love, done right, can change the world
In order to hear Love’s words, you must allow Love to approach.
All lovers know this, but refuse to accept it. They think they can seduce Love through submission, power, beauty, wealth, tears and smiles.
True Love, however, is the love that seduces and will never allow itself to be seduced.
Love transforms, love heals. But sometimes it lays deadly traps and ends up destroying the person who decided to surrender himself completely. How can the force that moves the world and keeps the stars in their places be, at once, so creative and so devastating?
We are used to thinking that what we give is the same as what we receive, but people who love, expecting to be loved in return, are wasting their time.
