What is Love?

Ever since the commencement of time the beautiful word   Love appeared a challenging and perplexed to the thinkers and lovers.  Though the dictionary defines love as “strong affection felt by people who have a romantic relationship“ different people of the world have offered  more insightful ways to look at it. 

 Some of these Great Minds defined this splendid word Love as...

"One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love."—Sophocles

"Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing."—Goethe

"Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness"—Oliver Wendell Holmes

Well, then what is actually a Love?

According to me love is a profound feeling of tender affection for or profound attraction to another. It is said to be an ineffable feeling shared in passionate or intimated interpersonal relationships.

Love has different meaning to every individual. But one thing is for sure which not many would argue is that Love is the most remarkable thing ever. It is the most uplifting feeling. It is powerful and strong. 

No wonder why it makes you goofy and no question how you can’t be mad!

But still we often ask “what is Love?”

Why do we quite often ask this question?

We usually ask this question because we are not sure whether a special person loves us, or the special person accuses us of not really loving them

In reality understand that when we are truly engaged in giving and receiving love, we never ponder  on such philosophical questions . Only when things go wrong that we start analyzing and contemplating as to what went wrong!  

When we are truly love someone there is tangible proof. It is certainly not an abstract thought or feeling. It is concrete and evidenced. Reminding you what King Solomon wrote in his book “As water reflects a man’s face back to him, so is the heart of one man to another.”  It can be explained as when you are treated with love; your heart reflects that love.

Understand that Love is an action. Real love need to be expressed in action. The Hebrew word for love – “ahavah“ – reveals this true definition of love. The word “ahavah” is built upon the root consonants h-v, meaning “to give”. Real love need to be shown in action. That is if you love your beloved, you need to show it. Similarly, if you love, that will reveal it on you. You will feel it by the way you are treated.

 The true test of love is action, deeds and performance.

Sometimes feelings might be deceptive. What we consider as love may in reality be another emotion. But actions cannot be falsified. Thus, instead of asking “What is Love?” we need to ask “Do I perform acts of love for my beloved?” and “Does my beloved perform acts of love for me?”
