It’s a profound mystery
It was a beautiful warm Saturday morning and I was so engrossed in the general cleaning of the house. Great music was playing in the background that made me enjoy the duty.Then this particular song plays and stops me on my tracks.“Love like there is no such thing as a broken heart”by Old Dominion.
Here is a pull out..
“….How did my mom and my dad ever do it?
If there was struggles then we never knew it
I guess they had each other, that was enough….You know you can’t keep the ground from shaking, no matter how hard you try
You can’t keep the sunsets from fading, you gotta treat your life like
You’re jumping off a rope swing maybe’cause the whole thing’s really just a shot in the dark
You gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart
You gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart…”
You bet that got me thinking,I had to listen to it again and again. The beats were captivating and so were the voices.My mind went on high drive,mmmmhhh..You gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart.Seriously,what’s the alternative?
This life is so short to spend it wallowing in self pity and hate. I agree,we all have gone through pretty messed up breakups but that does not negate the fact that love is stronger than any other force in the world.I mean,how do you explain how two strangers meet and they turn each other’s world “upside down?” like the words of MichaeI Bolton :
“…When a man loves a woman
Can’t keep his mind on nothin’ else
He’d trade the world
For a good thing he’s found
If she is bad, he can’t see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he puts her down…When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He’d give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that’s the way
It ought to be…”
I chuckle when I listen to some lines above..I like listening to love songs just to understand love better..There are millions of love songs that have been sang by great legends to explain it,many poems have also been written to unearth the deep meaning of love.It’s really a twisted thing…(I don’t have a better term) but Wikipedia description has it as:
“Love encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states, from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection and to the simplest pleasure.”
Urban dictionary describes it as “A feeling that goes beyond almost all sense of physicality. To love is to feel such a strong feeling for another that you can understand them in a way few can. Their very existence is a gift and treasurerather they are with you or not. The merethought of them fills you with a deep hope for both the world and yourself.” …Now that is tough and tender at the same time.
I am enjoying this journey called life.Its one enjoyable ride when there is the mystery of love to demystify. Join in the ride and let us live and fill this life with love and laughter..the world needs that and we owe it to ourselves.
And to crown it all,God created us out of His deep love for us.His love super-cedes every other kind of love.
