“The most beautiful things
in the world cannot be
seen or touched,
they are felt with the heart.”
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
You may have heard this quote before and not known that it was part of The Little Prince. It has become one of those inspirational messages that we use when we speak of love.
For what is love?
Is it the entwining of souls through respect, admiration, taming and fidelity? Or is it the soul to soul connection we receive when we love with our whole hearts? Is it the bond of family that just is because we are family? Is it a mother’s innate bonding with her child that is born from her body or for the child who is chosen through her heart? Or is it the friendships that we forge throughout our lifetimes through similar experiences? Is it the caring for or from a stranger in crisis? Or is it God’s love for all of his children who are perfect, whole and complete just as they are? Is it the heart’s understanding of the preciousness of this moment in time with another person or animal or nature? Or is it just the complete feeling of bliss when we are grateful for the presents of presence?
What is love to you? Please share!
