Love Dare or the Dare to Love?

I was recently reading some excerpts from the book “The Love Dare”, beautiful words and advices for married couples in turbulent times. I suddenly stopped my reading when I realized that I am not married so, what does it means? Where the advice is for those who live a life based on unconditional love but for many reasons have not taken the sacred vows of marriage? How many marriages will be able to achieve this perfect state of sacred love? Why a “dare” when love is the very essence of every human being?

Challenge number one is titled: Love is patient. Be patient with your words and actions. Think before you speak; what I know as the law of the crumpled paper. Avoid hurting the feelings of those you love and care for. In my world, love is also patient. It is patient when you love unconditionally; no expectations, no demands, and no desire to change the person you love. It is patient when you sit quietly at night thinking about all the blessings received for the only reason that life has given you the opportunity to love and be loved. It is patient when, knowing that love could be far from you, still you bet on it and decide to love no matter what.

You want a real challenge? Be patient and simply love unconditionally even in times when you think your personal world is falling apart; when you see how the object of your deepest feelings is walking on an opposite direction, when all you have left are brief moments that could always be the last. Love, even if dark thoughts attempt to attack you, when you think you have been used, cheated, and betray. Dare to love the differences, the personal dreams, the flaws, the mistakes, the weaknesses, and the unchangeable. If you could follow this path and married or single, still be happy and loving it, then you would have won not a dare to love but your most valuable treasure as it was written in the beginning:

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” - 1 Corinthians 13

No te merece

No te merece quien sólo te quiere "porque..." sino quien te sigue amando "a pesar de...".
No te merece quien, con su indiferencia, te hace sentir invisible y ausente, sino quien, con su atención, te hace sentir importante y presente.
No te merece quien te ilusiona con lo que dice y luego te desilusiona con lo que hace, sino aquel que "dice" menos y "hace" más.
No te merece quien sólo te busca cuando te necesita, sino quien siempre está a tu lado cuando sabe que lo necesitás.
No te merece quien siempre busca excusas para no verte, sino quien siempre encuentra razones para verte.
No te merece quien te hace llorar, sino aquel que te hace sonreír.
No te merece quien te critica, sino quien se toma el tiempo de corregirte y ayudarte a crecer y mejorar.
No te merece quien intenta cambiar lo que sos, sino quien te acepta así, tal cual sos.
No te merece quien te tiene como opción, sino quien te tiene como prioridad.
No te merece quien sólo te busca para el placer, sino quien te respeta como mujer.
No te merece quien te culpa por tus errores, sino quien te perdona, comprende y ama a pesar de ellos.
No te merece quien te cambia por otra, sino aquel que, al conocerte, supo que no existe otra...
y no te merece quien no hace nada por vos, sino aquel... que no hay nada... que no haría por vos. ♥

Wise and Compassionate Women- A Parable

A wise woman was traveling in the mountains and she found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. The traveler left rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But, a few days later, he came back to return the stone to the wise woman. "I've been thinking," he said. "I know how valuable this stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious." "What is that?" asked the wise woman. "Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me this stone."

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great story by Paulo Coehlo. Real life down to earth characters struggling to find the meaning of life; a mirror of what we all go through day by day. The amazing story of Linda makes us ponder and question. What's life's ultimate purpose? What force moves us? What is it that we should all strive for?
