For me to find love, I have gone through many trials in my life, finding out what love is NOT:
Love is not a new toy or something to play with,
It’s not candy either.
Love is not chocolate or ice cream,
Love is not a party.
Love is not a computer.
Love is not a cat or a dog or a hamster or a bird,
Love is not a TV or a show on TV.
Love is not a one night stand, or two or three.
Love is not a family,
Love is not a child or a parent.
Love is not in a book,
Love is not a hobby.
Love is not material possessions.
Love is not going to be found if you move states or countries,
Love is not drugs or alcohol,
Love is not work.
Love is not pain or agony or depression.
Love is not a big, shiny new car.
Love is not a house.
Love is not a diamond or precious stone,
Love is not a ring on a finger.
Love is not gambling,
Love is not money.
Love is not a new diet,
Love is not exercise,
Love is not a lean body.
Love is not a love letter,
Love is not flowers.
Love is not in another person.
I have been searching for love all my life, and in all my searching, I have not found it… until now.
Love will never be found outside of me. It only comes from within. It is in all of us, but has been buried in a mountain of crap, called life. It has been pasted over by ex-lovers, material possessions, and emotions of past experiences. It has been sealed shut with lots of delicious food and good times.
But if you are so lucky to begin to uncover love from the depths below, you will see that it shines. You will see how it radiates forward in all you do. You will see how it’s all-encompassing. You will see how it fills every crevasse of your body, your life and your soul. You will not be able to contain it. The love is so strong, it has the capability of moving you and all of those around you. It will show in your kindness, your generosity and your gratitude. It will be revealed in everything you do.
Does your love shine? How have you worked to find love?
