To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. To just give. That takes courage, because we don’t want to fall on our faces or leave ourselves open to hurt.
We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.
To love is a productive activity. It implies caring for, knowing, responding, affirming, enjoying: the person, the tree, the painting, the idea. It means bringing to life, increasing his/her/its aliveness. It is a process, self-renewing and self increasing.
Quote with 2 notes
Love is the affinity which links and draws together the elements of the world… Love, in fact, is the agent of universal synthesis.
"Somebody told me look over at sea / hold you in wonder and longing to be / Somebody you just can’t believe would care for you / *My see-through-blue"
*My sea-foam-greeeeen ❤️
