Perfect Love

The world would have us to believe that love comes with a set of pretenses. All too often we hear people try to justify loving another person. They say because it’s my mother or father ; they say it’s because they are good to me ; they say it’s because I’ve known them for so long. In truth, love is a choice we make. We either decide to love someone or we don’t. And, yes, there are as many justifications for not loving as there for loving.

We seek to justify love or the lack thereof out of fear. We are afraid that the love we have is not perfect. We’re afraid it call upon us to do something that we may not want to do or that we will fail to do. It’s understandable and it’s egregious because we typically project those feelings onto those people we love, are trying to love, or are afraid to love.

But love is a removing of the masks our lives force us to wear. Love is a willingness to have our souls stripped bare before another human being. Love is a disarming of the weapons we carry to protect us from heartbreak. At any time if we should not be willing to e defenseless and transparent, we have offended love and should not expect love to grace us.

Love is only perfect when it is unconditional. When we love regardless of the flaws we find and simply because we can, then is love perfect. Our only desire for love must be to have it, keep it and cultivate it. Everything else is a perversion, a contamination, that makes love less than perfect.

Violet Ambitions are fueled by a perfect love.
