The Truth About Love

Love is not all you need.
Sorry to burst some bubbles (and criticize a great song), but love is one of the things we need, not the only thing.

Think of love as a heart. It’s not all the body needs, but we’re not going very far without one.

Love is a force. It unites.
It’s a force. Like gravity.
Gravity pulls down. Love pulls together.

Getting together, uniting, is one of the most exquisite experiences. We extend our existence, whether parent-child, friends or lovers. We become richer, stronger, greater.

Love unites.
Then it’s our turn.

Does love hurt? Does it causes suffering? No. Love unites.
If the unity doesn’t fit or if it breaks apart, that can be painful. Don’t blame love.
It’s like blaming gravity when we fall.

Love unites. The rest is up to us.

      Be aware Lisa that I am the suspicious type. I’m particularly suspicious of people who love me but don’t like me.

    Love unites, the rest is up to us? What is that rest?

      Compassion, consideration, tolerance, kindness, helpfulness, tenderness, humor, the capacity to listen, playfulness and a dozen or so other things depending on the character of the unity.
