Scriptures on love
10 Sep 2016
“THE stage is more beholding to love, than the life of man. For as to the stage, love is ever matter of comedies, and now and then of tragedies; but in life it doth much mischief; sometimes like a siren, sometimes like a fury.
For there was never proud man thought so absurdly well of himself, as the lover doth of the person loved; and therefore it was well said, That it is impossible to love, and to be wise.
Nuptial love maketh mankind; friendly love perfecteth it; but wanton love corrupteth, and embaseth it.”
Francis Bacon (1561-1626)
The above-mentioned philosophic epigrams on love written by Francis Bacon still remain scriptures on love. Love is a matter of comedies and tragedies. It brings mischief to life. It acts as a siren and fury as well. It is impossible to love and to be wise. It is friendly love that makes nuptial love perfect to create a flawless mankind.
Love has to be made stable and lovers are to be stabilized. But generally lovers are not so. Love sometimes ebbs, flows and dries. Sometimes you are loved and some other times you are thrown out. Such love according to me is dangerous.
Love has to be made divine and eternal. Divinity and eternity will come out of mutual respect and appreciation of the lovers. So love has to be unconditional.
“But love me for love’s sake, that evermore /Thou mayst love on, through love’s eternity.” This is the poetic scripture by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, (1806 – 1861). Sometimes lovers are attracted mutually on sympathetic grounds. Such love does not prosper. Because sympathy will vanish gradually and naturally lover will be made captive as and when sympathy vanishes.
Motherhood is honourable. But mothers don’t forget their roles as wife and lover. Majority of mothers adores children and motherhood. The body and soul of such mothers are unattainable to lovers.
It’s an era of internet and social media. Now lovers love through social media. Such love is far away from the real five senses. They download the specific required parameter of love from web space and share. In fact lovers are expected to download true love from their heart.
According to Francis Bacon it is friendly love that makes nuptial love perfect to create a flawless mankind. This is true. Because true love originates from nature, grows physical and blooms spiritual.
I love you is a universal scripture that concretize love everywhere. But nobody know that the scripture is nothing but a promissory note which will be cancelled within a specific period of time. So don’t be mad after the magic scripture; cash it soon.
Some of the lovers treat love as optional or alternative to the existing one. It’s a secretive safe play. True love is no optional or alternative. If you treat love as optional or alternative, you will soon lose love.
Love should not be a monopoly of the lovers. Love has to be universal. Love has to be omnipresent. Otherwise Love becomes a pain for you instead joy. So Love becomes a pain when you think that your Lover is yours only; But Love becomes a Joy when you think that your Lover is yours too.
