“Issues of love bear on our opening to the basic nature of reality as compassion, and beginning to see that we are fundamentally not separate from others or from the basic ground. This makes our ability to love and our nourishment from love more unconditional. Love is not merely an emotion. It is a meltdown that reestablishes a more unified space of brilliance, goodness, and sadness. This is the real of function of love in spiritual tradition.”
In the coming year, I resolve to love.
to nurture that love which already exists and to give it space to grow
to discover new ways of loving more deeply
to acknowledge where I fall short on love and to try to determine why
All towards the ideal of loving first and doing all other things next.
Wishing you peace and love in the coming year.
