Love Byte # 22 - History of Love - Guest Post by Teresa

Hi, my name is Teresa and my Blog is Checa LA movie . It is all about Movies !!! I am from Mexico. I have been living in the United States for 15 years. I am a mother. I have my Bachelors Degree of Communications Sciences from the Universidad de Monterrey, Mexico. I have forth my knowledge under many positions, including Anchor and Reporter. In this new chapter of my life, I have dedicated myself to using my knowledge to explore the world of "Blogging: and share my real passion: "The Art of Film". The fact that I think / write mostly in Spanish does not deter me from doing this guest post for Priya, whose blog is as unique as her ..Isn't she lovely ?? Long version is in Spanish !!



Mi imaginación sin límites me invita a compartir con ustedes un cuento. Un cuento de "Amor" en el que resumo mi apreciación sobre la importancia que damos comercialmente a esta celebración, olvidándonos poner en práctica este sentimiento los 364 días restantes. Por cierto, soy Fan de Disney, así que me encantan los cuentos de príncipes y princesas.

"… Había una vez una princesita cuya virtud principal era la nobleza envuelta en un enorme corazón. Su amor era tan grande, que de acuerdo a su madre, no cabía en el castillo. La Reina decidió guardar el amor de la princesa en botecitos para regalarlo a quienes lo necesitaban. Pero extrañamente los adultos fingían o ignoraban a la pequeña, ya que el amor era lo menos importante en su vida. La Reina comenzó a llenar las bódegas con tarros, ya que aparentemente nadie lo necesitaba. Un día llego una pareja desolada por una decepción que solicito el primer envase. El resultado de su uso se convirtió en una leyenda tan popular que las demandas de los botes de amor llegaron de todos los rincones de la tierra y entoncés la Reina comenzó a comercializarlo. La niña se sintió muy triste, su capacidad para amar y apreciar los pequeños detalles disminuyo. Un día la princesita decidió liberar el poco amor capturado y que la suave brisa se encargara del resto. Así que sin ser anunciado, sin protocolos, sin presiones, el amor comenzó a esparcirse por todos lados y la primera que la aspiro y suspiro ante lo sublime de un atardecer de colores sepia, fue la princesa. La Reina avergonzada por su avaricia se dio cuenta que en el Castillo había lugar para el amor de su princesa y que perdía su magia cuando había monedas de oro de por medio. La calma volvió al recinto y de ahí en adelante, el amor dejo de ser un objeto comercial en el Reino y recuperó su autenticidad. El amor de la princesa y sus virtudes crecieron al mismo tiempo que se convertía en una hermosa jovencita. Encontró a su príncipe azul y decidieron no capturar el amor sino compartirlo y celebrar todos los días como si fuera el "Día de San Valentín"… y Vivieron felices para siempre.

Este es solo un cuento, pero los invito a reflexionar ya que solemenos condicionar y capturar el amor de acuerdo a nuestra conveniencia. No es justo solo dejemos libre y amemos. A nuestros hijos, nuestra pareja, nuestros amigos, nuestras vidas, pero sobre todo a nosotros mismos.

If I translate the story it would go like this... actually it is like a shorter version, because I use too many adjectives in Spanish.. lol

"... There was once a Princess who had a huge heart filled with love .. Her love was so great that her mother, the Queen, asked her to place all her love in little jars and bottles and give it only to those who needed it. The Princess obeyed and began storing her love in jars and bottles of all shapes and sizes, but when she asked people if they needed love, strangely no one wanted it. Princess was disappointed because people had no time for love in their lives, or perhaps love was less important on their list of priorities. However , one fine day came a couple devastated by disappointment and asked for love... She gave them a jar with immense faith in the power of love and soon enough all their troubles disappeared. News of this spread and the demand for love came from all corners of the world. The Queen realised she could make money out of it; but as soon as she placed a price on love, the Princess's magical love powers diminished so much so that she found herself incapable of spreading love. The Princess was wise enough to know true love was unconditional and that love would only grow and spread if it was free for all , and so she opened all the jars and bottles and let love free. Soon, love blossomed for the Princess also, she found her Prince Charming and they decided never to capture their love. Instead share it every day of the year. They made everyday a Valentine's day and lived happily ever after.."

This is just an imaginary story, but I invite you to reflect on the fact that Love is not at our convenience. Let it spread all around. It is fair. Love.. Love your children, love your partner, love your friends, love your live, but most of all love yourself.
