The topic of LOVE is a very controversial one but it all comes down to how each of us have been and are personally touched by the effect of love. Some say love is supposed to pass us once in our lives and some say love comes to us often, and there are so many others in different parts of the world and around us who have different opinions of it as well.
To me, this became a matter of "The Rashomon Effect". The Rashomon effect is contradictory interpretations of the same event by different people. The phrase derives from the Japanese film Rashomon, where the accounts of the witnesses, suspects, and victims of a rape and murder are all different. We have different points of view of love, each coming from a point of personal experience and circumstances, so i think it's safe to say that my views and definition of love can be valid in consideration of the explanation discussed.
How we see love and feel love majorly depends on our culture, how we were brought up, our family values; status and our experiences with life and contact with this feeling begins to have an effect on our lives right from the time we are born.
It is a never ending mystery unraveling and enclosing at it's own will, affecting and influencing lives and decisions of millions of people every day, every second creating and destroying destinies, reshaping cultures and decisions.
If you think of it - LOVE is the most powerful of all emotions gifted to life.

It is very puzzling and suffocating that our attention is sprawled over a bazillion different areas all in the same time, It came to a point where it’s getting worse and worse everyday. I mean we are always communicating be it in person, phone or the internet, but what bothers me most is that we are losing the personal touch. We are watching television while talking on the phone and while doing all of that maybe writing something or applying nailpolish or whatever or better yet maybe even stuffing our face with food all in the same time.
I want to speak about the importance of how our focus and attention given, projected and received in the right way can immensely effect the quality of our relationships in our daily lives in a positive way, because if I am talking to you in person and checking my phone and reply texts and messages online all at the same time, you can be sure that the quality of our conversation will not be as fruitful as it would have been if my focus was directed to you in the right conversation rather than being all over the place.
Conversation is a two way street, there is a give and take that takes place. Focus and attention in communication is an extreme necessity for the benefits of the conversation taking place. We need to listen more, understand more before we reply and for that we need attention and focus directed in that specific conversation – one at a time, one at a time.
So next time, If you are having a conversation with someone in person or on the phone, concentrate and understand on what is actually being said before you say something or reply without diverting your attention constantly on something else and trust me, you will start changing the quality of relationships that you have around you, with your loved ones - family, friends, colleagues and anyone you come in contact with.
The whole intent of communication is connection, if i don't have your attention - i am sorry there is no connection.
