First Perspective: The Power of Love

[Written Just Before Falling in Love with My Wife-to-be – in Anticipation]

  1        One must be strong to love.

  2        Love has to be reserved, not given too effusively; otherwise it will be misunderstood, mistaken, even resented, if the other is not able to reciprocate.

  3        In the beginning stages of love, one must be assured that he is not so all loving, that he is incapable of hate or lust or resentment, and all other familiar self-needs and expressions.

  4        It is hard to love without feeling, because much is required — too much for many.

  5        To love fully is to be aware of loving.
