The Love Challenge - romantic love

The Love Challenge - romantic love "My beloved said to me 'Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers are springing up and the time of the singing of the birds has come. Yes, spring is here, the leaves are coming out and the grape vines are in blossom. How delicious they smell! Arise, my love, my fair one and come away! '" Song of Solomon 2, 10-13 How beautiful the gift of a lover who awakes us to life, who calls us to be more and share our gifts and enables us to be more than we could ever be by ourselves! It is the mark of a true loving relationship, that we are better, more with the person than without him or her, be it in a traditional or an alternative relationship, no matter the sexual orientation, culture, religion, or creed, if there is more good, more creation, more love, more joy for those in the relationship with it than without it, then it is worth the price to be paid, or the risk to be taken, but true love does not count the cost - it gives all, it suffers all, and it concentrates on finding ways of making the other happy, filling him or her up, letting them know how much of a miracle life is because they are in it. Relationship seldom comes without pain, there are challenges in all relationships, it is what makes us grow. But true unconditional love does conquer all, and it never creates less. It is joyous, and patient, it is not jealous, but gives and includes, it does not stick to forms and rules, religions, cultures, or creeds but makes its own way - and if we keep giving it, instead of expecting, or worse demanding reciprocation in a certain form we want to control, it is the entry to paradise. Love elevates us, where 1+1 is not 2, but 3, 5, or 10, and it is the blueprint and guide to creation.
