The Season Of Love

Love

Season is defined as the usual, proper or suitable time for something.
Season is also defined as a period when a particular activity takes place.
Both definitions attach a time frame to when certain activities should be performed or are usually perfomed.
The activity of interest in this case is love.
Do you have a definition for love?
Is there a special season for love?
Well, in as much as I would like to know your own personal perspective, I have a vague idea of the general perspective and ofcourse, I have my perspective.
The general perspective of love hovers around a very strong affection. This perspective often narrows this strong affection to particular people. Love is often associated with relationships.
What is your own perspective?

As defined earlier, season is a period when a particular activity takes place.
So, is there a season for love?

As soon as we stepped into Febuary, there seemed to be a general atmosphere of “love in the air”.
What’s that?
Does February feel different?
Does it have something to do with February 14th?
Is love in the air because of the Valentine’s day?
Is February the season of love?
Is February 14th the day of love?
Or is Valentine’s day the day for love?
I really don’t know what your opinion is, but I don’t have a problem with people celebrating days and seasons.
Days and seasons have a way of creating awareness and generating publicity.
But I see a problem somewhere.
The general notion is often adulterated and the adulterated version often spreads like wildfire.
Is love a celebration?
How can love be celebrated?
Are there special seasons for celebrating love?
Good!
Some questions certainly cannot have a wrong answer, they are intended to instigate reflection.
Have you considered pondering about the concept of love and seasons?
Do you think that love has been adulterated?
Do you think that the adulterated version of love has spread like wildfire?
Alright, you are not wrong. There is probably some insinuation here.
I look around these days and I see vulnerable people gulping concepts that make them more prone to be preyed upon.
I often see some people taking advantage of other peoples’ ignorance or mis-information to manipulate emotions.
I love it when I see a sincere heart expressing true love, but I’m disgusted when I see all manner of manipulations in the name of love.
I accept a season to share, to care, to be gracious and to be merciful.
I accept a season to exchange gifts and to reassure commitment.
I understand that many people may be too carried away with routine that if there were no special days, there would be no special expression.
Special expressions come from special people.
Artificial people try to mimic special people, so they make out a special time to do the things that special people world ordinarily do at all times.

This brings me to my recommendation!
I may have accepted special days and special seasons, because they may also have a predominantly good side, but rather than recommend a special season, I often recommend a special culture. To maintain a special culture, I recommend a special nature.
At this juncture of culture and nature, I would like to point out the superiority of culture over artificial seasons and nature over cultre.
If love means to care and to share, to put a smile on each face that you can, and to make each soul that you come across breathe easier, then love is a beautiful thing.
If there is a season of love, then love would only thrive within the period suitable for it.
If love were to be a culture, then it would be practiced round the clock; through times and seasons.
If love is a nature, then it would be expressed with ease and would even be the default response or reaction to stimulus.
If love is your nature, then love would also be your reflex action.
If there were no seasons of love, I may never have been inspired to write about love.
If there were no cultures of love, I would probably not have known about love.
If there were no nature of love, I might not have been existing in the first place.

You’ve got love inside of you!
Find love, express love beyond the season, practice love above your culture and exude love to the point that you become one with love.
Become peaceful, loving, caring, gracious and merciful; that’s the secret to becoming joyful.
Love lifts the lowly from the dungeon.
Love brings light to the world.
Tell me about how you can truly express love.

About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on Love teeceecounsel, much to ponder on, There is a big differance between mans fleshy love and God’s Love, they not the same as man’s, we need His Love if we are to Love Him and others , ask and we will receive and this includes Faith if we have doubts, then by putting our flesh to death by The Spirit and being Born again we have His Love and we will show we do. If we Love someone we will choose by our actions and words to show it, which is why Love is an action not just a word and yes it is also an emotion, but when love is motivated by the flesh it is selfish.

    God tells us in 1 John 5:2-4 By this we know that we Love the children of God, when we Love God, and keep His Commandments. For this is the Love of God, that we keep His Commandments: and His Commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is Born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

    When we Love, we don’t want to hurt God or others that is what all of God’s Commandments are about, so how do we know if someone Loves in their heart, it is shown in their words and actions, they will choose to Love and by God’s empowering they will .

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne

    Walk in Love

    • You are right on point, Anne!
      There seems to be a way of the world and the way of God, in loving.
      I agree with you that the love of the world is a selfish type of love, while to love God’s way entails selflessness.
      It is our responsibility to love. And loving means to caring for the needs of others and responding to them, without selfish interests.
      We have it in us to love, but we need to put flesh aside.
      I always appreciate your response, because you often read in between the lines and bring up unseen details and scriptural analogies.
      Remain blessed!

    To me, seasons of love and the part that makes it seem festive is simple- money. Businesses will use every possible way to make money!
    Though I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing that they perhaps created this festivity, because just because there may is the market associated festivity, it does not always translate to a superficial sense of love. It sometimes becomes a little bland if, say you are living with someone and you’re both working a lot. Sure you both love each other and you do as much as you can to show it, however, there’s no ROMANTICISM In that! Maybe valentines day then becomes a nice designated time to set aside time for just YOU TWO, no other distractions!

    My definition of love is: the other person’s happiness becomes your priority.
    Sure, love is multidimensional etc, but I come from a scientific background I like to boil things down to a single formula/equation/ concept :p

    I do feel like, it is not as romantic as everyone thinks it is. I feel like one can actually make oneself fall in love with someone with practice- but of course, some people are easier to love than others.

    But, I think all my thoughts vary a bit depending on the nature of the relationship, eg siblings, parents/kids, significant other

    • I love how well rounded you are in your understanding of love!
      Love considers the happiness of the other person; that was really an outstanding point.
      Some people usually hold other people’s emotions with promises that they do not intend to keep, while they enjoy all that the other person has to offer.
      I don’t consider that as love. As regards emotions and romance, love should be mutual and not intended to exploit.
      I am always of the opinion that love reaches beyond emotions; anybody can stimulate emotions with words, looks and some gentle touch. Anybody can respond to those things. But to be commited to a persons welfare, happiness and dreams through thick and thin (willingly and joyfully)is to truly love.
      Love includes friendships, family relationships, neighbours, acquitances, etc. You have a broad coverage of it.
      Love is vast and beautiful, it is worth exploring, enjoying and employing.
      Love makes life beautiful.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  5. My husband and I don’t really make a fuss over Valentine’s Day however I do enjoy making VDay cards for my children to give out at school it reminds me of my elementary school years with the nuns preparing my mail box out of a shoe box, decorating it and leaving a small opening on the cover where my classmates would deposit their VDay cards and I’d leave mine with a little candy… Totally innocent and joyful… I hope my children have lovely memories of this day!! šŸ™‚
