MATURE LOVE – by Kurt April (August 2011)


Dependence on another’s willingness


Love requires patience

Waiting for another’s readiness

Readiness to respond

Readiness to give


One has to choose to be meek

Not knowing what would happen

In order to find the powerful – the Other

It’s a conscious choice, a mature choice

It requires a handing over of power

To surrender to something greater

To surrender to life itself


A mature relatedness

Long-lasting commitment

Never a false surrender


Never an insincere gesture

Love seeks to bring contribution to society

A creation, possibilities, a larger whole


But remains a paradoxical condition of strength

Which only emerges through yielding
