Love And Kisses

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself.  To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.  To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.  ~Kahlil Gibran

But where do we find love, the romantic kind? If you are out of school and have entered the work force, finding that special someone can be a daunting task.  Most of us work full days and then run errands before wanting to vege out in front of a TV.  Weekends are often spent with so more catching up.

We tell our friends and family we would like to be in a relationship but don’t seem to meet enough people.  Someone then suggests what about a dating site, or some other speed dating organization.  So we give it a try and then use some of the hours we would spend with our friends or running errands to sit in front of a computer.  Before we know we are exchanging emails, phone calls and sometimes actual meetings.

This seems to be all well and good except that in all this activity we leave out a very important tool in meeting others; living in the moment.  How many people do we actually interact on a daily basis?  Think about it.  Coffee shops, dog parks, dry cleaners, super-markets, wine bars, movie lines etc.  What if we were open and present?  Could we make friends?  Could we meet someone we could become romantically involved with?  Could we meet someone who could introduce us to someone else?  Maybe.  But just as maybe as meeting someone online.  Plus by living in the moment we build a life with less anxiety and more spontaneity.  We live in the world and we build connections.  So don’t spend all your time running around or in front of a computer.  Go out do things and meet people while having a good time.

How did it happen that their lips came together?  How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill?  A kiss, and all was said.  ~Victor Hugo
