Sometimes a love can enter into your heart that feels so beautiful and pure you just want to capture it, put it in a bottle and hold it forever. I have come to learn that love is both precious and alive, it’s part of the others soul that is offered as a gift. When held with respect this gift can be met by our own soul, who job it is to reach out and bask in its beauty. If we try to own love, it will be crushed and die, no part of anyone’s soul can live with such constraints. 

Maybe love is only ever a fleeting moment. Some moments last a few seconds and some a whole carnation and beyond in the way of direct experience. It’s power however can change you forever, even if it visits you briefly. May we all learn to be thankful for love others have given us and not let our desires crush the soul of those who have offered us the gift of love.
