Rated REAL – Love At First Sight? {Guest Post}

Love is such a powerful word though its context is usually misrepresented. Its so hard to give one general symbolic definition for a word that God himself uses to define how he feels towards us. Such beauty, art, and creation all comprised into one simple four letter word, its agape love that compels us . It kind of shows how important the little things are right? But for those who appreciates its meaning, I commend you. 
This generation has seemed to shift the focus of love and highlighted small features that are compounded in the word love. One feature being passion. Passion itself cannot stand alone to define love but somehow this generation confuses and mistakes this word for love itself. Passion is not love but a component of it. Passion is an emotional DESIRE towards something. Love is so much more than passion itself. Love is commitment. Love is attachment. Love is sacrifice. Love is blind, but it is also light. 

Love is worth living for but more importantly its worth dying for. Love is God…… 
Love is different for everyone. For some, love is waking up and seeing the person they’ve been dreaming of laying beside them. For some, love is kissing their son as they fluff their pillow and pull their cover over them. For some, love is being able to wake up in the morning and see the sunrise. But for some, love is the universe itself. Even though all of our experiences with love are different, you would be a fool to deny its presence and relevance. To deny love would mean to deny your own existence. Love is not a word or a verb but a concept which require implementation. I remember an occasion when someone asked me “Do you believe in love at first sight?” I pondered on the question…… My initial reaction was to reply, “of course not that is absurd” but before I could answer the question I had an epiphany…….

Why couldn’t it exist? They say there is someone out there for everyone but has anyone thought about how it must feel when you first encounter this person? If its two people destined to be together then during their creation, something must have been placed within their souls to draw them to one another. As they were being designed, a supernatural compound must have been confounded and constructed within their minds. Almost like a time bomb. I can only imagine the feeling the explosion creates when those two people meet and they detonate destiny, its providence! Could this be love at first sight? But what if two people are destined to be but the explosion isn’t as explosive as it should have been? What could have deterred this undesirable resistance between the two? 
 
 
I have one possible explanation; Maybe this idea that during this journey in finding each other, the two people gave pieces of themselves to other people who they were not designed for? Maybe, one of the two fell in love before? What if that person had sex with someone that they were not designed for? Maybe love at first sight doesn’t work because some of the dynamite was detonated on the wrong people. People were so sure that they found the one but in actuality it wasn’t. So that moment when they finally encounter their real true love, the explosion wasn’t robust. Would it be possible to use all your dynamite on all the wrong people and when you finally meet you destined lover, no explosion occurs? Can we miss out on our soul mates because we refuse to be patient and let fate be our cupid? But regardless of my ideology love at first sight, to deny that love at first sight doesn’t occur is obscene.

To say this phenomenon doesn’t occur is obscure. When a mom holds her child for the first time, is that not love at first sight? Love at first sight occurs, we just don’t realize it does. But I love to indulge myself in the seemingly impossible.  The human mind, body, and soul is a complex, though deviant, creation. But I will close with this; God is love and he loved us before we loved ourselves. Pure, beautiful, perfect, agape love. Asa Lama Laka and praises to the most high.

  1. I agree with a lot of this..yet I dont believe in love in first sight..its possible to really like or feel a xonnection but I feel God has placed special someone for all of us but if we dont trust God n constantly date others without gettin the go ahead it will lead to us feelin like there is nobody for us n lead to us missin out on that special somebody or we meet that person but date or be serious at the wrong time..thus leadin to heartbreaks n other issues..so mainly I feel its on us to feel the right kind of love n simply not rush into something serious without bein sure on it-Chris Jay

  4. I agree with a lot of this but I dont really believe in love in first sight. Its possible to really like someone or feel a connection but I feel God has placed special someone for all of us. However, we as human beings constantly date others without asking God if this is what He wants us to do. I feel that this neglectance leads us feelin like there is nobody for us, or missin out on that special somebody, or we met that person but date them because we feel its at the wrong time which leads to heartbreaks n other issues. I think its up to us to feel the right kind of love n not rush into something serious without bein sure on it. Love is pure and unselfish. Before u can love or even think about dating, u have to ask God first but ultimately it is up to Him. But doesn't that make us selfish if we don't ask God what He wants us to do. If we ignore Him, there will be consequences such as heartbreaks or whatever else. After all, He has power over EVERYTHING!

  5. Dope article. I don't exactly believe in love at first sight though because you can feel that sensation with more than one person. Who is to say I won't meet a guy today and feel as though it's love at first sight and turn around to meet another guy and feel the same way.

  6. I dont know whether to believe in love at first sight. I can take the example of a mother and child and say that as soon as the mother sees her child she is instantly in love, but thats not true because when you think about it this mother and child have made a bond with one another for 6+ months, which is ample enough to grow a bond of affection and love. Or When you meet someone I dont believe it can be love at first sight, the person may only be infatuated with their looks or charm, but who is to say that you wont meet someone else and feel the same way. Love is God, although no one has ever seen him we have all felt him and like you said yes he loved us before we loved ourselves, but its not at first sight. To truely love and know Christ, you have to bond with him. I think true love takes bonding and time to develop.

  7. I believe in love at first site, but also believe love is experience. Yes, you can have love with the wrong people, but experience, or successes and failures especially shape love and appreciation. You appreciate the good because of where you've been, what you've been through. I believe most of all in destiny. Everything happens for a reason whether we brush shoulders with our true love and didn't know it and kept walking. We have multiple soul-mates I believe, because people off-center of us change just like humans tend to do. Love is complex, content relatively unique. Start with yourself, KOS, knowledge of self, and everything trickles down from there, aside destiny.
