Why Do We Love?

(DL) – It's been said that love is patient, kind... blah blah blah. Love is many things, ultimately love is a hard word. It's hard to come by, hard to find, hard to accept, hard to follow  ...it's hard! A hard word is hard to define. A word such as love begs the great question of why do we love?

It's important as we begin this excercise you accept that love is love, it's not desire. It's not something that makes you feel close to one person emotionally and desire another sexually. The love here is true love. The love that if you get it right – you will never leave that person. What inside of us makes us want a love like that?

The shortest answer is we love that we may be loved. Seems like a cruel answer. It reads like some smart ass didn't want to give a better explaination, all you need is clarity to the statement. There are reasons. Before they are given let's identify the common thread through them all. After all, anthropologist Hellen Fisher, author of Why We Love answers this question based on instinctive brain systems. She breaks down the anatomy. For Hellen the answer to why we love is stated as the presence of motivation, there is a craving, there is obsession. But let's not call love something we are motivated to do, or crave or obsess over. The real question is why do we crave, why do we obsess? What is it that love makes us so motivated. Here are the answers to why we love from an entirely different point-of-view. Why do we love?

(DL) – Life is amazing thing.  It doesn't matter who you are, we all want that one friend that will make you feel like you can take on the world and win.  We desire that one person when you come home at the end of the day will make you feel not just "alive" but ALIVE! 

To posses that person who makes you feel dynamite – you in return must...Read more...

Perception is everything, reality is nothing

(DL) – Today I want to challenge you. Does it matter to you how you are perceived? I have an axiom that has become a precept in my life. 

Perception is everything, reality is nothing.

The adage above means it doesn't matter what is. It is telling you that perception is reality. Perception is truth. In this case of the question I've raised to you, I'm saying that what you really are inside does not matter. What matters is what people think you are. Of course this is something you can apply in other areas such as it doesn't matter what people see, it matters what they think.

Does it matter to you what people think of you? Let's be clear. The question is do you care how people perceive you? Because who you are and the perception of who you are by others are two entirely separate entities. 

Imagine that. You – are you. Despite there being only one you, the you that you know yourself to be and the you that others see you as may not be the same. For instance you may in fact be happy-go-lucky. You know that is your nature. Yet others could indeed decide you are someone that has pent up anger. Do you want that label if you know yourself not be angry?  Perhaps these poetic words will help:

   You might be the sweetest little girl in your heart
   But still the world ignores that and tears you apart

It does not matter what you know to be true in this world. It only matters what...Read more...





The debt of true friendship

In my short life which I've learned is oh so fleeting, there is a short list of lessons with profound importance. One of those life lessons is the importance of friendship. Friendship is far more than a state of mind.  Actions are what make a friend. While there are many virtues in friendship, friendship itself is the greatest virtue that comes with a great debt which can turn a life around. A genuine friendship paves the path to destiny.

The debt of friendship is as complex as it is intangible. A friendship gone wrong can cost...Read more...

Every hero becomes a bore at last

(DL) – I'd like to share something personal today. "Every hero becomes a bore at last."  Do you know who's quote this is?  Emerson, Sachin, Saurav?  Let's say for now the source doesn't matter; what does matter? It is true.

Upon hearing this quote for the first time years ago, it stimulated me to think a great deal.  The instant I came across it this quote made me think back to my youth. In my younger days I had an unquenchable desire. Yes I wanted to pursue my dreams of being an athlete and musician. But beyond all things... I wanted to be loved by the best woman in the world. To be in the company of such a woman, I needed to be worthy. I'd need to be her hero.

It was such a silly notion, so romantic and needlessly wanted. Because in time, somewhere between...Read more...
