Why Loving Is a Choice, But Love Isn’t…

By Jo Warwick, Guest Contributor

There are two things we’ll never have control over – LOVE and DEATH

Even as powerful as we have the potential to be, and as important as we often like to believe we are, with LOVE and death, its like gazing at the night’s sky.

The simplicity and magnitude is too enormous to truly comprehend…

All we can do is be in awe and respect their force and purpose and concentrate on what we do have choice over – to be loving or not…


Loving is an act of kindness – consideration, care and respect!

It is the choice of currency we choose to interact with each other and ourselves.

It is the choice to to open up and share our gifts of joy, laughter, honesty and individuality and a willingness to accept Loving from the people/ animals and the world around us.

Loving is who we’re naturally born to be as children…

Sometimes Loving as an adult though means making the tough choice to set a boundary or end a relationship, because LOVE is leading you somewhere new.


Loving creates more loving, something we must have to be healthy…

No amount of Loving though will create LOVE!

Nor will any amount pleasing, entertaining, sex, planning, thinking, manipulation or bullying will make someone love you or you them, because LOVE is not in our power.

LOVE happens to us…

It might seem unfair at times, but LOVE does not forget, judge, hate,or punish.

LOVE just is!


For LOVE time and distance does not diminish it’s force, but increases it; like the swell building momentum…

Even if we waste our energy to resist it, block it, halt it, delay it,deny it, turn our back on it, stop being Loving and close down, because we’re afraid; at some point we all usually do, I’ve certainly tried  – LOVE will always win!

Like sandbags trying to block an oncoming tsunami; our actions are nothing against it’s power.

LOVE like the water will wash over all manner of debris to clear it’s path, tenderising you in the process, ready for its planned destination.

So when your time comes and it will, and LOVE chooses you, its best to be brave and surrender; like the surfer riding the wave, just trust and let the wave carry you forward.

Then give it time to unfold; for the ocean always meet the shore, just as LOVE always finds its way.

    My favorite subject!

    Love is like the stars, love is in everything and is everything.

    Without love there is nothing.

    Without love there can be nothing.

    Love is eternal.

    To truly experience love, you must love unconditionally.

    I will finish with some of the most powerful words you can say to someone.

    I..Love..You ♥♥

    Great article! I agree, you can’t make another person love you, but just being loving and kind to others goes a long way and will reward you in the end. Love really is the most important thing in life, and without it the world would be a very sad and sorry place.

    Eh eh eh…. don’t get wrong! or at least let’s explain “all it” a bit further!!!

    I do responde do this article in relation to the “Why do bad things happen…” and its positive thinking.

    Firts I would say love is all. Love do not belong to or related to another person, but is the universe and all that is love.

    Therefore love for another person do it is not love we all things, except for those who have a long and peacefull relationship without believe og “love” and romanticism …… ahahah

    This is the key to all that matter in this reality…
