One Life...One Love

Is love received richer then that of love
given? Can love be given without being
received? Is it the giver or the taker who
benefits more?

So then, let us speak of love.

If the steam does finally find it's way
through the mountains and valleys
before becoming part of an ocean's
roar, it must continue to flow, least
it dry up, leaving it's brittle and fragile
remains, in an empty gully. So it is with
love that is given and not returned.

Then who is the taker or the giver? The
stream or the ocean? Neither, for without
the one, there is no other, for they are
one to each other.

Love can not be given with the
expectation of love in return. For, 'pure love'
must mutually be given. There is no 'taker'
only those who 'give' can receive the
gift of love.

There are those that would say, 'I have
given, but not received the love of which
you speak.' I say to you, the love you have
given to those that are unworthy, will like a
leaf in a winter's day, die. Do not despair,
for in the springtime of your life, love will
yet again be born unto you and you may
offer it in all it's glory, anew.
