Amor con amor sepaga: love begets love

Amor con amor sepaga…

i was clearing my Outlook to be able to receive e-mail..and i happened to view this…i remember i made this for a valentine day..i was already in the company when i composed was the article i contributed to “Our Daily Bread” company folder on that v-day…natutuwa ako while re-reading it….


ayayayay pag-ibig..nakakakilig…..yan, yan ang kanta ni ara mina.(ito ung patok nun sa mga radio)..uuyy…love is on d air na naman! ..gihigugma…pagkamoot…palangga…sinta…what is love nga ba?.many have taken accounts regarding this try ko na rin i-share kung ano ang nararamdaman ko sa pag-ibig, at ano ang alam ko sa pag-ibig….nde ako c joe d mango o c doctor love but let me just share….

……….philosophically, love is a tendency or desire (hindi pagnanasa ha!..) towards an object or a’s not a tender feeling….

….TENDENCY – inclination, bent…drive..motion toward to, (not going back to the source)…DESIRE – yearn for…aspire…long for.. from the subject to the object of affection, not vice-versa….for instance, i love a rose!…the love comes from ME toward the rose!…whether the rose loves me or not, i still love the rose…no matter what….no sign of reciprocity…no expectation to be loved in return…i just love the rose…

…..NOT A TENDER FEELING…not a feeling coz feeling is fickle…but LOVE is not fickle..once i love, i always love….i do not say, i love the rose today, and i hate it tomorrow…NO….once i love, my love is already there! exists till forever…be the object of my love is lovable or not, i still have love…much that i love the rose even if it has thorns!..even the rose does not love me…..i still love it, inspite and despite of…no buts… no ifs…just because…..St Augustine says, “whenever there is love, there’s no longer pain….but, if ever there is pain, it must be pain that is loved..”….. 

… much that love still exists even if the rose gets withered….it is not dependent on the object. it lives and relives even in the absence or flight of the rose. it continues to love and love again…

one priest-professor in college (seminary) said (many will disagree i guess… hehe..), LOVE has no definition….(really?)…there are only descriptions of love, but not definition…to define love is to delimit its meaning….to diminish its essence….you betray its purpose….its much that you can only equate LOVE with GOD…. so much to say that LOVE IS….THAT IT EXISTS….just that way….you do not define it….

 …..AMOR CON AMOR SEPAGA… begets love

    Thanks for sharing the meaning of this phrase. Indeed love is so mysterious and has no definite meaning or exact meaning.

    Thank you and keep on posting beautiful thoughts!

    Have a nice day!

    I was doing my Spanish homework and couldn’t find the meaning of that phrase…Found it here. A little unconventional, but at least I’ve got it now. Muchas gracias. 🙂

    Love is selfish. Love is when you see yourself in someone or something else. You surrender your entire being regardless of whether the recipient even wants it. It’s the greatest risk. But yes, sometimes the risk pays off. Se paga. 🙂
