Did you ever wonder what the elements of love are? For me, the most beautiful element of love is translucency. It doesn’t sound interesting but I find that the people who are the most translucent with their emotions are the most genuine and lovable. I’m sure you know someone in your family or perhaps it is a spouse that always shows affection. They hug you and sometimes embrace you so tightly that they don’t let you breathe. Translucency is about living life with an open heart. People who live like this are spiritually free because their spirits fly high. It is a beautiful way to live yet it can be painful as well.
To live with an open heart means you can and will get hurt. It takes courage to love but how wonderful it is to love. The joy we get from loving someone so deeply takes away all the pain we’ve ever experienced. I’ve been in love many times in my own life but there is one experience I never forgot. The love that took my breath away, yet because I failed to show him love, I lost him and myself at the end. Love needs to be translucent to thrive or else it withers away, gone forevermore.
