“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” ~ Maya Angelou
Love is splendorous. This feeling of a warm and deep attachment leading to enthusiasm, devotion and admiration continues to exist and grow between many varied personal relationships e.g. Man and God, Parents and Children, Brothers and Sisters, Husband and wife, Teachers and Pupils, Friends both men and women and amongst many other bonds that we human beings develop and nurture of our own free will, in our life’s journey from the earlier days of childhood to the later evenings of old age.
It is said that “love begins at the beginning and goes beyond the end”. Love is ever giving and can be described in many many ways :-
- A warm tender feeling,
- A deep affection,
- An overwhelming fondness.
- A passionate attachment,
- A profound emotional regard.
- An intensely personal relationship.
Love stands much above endearment, infatuation, attraction or enchantment, need and desire…which can wear off after a certain span of time or change of environment. Love is a many sided sacrifice ; It means Thoughtfulness for the one you love. It means, putting their good before self gratification. Love is an impulse, no doubt!!!…but true love is an impulse wisely directed and has to stand the test of time.
“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” ~ Lao Tzu
To be kind is to show and express gestures of good will, combining sympathy, forbearance, graciousness and humanism.
Kindness is a microwave that heats, thaws, heals and mends in many simple ways and manners i.e. a soothing touch; a gentle word, a warm smile, a loving look, a soft expression, a show of genuine concern, giving a helping hand, offering of support and encouragement, and sharing of feelings.
Love and Kindness open the most impossible gates to Happiness
In the pursuit of happiness both love and kindness are vital inputs. As they symbolize sharing, caring and giving of your self and add to its glow. If love is a feeling that is experienced and kindness that is felt, then Happiness is a feeling that radiates from within the heart.
Happiness is a state of mind and comes from counting our blessings and being grateful for what The Maker has given us and being content with what we are able to gain and gather because of our own dedicated and determined endeavors.
Pour some water into a glass and ask yourself the classic question -”Whether the glass is half full or half empty?” It depends how your mind reacts, because it is, in fact, only a different perspective of the same thing.
Unhappy is the heart who has not loved and miserable is the heart who has not been touched by kindness.

Love and kindness are the basic feelings…they are learnt in the lap of mother and father. How a child is responded to, how his wishes are fulfilled and how much time is spent with him determines the love and kindness, which will flow into his/her heart and then follows happiness. Where there is kindness and love, happiness has to step in spontaneously.
Thanks for spreading these lovely emotions…thanks for reminding us how they shape us…thanks for being SO positive, all the time!
Youre so right…we do learn love, kindness and happiness in the lap of our mothers. But even then, as we grow up, we let those pure feelings be over powered by the negativity of the world. Hence, constant reminders to allow those pure feelings to come out helps to get back that loving space we all really really love.
Thank you so much for your kind words.
Happiness is and always will be an inside job. Love and Kindness begin with Self. Great article Zeenat!
True that Peggy!!
So glad you liked this article 🙂
This is so true, Zeenat: “To slow down, listen and ask yourself why a particular feeling arises within is the beginning of immense happiness.” Because, as Peggy also said, happiness comes from within. I’m feeling that wish to slow down and connect deeply within. Thanks for this beautiful encouragement.
Beautiful Zeenat, when we get still and listen joy and happinees follow
what a lovely and inspiring post, Zeenat. I feel I need to read your blog every day because this is one place that evokes all the murmurs of my heart 🙂 Your writing and compassion evokes the love we should try to cultivate and live in our lives everyday. I would like to call you the ambassador for love 🙂
Thank you so much for your inspired and inspiring thoughts. My mind operates in curious ways when viewing the chicken and the egg here.
Is kindness the outworking of love that triggers happiness within? If so, then is manifesting loving kindness and experiencing happiness dependent upon how we were nurtured by role models in our early lives?
Or, is love our true nature?
If so then it explains why we are capable of manifesting loving kindness even when they weren’t role modeled for us in early life, and even when our circumstances today may make mean making the choice to act with loving kindness and be happy takes conscious effort.
