Sometimes heart rules..sometimes the brain..rationale or emotions..a speedy coma or timely full stop.. what if we could have both, a flight in the horizons of freedom and timely direction to those wings..

And I see it this way...
I read somewhere that to love someone.. you need to know him objectively.. !!
Never realised that this small truth can change the way I look at things. There are so many hidden meanings that words can portray. I think nothing on this world has the capacity to turn the whole direction of our thoughts, our being like words have. I am amazed that how these lines n paper can produce meaning which magically transforms lives, gives strengths, comes out as a prayer, softly from frail lips and sometimes as curses that can shake you from the very being, these words have the most versatile, dynamic personality. I sometimes wonder, if they had a life of their own! how would they be like. Would the word 'The' be mighty and arrogant and how different words would change their personality when spoken with different tones..
Well that is a fantasy world. But coming back to what i read.. that to love someone you need to know that person objectively. You need to have knowledge about that person as he is, as he exists not how he functions in your orbit, in your own little universe.
I remember my father telling me while introducing the wonderful world of books to me that Love of Knowledge is the supreme love! Well, that makes more sense now. Its not only the knowledge that is worldly and found in books, its your overall relationship with the word knowledge and how you introduce the word in whatever you do.. Its like introducing that word in all spheres of your life and then deepening your knowledge about it as well..
Loving someone should never be your need or requirement its what nature has conspired you to do, so enter this mysterious arena with your senses that are tuned to know and love, rather than tuning in the way you want to and wanting to see how you wanted to, that would create disturbing expectations. Remove the coloured glass and try to objectively look at the person with eyes that seek to know more, the expectation part will slowly disappear. you see, just like two people who cant stand each other.
