Unspoken love

Why tell someone you love them? It is enough to love them. Love can be felt, can be seen – it is even the hardest thing to hide; it expresses itself through your gaze, your movements, your attitude. You do not have to declare it. Human beings expect too much of the verbal or written expression of their love. Once they have spoken of it, they think the matter is settled. Not at all – they speak, they repeat what they said, but their behaviour increasingly shows their love is fading. Love must be preserved as a very precious thing, the most precious thing, and expressed as little as possible through words. In this way it gradually creates unsurpassable freedom and delight in the soul. If you speak of it, you will soon get reactions from all sides which will create misunderstandings, and this will be a shame. Don’t speak of your love and it will live forever within you.

Keeping love alive

“People usually associate happiness with love. But very many also recognize in the end that their happiness has been only short-lived! Why? Because they did not know how to preserve their love. To find happiness in love, you must understand that it is not dependent on possessing someone physically or even on the emotional link connecting you to one another. You will only experience true love in that subtle something that connects you, through a man or a woman, to the whole universe, to the beauty of the flowers, forests, springs, sun and constellations. Do not rush to remove the physical distance that separates you from the one you love, otherwise you will gradually lose all of that subtle world where you sensed the whole of nature alive and pulsating. All that will remain is the physical, prosaic side, and that is not where you will find happiness.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
