March 15 ~  Whenever Two People Meet Five Love Languages

"Unconditional love not only means I am with you, but also I am for you, all the way, right or wrong... Love is indescribable and unconditional. I could tell you a thousand things that it is not, but not one that it is. Either you have it or you haven't, there's no proof of it." ~ Duke Ellington

Martin Guitar

You got that right, Sir Duke-- love is indescribable. Throughout time, artists, philosophers, and scientists have tried to explain how love can make you feel great and still make you hurt. How love is complex and magical. Illusive, overpowering, and so much more...

"I will show you a love potion without drug or any witch’s spell: If you wish to be loved, love." said ancient Roman teacher Hecato.

Others say love is a miracle..."Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle," explained Helen Schucman in the Course In Miracles.

It's a hunger... "There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread," reflected Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

And it is so sweet... "You cannot teach love, but you can feel the sweetness that it pours into everything," said Helen Keller's beloved teacher Anne Sullivan.

It's "a glimpse of heaven" (Karen Sunde) and "spiritual fire" (Emanuel Swedenborg). No two loves are the same. How could they be?

To quote Igor Stravinsky, "what force is more potent than love?"
