"Giv her love but eliminate valentine with fire. " Black Heart
I agree. The best way to show you that you love her is to show her the Itinuity of your love; you do not just love her on one day on Valentines day, you love her everyday.
This is one of the biggest problems besides materialism for all the western festivals for me; ie christmas.
From an early age, I had huge influxes of material presents on December 25th, yet there was always a deep sadness of that day. Its sad, because people would say, "look how much you have (meaning presents), why are you still sad". My sadness was not ungreatfullness, but rather sadness for humanity in that they think that huge influxes of material gifts are how to love someone.
The best kind of love can be found everyday; the idea that it would be once a year is not right, and the problem I have with it is the material nature of showing love.
This is why I do not bow to the western idea of Christmas; because my love for my parents/people should be the SAME everyday, and I certainly wish to show it in a much more genuine way than material gifts.
The greatest gift that you can give someone is knowledge; of themselves. Let them know how Babylon controls them. Consciousness will bring them the greatest hapiness in the long run, and is therefore the greatest gift.
I only suggested the flowers because it was the most natural of all the material gifts that I could think of, but personally I would not bow to Valentines
All the best,
