There is no any human being on earth unless he/she has a heart that throbs and two eyes that see. The human heart doesn’t become devoid of the yearning to love someone (and to be loved back). Nor does the human heart become devoid of an atom of sympathy and mercy. However, it’s indeed the usage of such yearnings that matters. They could be directed towards corrupting the society or reforming it . There is no doubt that every young man or woman might have had a romantic relationship with the opposite sex – that might have resulted in marriage.
These relationships as we all know could have been real or imagined. There is no need to compile a dictionary of relationships between men and women, their successes and failures. What is intended here is a brief survey of the different stage of these relationships, the extent to which they can proceed, and how they can lead to a successful marriage. To this writer, every romantic relationship is considered to be deficient if it’s not crowned with marriage. In other words, every romantic love is considered to be fake unless authenticated by marriage.
Scaling The Difficult Mountain Of Love
At the top of the mountain of love, one finds marriage. So to speak, when Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing became the world’s first climbers to conquer Mountain Everest (the world’s highest peak), they became instant heroes. In a like manner, Lovers who have been able to conquer the difficult mountain of love, to this writer are also heroes in their own right. The love mountain could be a difficult one to climb. It could also be a very low one too – depending on the partners involved.
Other partners scaling this mountain could decide they don’t want to go all the way to the peak – where marriage is found. They could decide just to hang around the mountain edges having sex – thus delaying their ascent to the top for another day! This “day” could or never come. The most important thing to remember during a time when one is climbing this mountain is that it can be scaled at any “season” of one’s lifetime. It could be scaled in “Spring”, “Summer”, “Fall” or “Winter”
Explaining The Different Seasons Of One’s Lifetime
One may enter into any relationship that leads into marriage during any season of one’s life. Scaling this mountain during the ‘Spring’ season of one’s life could be a better choice for others. They should bear in mind that Spring is a colorful season, and the surroundings of the love mountain is colorful. To this writer, the ‘Spring’ of one’s life is between the ages of 18 and 33.
Yet still, others may decide that it would be better to start scaling the love mountain during the ‘Summer’ of their lives – bearing in mind that Summer is a green season and the sky is blue in Summer.
It’s hot in Summer too. Again, this writer identifies the ‘Summer’ of a person’s life to be between the ages of 34 and 49. Some people may be better prepared to scale this mountain at this time of their lives. Since they may still have all what it takes to get to the top. Then, that of ‘Fall’ will be between the ages of 50 and 65. As we all know, Fall is a yellow season, and all leaves are yellow during this time of the year.
Lovers planning to scale this mountain during this period of their lives might have already gone through their mid-life crisis. Their energy may have already begun to sag badly. Yet still, there could be other folks thinking of scaling the mountain during the ‘Winter’ of their lives. They should be above age 65 at this time. We should all bear in mind that Winter is a white season; it’s freezing in Winter, and those planning to scale this mountain during this period might not possess enough energy to do so without some doses of Viagra (if they are men).
It doesn’t matter in which season of your life you happen to find love. Just bear in mind the type of season you are in, and make adequate provisions for your journey!
What Is The Best Season To Scale The Mountain Of Love?
There isn’t a clear cut answer to this question. What I know is that, relationships and marriage could happen at any time. However, the age of full strength falls between the ages of 18 and 30 or 32. Between the ages of 30 and 40, humans are said to be in their best adulthood. After 40, they begin to look after their growing children; perhaps their spiritual faculties also gain the upper hand after 40. When mid-life crisis begin to set in, they could be conveniently said to be creeping toward the ‘Fall’ of their lives. The cold season sets in with it’s freezing temperatures; a person at this age could be said to have passed age 65. However, in some parts of the world, especially in sub-Sahara Africa, where life expectancy at birth is below 55 years, how many men (and women) live long enough to scale the mountain of love during the winter of their lives? No matter what time in life one decides to go hiking on the love mountain, some preparations – psychologically, spiritually, physically and may be financially are necessary. This is so because, the hiking could be long, arduous and tortuous.
Some Relevant Advice Before Climbing This Mountain Love
In order that the climbing or hiking of the love mountain occur in a conducive ambiance, it’s imperative that prospective ‘hikers’ first of all meet with each other, and get to know each other better. So that, it does not happen that, after hiking halfway to the top, one partner begins to snap at the other’s ankles. At a time both partners are meeting each other, their body chemistry eventually causes them to fall in love with each other.
The man would see through the eyes of his future wife, that radiation of ethereal beauty, and the woman will also see through the eyes of her future husband – those sweet smiles of his that are genuine, rather than cloying. In some cultures, it is recommended that the first meeting between the ‘prospective hikers’ must not occur in a secluded place, or without a chaperon or a relative.
Finally, the best guide in climbing the love mountain should be God-consciousness and trust in Him. Because, with God-consciousness, ‘hikers’ would know the secure path to take to avoid unwanted outcomes. With their trust in God, they would be able to endure the hardships associated with scaling this treacherous mountain. They would continue to pray that God deliver them safely. They would definitely encounter all different ‘hikers’ on the way to the top.
And anytime time they stumble, and fall down; they would quickly get up; gather more momentum and keep up the fight; it would only be the potency of faith that would lead them to the summit – where the will find marriage.
