Why does LOVE BLURS your VISION?  Is it  just like with the famous quotes we usually hear that "LOVE IS BLIND"?

Try to love somebody that you never met.  Try to fall with someone whose face you haven't seen.  Try kissing for someone whose lips you've never touched. Or hold his/her hands whose fingers you could imagine as yours.  Try making love with someone whom reflections you've seen is so blur, you climb for such imagination that he/she is there beside you.  STUPIDITY isn't it?

Then if you broke up with that someone you've never seen at all...the wound still too deep to imagine. You get the hard time to recover from it.  

How do you move on and get up from the fall?  Well I am there now...I am madly, deeply in love with this guy I haven't seen for a long time.  Sounds crazy? Yes, it is.  I honestly dumb and stupid and I finally realize that I am amazingly having an affair with someone, with no conditions, with no repercussions, with no appearance to indulge with the PAIN I am suffering now. Is this a literal proof that LOVE IS TOTALLY BLIND?  Or am I just LOSING MY VISION here?

Is this the kind of thing you see if you sit in the darkness with open eyes and never thinking what the future brings?  Am I dreaming?  Please wake me up before I drowned in my own dilemma. ~sigh~

This quote was written by Saint Augustine of Hippo

Photo credit: Goodreads

He was the bishop of Hippo Regius (today this place is called Annaba, Algeria).  He was a Latin philosopher and theologian from the Africa Province of the Roman Empire and is generally considered as one of the greatest Christian thinkers of all times. His writings were very influential in the development of Western Christianity.

According to his contemporary Jerome, Augustine "established anew the ancient Faith." In his early years he was heavily influenced by Manichaeism and afterward by the Neo-Platonism of Plotinus. After his conversion to Christianity and his baptism in 387, Augustine developed his own approach to philosophy and theology, accommodating a variety of methods and different perspectives. He believed that the grace of Christ was indispensable to human freedom, and he framed the concepts of original sin and just war.

When the Western Roman Empire was starting to disintegrate, Augustine developed the concept of the Catholic Church as a spiritual City of God (in a book of the same name), distinct from the material Earthly City. His thoughts profoundly influenced the medieval worldview. Augustine's City of God was closely identified with the Church, the community that worshiped the Trinity.

In the Catholic Church, he is a saint and pre-eminent Doctor of the Church, and the patron of the Augustinians; his memorial is celebrated 28 August, the day of his death. He is the patron saint of brewers, printers, theologians, the alleviation of sore eyes, and a number of cities and dioceses.
