Love is like the world around us. It is genuine and wonderful at times, while at others, it is damaging and painful.

The cosmos defines itself with a set pattern and explanation; just like the night sky, love has its own characteristic and style. For instance, the universe holds within it a plethora of celestial bodies. Just like the cosmos, love branches off into many distinct feelings. The galaxy doesn't consist of planets alone; it contains asteroids, stars, and black holes. Similarly, love doesn't consist of just an intimate affection towards one's parents, but also involves feeling a deep passion for a friend or even an object. Also, the formation itself of love and the galaxies are alike. Little by little, the cosmos is formed by the little pockets of gas which grow until they form clouds. In the same manner, love evolves from minute infatuations and occurrences. Both are revealed little by little over time until you start looking at the entire picture.

In addition, in the galaxy, the constellation's positions and appearance change as time goes by, and just like the cosmos, love changes as well. For example, while old stars die, new stars are created. This is like losing the "old feelings" a person used to have. Yet at the same time, new affection develops. Furthermore, changes in the galaxy are very subtle; in the identical fashion, love matures in a delicate, but in a very precise way. It takes a very long time for the universe to change the way it looks from Earth's point of view; as a result, in our lifetime, we can detect very little alteration in the galaxy. With love, it also takes a while for a man to realize this feeling, because, at a conscious level, he may not be paying close attention to all of his emotions.

Also, love is like the appearance of the cosmos at night: it is beautiful, and it can be thrilling. For instance, when a man looks up in the harmonious sky at night, he sees the heavenly and peaceful stars, which radiate throughout the night. He may also feel a sense of serenity when he encounters love. Peace of mind can satisfy him. Additionally, love can be advantageous. When a meteor hits Earth, scientists and astronomers learn more from this occurrence. Similarly, when a man encounters hardship in a relationship, he learns from it.

Moreover, asteroids are sometimes carefully thought about as a cataclysm; love can be contemplated as a natural disaster as well. For example, when an asteroid collides with a surface, destruction will result. Likewise, some men think that love will end up as a disaster. Great misunderstandings could be the explanation of its damage. Even though love isn't easy, nobody should contemplate it as a misery.

Love and the universe are both a very effective display. Love can lead to many things in the world, but we should bear in mind how we can apply it for a good cause. Any way you look at it, love will always maintain it's familiar warm presence in all our lives.
