The Defining Framework of Love (Give) and Lust (Take)

14 Dec

How do you define love and what do you deem to be its opposite? Many of us define love as the opposite of hate but rather than define it this way, I chose to see it as the opposite of LUST. What do you do when you love someone/something? You tend to give your all right to them/it? That is to say that when you LUST, you tend to take from it/them.
One thing that is worth noting is that, “for you to be happy as an individual you need to LOVE and you need LOVE”. Hence, the relationship between Love and Lust is actually a decision between giving and taking. Do you know that in loving (giving) you receive? This is also to say that when you allocate, you accumulate but the reverse is not the case.
Therefore, the overarching value that drives decision making should actually be whether it’s an act of giving (love) or taking (lust). In order words, if we as a people can keep the give vs. take framework in our minds as we go through our routine tasks, we will develop a value-based compass for taking the right actions and making the best decisions for our lives.

Let us also note that what you appreciate, appreciates but what you rebuff, depreciates. Look through your life and identify where you have been missing it and find a way to rectify those. This is a period of sharing, find one needy and give something that will ignite his/her face with happiness.
Season’s Greetings
