There are at least 2 types of love. πŸƒ

There will be some people you love because of what you get from them: what they give you, the way they make you feel. πŸƒ

This is perhaps the majority of love, which is also what makes much of love so unstable. πŸƒ

A person’s capacity to give is inconstant and changing. πŸƒ

Your response to what you are given is also inconstant and changing πŸƒ

So if you’re chasing a feeling, you’ll always be chasing. πŸƒ

No feeling is ever constant. πŸƒ

If love is dependent on this, it too becomes inconstant and changing. πŸƒ

And just like everything in this world, the more you chase it, the more it will run away from you. πŸƒ

But, once in a while, people enter your life that you love, not for what they give you, but for what they are. πŸƒπŸƒ

The beauty you see in them is a reflection of the Creator, so you love them. πŸƒ

Now suddenly it isn’t about what you’re getting, but rather what you can give. πŸƒ

This is unselfish love. πŸƒ

This second type of love is the most rare. πŸƒ

And if it is based in, and not competing with, the love of Allah, it will also bring about the most joy. πŸƒ

To love in any other way is to need, to be dependent, to have expectations, all the ingredients for misery and disappointment. πŸƒ

So for all those, who have spent their life seeking, know that purity of any thing is found at the source. πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒπŸŒΏπŸƒπŸŒ΄πŸŒΎ

If it is love that you seek, seek it through Allah. πŸŒΎπŸŒ΄πŸƒπŸŒΏ

Once you begin to see everything beautiful as only a reflection of God’s beauty, you will learn to love in the right way: for His sake. πŸŒΏπŸƒπŸŒ΄πŸŒΎ

Everything and everyone you love with be for, through and because of Him. πŸŒΎπŸŒ΄πŸƒπŸƒ

The foundation of such love is Allah. πŸŒ΄πŸŒΎπŸŒΏπŸƒ

So what you hold onto will no longer be just an unstable feeling, a fleeting emotion. πŸŒΏπŸƒπŸŒΎ

And what you chase will no longer be just a temporary high πŸŒΎπŸƒπŸƒ

What you hold, what you chase, what you love, will be Allah: the only thing stable and constant. πŸƒπŸŒΎπŸŒΏπŸŒ΄

Thereafter, everything else will be through Him. πŸŒΏπŸŒΎπŸƒ

Everything you give or take or love or don’t love, will be by Him. πŸŒΏπŸŒ΄πŸŒΎπŸƒ

This means you will love what He loves and not love what He does not love. 🌾🌴🌿

And when you do love, you will give to the creation, not for what you can get in return from them. πŸƒπŸŒΎπŸŒ΄πŸŒΏ

You will love and you will give, but you will be sufficed from Him. 🌿🌴🌾

And the one who is sufficed by Allah, is the richest and most generous of all lovers. πŸƒπŸŒΏπŸŒ΄

Your love will be by Him, for Him, and because of Him. That is love.πŸŒΎπŸƒπŸŒΏπŸŒ΄

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
