Long Live Love!

February 14 is known as the day of love, the day of lovers.

And it’s really worth celebrating the love that couples have for each other.

What a beautiful feeling, a feeling that fills the heart and soul with joy, with dreams, with enthusiasm, with passion.

How lucky, how blessed, I would say, are the people who love truly, sincerely, innocently, with all the power of their soul – there is nothing that they would not do for each other.

Of course, love has various forms, but in whatever shape it comes, it plays a central role in human life. Life without love is lifeless.

There is the love of parents for their children and vice versa. There is the love between friends – and there is love in its classic Christian form that is directed towards all fellow human beings, including enemies.

If one actually reaches that point, where he loves even his enemies, then he has attained a great achievement. He has not only honored and exalted himself, he has placed his life on the true path of Salvation.

Man’s character by nature tends, unfortunately, to evil. It takes effort to place one’s self on the right track.

But love is spontaneous. At least when it comes to true love, because we cannot help but do only good things for the people we are in love with. You either feel it or you don’t.

However, with struggle and effort man can escape from ‘original sin’ and live a complete ethical and also healthy, happy life.

So, long live love!

Ζήτω η αγάπη!
