Message from Maitreya:
What is love? Many people believe love is passion, romance and intensity. It can be this. It can also be the desire to be with someone, to share their energy, and to help them in any way you can.
Love cannot be defined, it just is!
It is not however an energy which commands or controls, if one loves another, one should be able to understand the differences in your relationship, whether that be as a couple or in a family. You are all, each of you a unique individual. Completely different from each other. Even those born in multiple births have different personalities.
Love cannot be manipulated. As soon as manipulation begins, the true energy of love starts to dissolve. Much of which is involved in love is connected to past incarnations. If one has been rejected in a past incarnation, and the energy of rejection has not been dealt with, it will leave the soul with a memory in this incarnation, which will make it insecure in relationships. Love cannot work that way.
When one loves someone, one does not dictate, but allows the freedom of speech and action. One has no fear of the other leaving. On a soul becoming ill, love comes into play with the care and concern of that individual.
Love is never angry!
Love is unselfish. It will cancel an engagement because it cares and is concerned at the welfare of another. Love will sit in a hospital waiting room for as long as it takes for the person to be attended to, and then will sit by the bed in the hospital for as long as required.
Love is a smile. A smile with the right energy, one can say, “I love you”. More than anything, each soul has love inside of them, but many never use it!
