“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 among 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 life.
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 empathy, forbearance, graciousness and humanity.
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 heart and mind. It comes from counting our blessings and being grateful for what The Divine 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 exact same thing.
Unhappy is the heart who has not loved and miserable is the heart who has not been touched by kindness.

Hi Zeenat, I have found that having love, kindness, and happiness be the guiding light of my life gives me peace of mind. That approach feels better and keeps me calms and centered. I like your reminder about the glass being half full or half empty. I have found it is important to notice what the positive aspects of life and to have gratitude.
Hi Zeenat. Wonderful thoughts. I practice random acts of kindness each day in the hope that someone who needed to know they are valued as fellow human beings gets the support they deserve. It never hurts to be kind.
A beautiful post Zeenat! Often we resist uncomfortable feelings and try to cover them up with lots of noise and activity. By slowing down and listening within, we can learn to love all parts of ourselves and grow in kindness for ourselves and others. xx
Your article is beautiful Zeenat and very heartfelt. Kindness is one of the most important aspects of life we can share with each other. The best part – it’s free and non-toxic!
The Beatles were right when they said: “Love is all there is!”
Wonderful discussion. I found that love that has lost its kindness strangles a relationship slowly but surely. Bringing back kindness works miracles.
I love these thoughts. Love and kindness are the basis for all goodness in life…and it starts with extending these to yourself. Only then, can you expand to really give it freely to others. Kindness DOES work miracles – for yourself and others.
Great and inspiring ideas Zeenat. Loving kindness is good for us all.
Beautifully said, Zeenat. So true that love and kindness rule all other emotions and also lead the way to happiness.
