Humans are social animals ,they lives in groups,society.

Their life depends less on instinct than other animals, and more on learning/thoughts,

because they want to live in society.

Humans are rational beings,because they think.

And they have choices.

In modern society,self centeredness is increasing.

.Being human is given,but keeping humanity is a choice.

An individual experiences himself,

his thoughts and feelings seperate from the rest.

this is a delusion.

And a cause for so much agony.

Restricting ourselves to our own personal desires and to affection.

This is our prison.

We call it as personal life..

a chrysalis,pupa

when will we turn into butterflies?

getting out of our comfortzone

into a path of self renounciation.

As human beings our greatness is not in remaking world but in remaking ourselves

By widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures

And the whole of nature in its beauty.

Love is a  feeling of affection…like a butterfly on a lovely rose petal ,

Love is a pleasurable state of mind….like kissing you under an apple tree,in rain,

Love is a positive attitude……like reflection of nature on a calm river,

It is a strong  attraction and emotional attachment…like the sun and sunflower,

“the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”

……..like a fragile flame of a melting candle.

“An active appreciation of the intrinsic worth of the object of love.”

…….like a blossoming cherry in a beautiful spring season.

Love is not hate,the scorpion in your hat.

Love is not lust,wolf’s eyes on a lamb

Love is not just friendship,although the word love is often applied to close friendships.

however, love unusually difficult to consistently define, compared to other emotional states.

I can only say…..I love you…and…. feel the kisses.

Love is these goosebumps of blissful excitement.

 

 

 

 

The Apple of your eye

It states that; Isaac Newton first thought of his system of gravitation which he hit upon by observing an apple fall from a tree , The incident occurring in the late summer of 1666. In other accounts it is stated that Newton was sitting in his garden at  Woolsthorpe Manor  near Grantham in Lincolnshire when the incident occurred.

The apple became a symbol for knowledge

The popular christian tradition holds that  the Eve was cheated  by a serpent, and she  tempted Adam,and they ate an apple  from the forbidden tree in the Garden of Eden.

The apple became a symbol of temptation and sin

But, when Christ is portrayed holding an apple (new covenant), he represents the Second Adam who brings life.

The apple became a symbol of  new life.

In the love songs of the song of Solomon ,the apple is used in a sensual context.

In Greek mythology,Atlanta, raced all her suitors in an attempt to avoid marriage. She outran all but Hippomenes  (Melanion), who defeated her by cunning, not speed. Hippomenes knew that he could not win in a fair race, so he used three golden apples (gifts of Aphrodite, the goddess of love) to distract Atalanta. It took all three apples and all of his speed, but Hippomenes was finally successful, winning the race and Atalanta’s hand.

The apple became a symbol of love and sexuality.

The secular art as well made use of the apple as  a symbol of love and sexuality.An apple, from an aerial view,symbolize the  love sign.

In Greek mythology,the Garden of the Hesperides is Hera’s orchard in the west, where  a single apple tree  producing  golden apples that grant immortality when eaten

The Greek hero Hercules  as a part of his twelve labors  was required to travel to the Garden of the Hesperides and pick the golden apples.

Here the apple is a symbol of immortality.

In our modern era -An apple a day keeps the doctor away- became  a symbol of health.

For me, it is a symbol of eternal  love , and I like to give it to you,My muse.

-from the bottom of my heart.

I was saving one from the mouth of a roaring sea,

Engulfing him without any mercy on the struggling soul,

When I reached the sea shore with him,

He was icy cold,

When I looked back,

I found another one ,who was drowning,

I saved him by mouth to mouth breathing,

During the resuscitation itself,

I found a third one,drowning

I was fed up with my own work,

It was futile………

Without killing the giant one on the hill top,

Pushing them into the sea,

It was futile
