It’s absurd that we choose a day to celebrate love, then tagged it #loveday. We shouldn’t set aside a day to celebrate love. Everyday should be a celebration of love. Love theory is more than a verb. It should be a lifestyle. It should be a culture and it should be the air we breathe. It is all that and more, I don’t care, if it’s an agape, romantic, platonic and material love is love.
Michael Jackson wrote so many songs on love. Local pastors teach every sunday on and the Bible said the greatest commandments is love. but the tiny voices in us, won’t allowed us be great and express it to others. We see being compassionate and kind towards others as being too simply. So we put on the coat of a little bit of silly attitude and a little bit of hatred to last us eternity. It’s a known fact that people sometimes take advantage others kindness. That shouldn’t stop us from following the love theory.
Welcome to Africa where there are so many tribes, religion, political party loyalists with cultural difference. Where every tribes want to claimed superior. So many cold war within us. You see someone struggling instead of rendering help, you laugh, video them and post on social media.
You spread all false rumour about people, tarnishing their names to feel good about yourself. You spread lies and hatred wherever you go. You laugh at the misfortune of others especially those you had misunderstanding with.
Do you notice the more your heart is fill with resentments, there are tendencies for it to reflect on your physical appearance. No amount of cosmetics could cover it up.
Love theory involve loving your family too. Reverend Sam Oye of the Transforming Church once said “do not love the world at the expense of your family”. Charity begins at home. Love each other so much that the is no room for rivalry and hatred. Wish them well, pray for them, pray for world peace, pray for the everything and everyone. If you want a change in the world. Start with yourself and spread it around.
If you find it difficult express affection or maybe because you were hurt in the past or not. Practice this simple methods. Try as much as possible to let go of everything. It is hard to but try. Dwell your mind on positive thoughts, do not give a space for hate. Tell people up front when they hurt you, avoid sticky situations, don’t count evil against people. Pour out your mind and let it go. Avoid unnecessary argument. Make a conscious effort to dwell your mind on positive things only. It is hard but try. Spread the same vibe to people around you.
Stop condemning people way of life and religion. If you don’t share the same sentiment and belief with others don’t judge them. Live and let’s live that’s what love theory is all about
