Precious Romance
Rolf A. F. Witzsche

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Love is joy in the beauty of another," said the poet, but universal love is much more than that.
It is joy in the beauty of life as we enrich one another in its vast dimensions.

 

Love is also a paradox. In an ecstasy of love we marry, and then erect fences around one another in an orgy of possessive self-centeredness. We aim to own one another, exploit one another, make demands of one another, all in the name of love.

If love unites us by the nature of its principle, why do we shy away from it in our selfish exclusion? If joy in the beauty of one another causes one to marry, why not expand the process to embrace the whole world, to enrich the whole world, even as we are are enriched by love?
