gandhi did a revolution by starting out from himself. He became a change that he wanted to see in the world.
And you, do you believe that there is a world of abundance and joy, unconditional love available to you right now? To let it exists and operates, all you have to do is to believe in it and start discovering it step by step in your experience. Be in peace and harmony with yourself. Don’t do anything that is against your feelings or intuition. Love yourself without any limits even if you had made some mistakes. You are here to learn. Be abundant with your ideas, enjoy simple things that are available to you, love your life no matter what happens with you and despite of everything. Be grateful for all, as you have only one chance to live. And give a hug to the boy from this story if you meet him on your way. Tell him that he doesn’t have to hurt himself to prove that love doesn’t exist, cause world needs him to prove that it not only exist but it is real.
