What is alofa?


 


Dear family,


Recently my sisters and I have sat down over a cup of tea and reflect on our lives.  We recalled the love of our parents, the Lord and then our partners.  How do we know we really love someone or something. 


There are many kind of love that we have heard of these days.  A parents love, sister or brotherly love, loving your dog/pet, loving your neighbour, loving your enemies and God's love for us. 


What is love?  Is it a feeling or were we born with it? Why do we use love in every sentence when we describe something that is precious or important to us.  If we say that we love watching rugby and eating McDonalds but we also tell our loved ones that we love them is it still the same?  Do we love them the same way we love eating burgers and fries?


So what do you think?

Yeah whats love? Good question!


 


In the relationsphere love can be identified when your relation is over because of the fact that 2 people live too far from eachother and thats why these peolpe cant see eachother that often, but still loving eachother. After this kinda break you will be faced with the fact that your life is empty with the one you used to love. It gives a feeling that says; You really liked here but its not the one.Its maybe for the better if everything goes the way it goes. If we talk about the one(the perfect guy/girl) then you will see eachother so likely that you will do everything to be in her/his presence.


 


And abou the mcdonalds thing I like it too but I`m not lovin it! LOL!!

To me the meaning of LOVE is all the same in all relationships (Parents


If you think about love it also has a lot of pain and sacrifices as well as Joy.The pain has been  overdramartic with this good affection as in misinterpreted in some other's  defintition of love being passion, desire and pleasure.


I can't extend with word how I feel what Love is but 'm sure you know where I'm coming from.

TALOFA LAVA SAMOA........FIRST OF ALL.MY NAME IS ALOFA....OF COURSE ALOFA MEANS LOVE. BUT THE REASON WHY MY DEAR PARENTZ NAME ME AFTER DIS POWERFUL NAME IS BECAUSE DA LOVE OF GOD WHO SEND THEM A BEAUTIFUL KIRL LIKE ME FOR THEM TO RAISED AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF ME, CAUSE I WAS THE FIRST BABY OF THE FAMILY, AND THEY ALSO THANXZ GOD FOR HAVING ME AS THEIR DAUGHTER. MY PARENTZ NAME ME AFTER ALOFA, SO WHEN I GREW-UP I SHOULD KNOW  HOW TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER, OR EVERYBODY ESPECIALLY MY HEAVENLY FATHER... BUT IF YOU SEE DIS MESSAGE, PEOPLE DON'T HATE ME CAUSE I'M PRETTY, BUT I LOVE YOU ALL MY SAMOAN PEOPLE..TAKE CARE CAUSE I CARE ABOUT MY SAMOAN PEOPLE..PEACETO YOU ALL..GOD BLESS...

Kalofa e ia JJ. ia faafetai mo le fesili....When U think of the WORD "ALOFA", there're no questions asked, alofa says it all...If you know you dont know what love is, then you dont have it in U at all. LIke the old saying, "you are no one till someone loves you....":

Briefly, there are three important Greek terms to remember: 1) Philein means simply brotherly love, family love. You love who you know and recognize. 2) Eros refers to sex-love, erotic films, etc... just sex. 3) Agape meaning unconditional love. You love someone or something because it's in you. Unfortunately, we have quite a limited vocabulary, 'cause ALOFA is the only term for all those three.
