Last year I met someone and he introduced me to the word "Ahava." As I did my research, I found that it is a lovely word with such deep meaning.
Ahava is a Hebrew word meaning "I give." and "Love." Therefore, Love is giving. The more we give love and the more we receive love the stronger the connection grows between two people. Makes sense, right? But what's important here is not receiving love, but giving--that is the secret. Giving is the vehicle of sustaining love. Not just giving our lover love, but ourself the love we deserve.
