Lust.. or Love..?

People tend to get confused or mix up these two – Lust and Love! What is lust..? What is love..? Lust is purely physical. When those hormones hit your brain, you’ll crave for sex. This thought is generally termed as lust. Now here comes the tough question; what is love..? If you ask this question to 100 people, you may get 100 different answers and that is the main difference between lust and love.

Love is subjective and hence cannot be completely defined with just one statement. We have often heard adjectives and statements like, Love is blind (does that mean it has eyes, but no vision), True Love (Okay, so why don’t u say True Lust when those physical feelings are also real?!) etc. Also, we use Heart symbol to denote Love. Does our heart really have something to do with Love..? It has been ages since people relate brain with logic and heart with love. Let us keep it as such for the time being 🙂

Love is the purest emotion which is quite flexible and exist in many forms. We know it exist, but how do we feel it?! Yes, mainly through our physical body. Be it a smile, a gaze, a touch, a hug or a kiss.. Whatever! You ‘express’ your love.. If so, Sex isn’t a way to express Love..?! There comes the twist.. We have two hearts.. One is physical which is safely placed in our chest cavity and beats approx 72 times per minute. Other one is the spiritual heart which cannot be seen as a physical form.. It can only be felt. (Note Please : Here, Spirituality is not connected to any religion. What I meant by spirituality is simply existing in a higher plane with full awareness! 🙂 )
Normally when love is felt by physical heart, you have a tendency to express it physically – hugs, kisses etc. When it is felt by the spiritual heart, that’s entirely different! You may not need a body to express it.. it is simply felt somewhere deep inside.. Soul..? May be.. Feelings are considered to be the language of soul.. So the next question, which is good? Well.. both of them are good and serves different purposes! There are no rights or wrongs here.. Everything is subjective in the world of Love. Love resides within us. And the other person just acts as a catalyst for that experience. Whether you physically express it or not – that’s purely your choice. If you are happy with expressing, do it. Otherwise, don’t. But it should naturally come.. Don’t ever force yourself or act. That’s the most important rule in the world of Love!

When you get physically intimate with a person you love, your spiritual heart (deep feelings) also gets involved in the act. That is why it is called love making and not just sex. You wont get that feeling of oneness otherwise. Yeah, sex can be done with anyone to satisfy your physical needs, but love making can be done only when there is Love!
Share yourself only with the person you Love.. Share your’self’.. It has a deeper meaning.. 🙂
