Protecting your heart – Part III

We often search for love with misplaced expectations, thinking that it will be neatly packaged for our ready consumption.

It isn’t.

It won’t be.

Hoping for as much is a fools errand.

A common misconception is that we can relegate the complex to the realm of simplicity – only for it to overflow the borders that we tried to constrain it in.

A square peg will never fit into a round hole – and love is the very thing that this phenomenon falls victim to.

We treat protecting our heart as a afterthought instead of a survival strategy.

Love is an essential element of our humanity – as it is very thing that separates us from the animals.

Love is energy.

Consider this…

The first law of thermodynamics, also known as the Law of Conservation of Energy, states that:

Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another.

Could it be that if we were able to apply this equation against what we think we know about love – that the clarity that we assume isn’t ours to be had, could finally be within our grasp?

We walk this Earth on borrowed time – eventually bearing witness to losing those whose love has served to define us.


We mourn.

But, should we?

As energy can’t be destroyed, it merely changes form, right?
