It is a mystery why we fall in love. It is a mystery how it happens. It is a mystery when it comes. It is a mystery why some love grows and it is a mystery why some love fails. You can analyze this mystery and look for reasons and causes, but you will never do anymore that take the life out of the experience. Just as life itself is more than the sum of the bones and muscles and electrical impulses in the body, love is more than the sum of the interests and attractions and commonalities that two people share. And just as life itself is a gift that comes and goes in its own time, so too, the coming of love must be taken as an unfathomable gift that cannot be questioned in its ways.~*~*♥*~*~
Sometimes, hopefully at least once in your life - the gift of love will come to you in full flower. Take hold of it and celebrate it in all inexpressible beauty. This is the dream we all share. More often, it will come and take hold of you, celebrate you for a brief moment, then move on.
You need to know this about love, and accept it. You need to treat what it brings you with kindness. If you find yourself in love with someone who does not love you, be gentle with yourself. There is nothing wrong with you. Love just didn't choose to rest in the other person's heart.
If you find yourself someone in love with you but you don't love him back, feel honored that love came and called at your door, but gently refuse the gift you cannot return. Do not take advantage; do not cause pain. How you deal with love is how you deal with yourself. All our hearts feel the same pains and joys, even if our lives and ways are different. If you fall in love with another, and he falls in love with you, and then love chooses to leave, do not try to reclaim it nor to assess blame. Let it go. There is a reason and there is a meaning. You will know in time. Remember that you don't choose love. Love chooses you. All you can really do is accept it for all its mystery when it comes into your life. Feel the way it fills you to overflowing, then reach out and give it away. Give it back to the person who brought it alive in you. Give it to others who deem it poor in spirit. Give it to the world around you in any way you can. There is where many lovers go wrong. Having been so long without love, they understand love only as a need. They see their hearts as empty places that will be filled by love, and they begin to look at love as something that flows to them rather than from them.
The first blush of new love is filled to overflowing, but as their love cools, they revert to seeing their love as a need. They cease to be someone who generates love and instead become someone who seeks love. They forget that the secret of love is that it is a gift, and that it can be made to grow only by giving it away. Remember this and keep it to your heart. Love has its time, its own season, its own reason for coming and going. You cannot bribe it or coerce it, or reason it into staying. You can only embrace it when it arrives and give it away when it comes to you. But if it chooses to leave from your heart or from the heart of your lover, there is nothing you can do and there is nothing you should do. Love always has been and always will be a mystery. BE GLAD THAT IT CAME TO LIVE FOR A MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE. If you keep you heart open, it will come again...

belita747 saidLove is a gift, well wrapped in a nice paper, and beautifully knotted, however, how rarely the contents exceeds or equals the outside in beauty! Anyway, always handle it with care and respect..

'Love'ly post, Viera. Well, so much has been written and said about Love ... even though, Love remains a mystery that makes us sometimes laugh, others smile and the worst of all... crying for disappointment? misunderstanding? unlucky fate?.... I fully agree with Frankiex comment... Love is a gift and most of the times we only realize the treasure we have had when we lose it for this or that reason.... Love is a gift, well wrapped in a nice paper, and beautifully knotted, however, how rarely the contents exceeds or equals the outside in beauty! Anyway, always handle it with care and respect... each time, it knocks, each time it shows up in a different way, though always lovely! That's LOVE.... Belita

Love is a gift ..A surprise gift..A gift I treated with care, kindness, consideration. I did not expect or realise the beauty of Love...Until one day it was taken from me. So cruel and without care, kindness and consideration. Now I know what Love is. I need to share it once more...But will that Love be the same...?? Thank you Viera
I'm very glad that you are happy and very lucky man indeed... That is very infrequentlyand not the same for everybody...as you know, I have not a talent for to play a violon...definitely...

jashheifetz saidI dont think I can agree with you
You have to read the whole sentence...
If you find yourself someone in love with you but you don't love him back, feel honored that love came and called at your door, but gently refuse the gift you cannot return.
