Words from another on love…

“Love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire….The salvation of man is through love and in love. I understood how a man who has nothing left in this world still may know bliss, be it only for a brief moment, in the contemplation of his beloved.” – Dr Victor Frankl, wrote in Man’s Search for Meaning, first published in 1946.
So, as he also writes “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves”.
“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
Chose to live with love, live lovingly. After-all, “The more one forgets himself — by giving himself to a cause to serve or another person to love — the more human he is and the more he actualizes himself. What is called self-actualization is not an attainable aim at all, for the simple reason that the more one would strive for it, the more he would miss it. In other words, self-actualization is possible only as a side-effect of self-transcendence.
“Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he loves him,” said Frankl. Wise words indeed!
