Perspectives On Love
Homepage: The Cabin
Love defies generalizations.
Poets, philosophers, theologians, and countless others have ascribed their
own theories and interpretations but often they still fall short of the
goal of capturing the true nature of this unfathomable entity. The strength
of love lies in its diversity. It possesses the unique ability to evolve,
change, and permutate over the course of our lives. Just as we grow outwardly
we must also grow inwardly. Our thoughts, realizations, and perceptions
are given credence by our individual experiences on the separate paths
we follow in our quest for love. And as love is an integral part of our
inner selves, so it must grow and mature as well. It possesses the ability
to adapt to its internal as well as its external environment. It not only
changes as we change but it also ebbs and flows outwardly dependent on
the receptivity of those to whom it is directed.
