The realities of love are often perplexing, seemingly hard to understand. The bible tells us to guard our hearts, for everything we do flows from it. Does it guarantee immunity from pain? Does love favor the bravest? Some people cling to the belief that shielding one’s heart will save them from getting hurt but I do not subscribe to such line of reasoning. Reality always scares us – no, it’s the tangible side of reality. Though love sometimes leads to serious distress, some people still choose to experience love because that’s the only way to unlock its mystery.
I am truly grateful for the day I allowed myself to get hurt, the day I supported my impetuous heart. The moment we commit to someone gives birth to pain because not all relationships have happy endings.
Love doesn’t mature in tranquil times; love doesn’t flourish in untilled hearts; for love to grow – we must learn how to swim against powerful tides, surpass the test of time, get even with all odds, lose some winning games, and break into tormenting zones.
Guarding your heart doesn’t mean “not” allowing ourselves getting bruises and burns. It’s definitely impossible not to get hurt in any romantic relationships. We cannot stop some forces of nature. Sometimes we injure ourselves while walking, preparing meals, or opening windows but we have to walk to reach our destination, eat to satiate our hunger or open the window to breathe some fresh air. Same goes for love, you’ll never know the magic it brings if you’re too afraid to take risks.
To guard our hearts means to be mindful of what we plant inside. According to the bible, “we harvest what we plant.” If fear, we’ll miss the thrill of life. If pride, we’ll lose some good opportunities. If greed, we’ll gain nothing but turmoil. If jealousy, we’ll see no beauty in everyone. If hatred, we’ll never find love.
Therefore, allow love to reside in your heart. Concede to its undesirable perplexities. Indulge in its biting reality. Embrace all uncertainties. Letting our hearts get broken for countless times because there are lessons learned from every fall, a pot of gold, after all.

Always follow your heart as it has no fences and no guarantees that you will not experience pain. Grounded let your heart reflect or in flight let your heart soar
indeed… there is no guarantee… so why hold ourselves… lets go with the flow 🙂
Exactely. Sometimes the love is greater that we have experienced than the pain we tend to forget when we break up
Why is it that you always seem to say what I need to hear at exactly the right moment? Thank you quirky ❤
I feel the same way Jessica Jordan about QuirkyShines post. Especially after what I beautifully experienced today on Mothers Day. Honestly, its been such a marvelous day filled with love.
Thank you so much Jessica ❤❤ hugs for you 😊
This inspires me to “write” another new poem of a message. This time less story-filled, yet more essay styled. I’ve already managed to realized the title. Which is associated with this. Its about “simplicity” and the transcendence of such when we are experiencing (emanating) Universal DIVINE Love. I might not remember to write this essay-poem because I’ve been contemplating this for many years. Each time I say to myself or jot it down that I’ll write it, I get put on another path or course with loves most unusual (Mystical Meta Mysteries). This time I’ll slow it all down just enough to finally write that poem.
Harvesting and planting right now has been a big deal for the recent days. With a new garden I am constructing, building, cocreating.
I am really happy I get to inspire you and many others to write… thank you very much for using my posts as your inspiration… please keep your pen burning… express till your hearts content ￼￼￼ satiate! ￼￼
