Life, Love... Love, Life!

The most powerful force in our lives is our ability to love.

Indeed, it’s the most basic essence of who we are.

The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the other.

The whole purpose of life is to live by love.

-Thomas Merton

Last night my seventeen year old cousin Jason sent me this quote on my mobile. I was shocked and I wanted to weep for a while because I never expected such a young man to send serious stuff on the phone. Most kids his age don't even bother to send messages at all but then maybe I underestimated that age group.

Here I am, a decade older than my cousin yet I still refuse to understand what his message meant. I choose not to understand it. It will only make things more complicated than they already are.

Here I am, twenty-seven years and a day older from the day I was ripped from my mother's womb, and I am still very stubborn.

Running away is not an option.

Repressing emotions is not the solution.

Living life and loving it could be a good start...

The Beatles could be right...

It's EASY.

All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED...
