Love for a lifetime is indeed a gift from divinity. Until death do us apart and even afterwards in the other world is a soul mate thing. Human beings survive on food, clothing and shelter and more on love. The realization that someone cares for you and someone values you more than you can imagine is a feeling to die for. Hardest moments in life can be met with easily when you have someone who truly loves you, ready to offer shoulders to cry upon. In the absence of the person you love, the best colours of the world will seem dull.
While love and lust can be exciting, if you are able to find someone who will live through your old age nursing you through your old age, being in love with you despite all the disasters and mess ups you show up with, then you are really lucky. Luck and accumulated Karma manifests itself as experiences you derive through your soul mate.
Childhood sweet hearts, found again love, love that blossomed at your workplace or whatever form it can take, if the kind of love you have bumped upon is about loyalty you are the richest man or woman in the world. True love can give you a cherished feeling that all the treasures of the world cannot give without love.
It makes complete sense to live a decade of love filled live with the person who admires and loves you deep within, than to live for 100 years with someone who is still not sure about the relationship. True love is not perfect. It is a life that two people who are imperfect trying to make things near perfect for each other despite small and big hurdles in life. It is about forgiving. It is a deep feeling that has a hard time letting go of each other through events of life and death.
Tearing the roof apart in a full blown fight, trying to sustain the battle for long hours just to bear hug each other over and over again with multiple repetitions of the same fights is what a lifetime with the person you love feels like. Enough is never enough in terms of affection when you live with the person you love. You will not be able to call it over for each other no matter what.
If you believe death kills love, the reality is that your love will find you in the after world to live in eternal happiness. Love is an energy that can never be destroyed. Let time pass, you will see your love again. If you have not found your love yet, the stars have just crossed and your love is approaching you. Happy Love. Happy Light.
