'Whenever you sleep under starry skies, you can't stop wondering whether each of us have a star somewhere, in the deep deep dark of nocturnal skies. The sky literally seems to be filled with stories, the moon sings songs and the wind whispers secrets never told.
Some say that love never truly dies, but keeps on echoing through the universe till infinity. We never choose whom to love and love never arrives when expected.
Others say that love is an entity. A gift from the gods to the humans. Just like a flower it needs to be watered, fed and given space. Otherwise it simply leaves.
Love can not sustain itself in cities, it needs land, forests, lakes, mountains, oceans. You can invite it to your own piece of land and it will stay... But invite her to your city apartment, and it won't.
Some say that love is insanity. Whenever someone does I wonder whether they are afraid of surrender, for surrender is madness. Surrender is devotion. It is letting go of ego and trusting that the current will take your soul where it needs to go.
All religions of the world agree that Love is the Greatest of All, perhaps even greater than God itself. All governments bow before it. All beauty holds its breath when it appears. All artists breathe its inspiration when it visits. Love is known to incite wars and revolutions... and to make them cease. Love can heal... and there are some who kill in its name. Some give love a bad name... while few turn it into legend.
Throughout history love has never been able to get imprisoned in the realm of reason. It simply is... There's no need to believe in it. Love is a fact, without any tangible proof present. Perhaps love is the greatest mystery of all and as Plato remarked 'The madness of love is the greatest of heaven's blessings.'
