So what if, part of our learning to love ourselves is connected to other things… Like learning to love others, as ourselves and it is leading us to remember…Who we were as spiritual beings with the ability to LOVE EVERYONE…
The trick is to remove everything that is not love from within us so that we can reveal the love that we are.
We are all worthy of being loved. We have to discover for ourselves what love really is, but we won’t find the truth of love in the mainstream narrative.
Here’s the thing — this emptiness, this nothingness. There is actually a wholeness to it, a purity of life. Some call it unconditional love.
What’s the point of love? I’m not asking this to set you up as the troubled lead in a rom-com who, after a series of montages, will eventually learn to open his heart and love again. I’m seriously asking: Why do we love?
Where there is unlimited giving & receiving of love in a relationship, both of you know your best friend is always there to help you through times of stress & to share your moments of triumph.
The ability to both give and receive love is the most important aspect of a relationship. This is the kind of love that can withstand the worst problems life can throw @ you. It will often mean giving way on a point of argument, or sacrificing a path or something you want, and it always…
We are the dupes of myth when we upbraid ourselves because we love, for we are made for loving: all the sweets of living are for those that love. Be joyful, unafraid!
So until we figure out all the ins and outs of amore, take comfort in knowing that love is real and generally beneficial to us. And no matter who you are, at some point, we’ll all feel that tingling glow and say, “Ah, I’m so in a commitment device.”
Love is still a bit of a mystery, but we keep getting closer to figuring out its oddball intricacies. Sure, it’s based on an evolutionary need to pair up and spread our genes, and our hormones are responsible for lots of the craziness, but that doesn’t explain all the volatility and heartbreak that goes along…
