Love Street

"She lives on love street..." basically there is someone for everyone maybe even me! People say let it happen and yet I am never going to understand that concept. Voltaire writes we need to cultivate our own garden. I feel love is something that does not have to occur spontaneously. Love is beautiful, with who and when will I know it? :)

Voltaire is saying you might wake up one morning and find that the universe has decided that a garden should magically appear outside your house, but it's more likely to appear if you prepare the ground and set conditions to encourage that.<br />
I've heard it said that luck is where opportunity meets preparation. <br />
I believe love arises between people who are open to a connection, are prepared to give of their time and energy for no other reason than that they enjoy the joy it brings the other. In this fertile ground, love can develop from seeds of attraction, compassion or lust into some variety of love.

Amazing response....I will contemplate on this response! :)

Remember that you don’t choose love. LOVE CHOOSES YOU. All you can really do is accept it for all its mystery when it comes into your life. Feel the way it fills you to overflowing, then reach out and give it away. Give it back to the person who brought it alive in you. Give it to others who deem poor in spirit. Give it to the world around you in anyway you can. This is where many lovers go wrong. Having been so long without love, they understand love only as a need. They see their hearts as empty places that will be filled by love, and they begin to look at love as something that flows to them rather than from them. Remember this, and keep it to your heart. Love has its own time, its own seasons, and its own reason for coming and going. You cannot bribe it or coerce it, or reason it into staying. You can only embrace it when it arrives and give it away when it comes to you. But if it chooses to leave from your heart or from the heart of your lover, there is nothing you can do and there is nothing you should do. Hugs*

I totally agree but with one point, I believe you have to be open for love to occur ... meaning that within itself is a choice. Otherwise I totally agree with your reply. Great advice and POV.

:) that is true too...
