    Love would insist on the highest welfare of the beloved, no matter the cost to the lover.

    Love attracts, fear repels. We exist in a paradigm of duality.

    Deeply accept people who they are. Get past the barricades. Drop the masks (metaphorically speaking only!).

    Love would expand and multiply. It melts the icy heart and mends the broken heart. It unites individuals to each other and to our world. Love is the opposite of isolation in all ways.

    In this human form, a state of being that depends on nothing, yet at the same time is available to and engaged with everything.

    Love brings happiness and joy. Love is trust. Love is security. It should be more like what *does* love do, rather than what *would* love do….because that implies that love isn’t already present in our lives.

    But then I can also say Showing love would bring a smile to someone else’s face….it would brighten their day…it could turn around their mood and outlook on the day or on life…

    Such a poignant question today, and one I wish every politician would ask before opening their mouths, casting a vote, tweeting or posting. But it is enough that I would ask it of myself, before I do any of the above.

    Everyone feels sad sometimes, just like everyone can feel joyful, angry, proud and plenty of other emotions. Those feeling are always changing.

    When I face these bad situations, I may have unhelpful or negative thoughts about sadness. And those thoughts can make me feel worse.

    So, I ask myselft: What would love do?

    What Would Love Do?

    Explode into a powder to land
    on everyone, everything, delicate,
    faintly warm and scented, like something
    for a baby, and after that, no voices
    raised, no sudden movements
    but sunlight breaking through every
    possible crack or rift,
    expanding to light up the world
    with soft glints from the powder
    that shoot crackling messages across
    the waters, between mountaintops, into hearts
    and minds and souls, bringing breath
    and life to kinder notions.

    An often asked question that requires action from me. All the way from simply shutting my mouth to dedicating incredible energies for 10 years to help change laws to free thousands of prisoners. Of late, love also tells me to make sure I am better cared for within the sacrificing for love.

    We can be deceived, so easily it seems, by this dynamic of love as an action word. It is of course true. And yet, many times I have come to appropriate that which I discover I love. Acquisition is not necessarily protection. To take something or someone as one’s own is not always nurturing. Maybe I am not fully developed in this arena, for sure, yet it seems the truest and purest love I have experienced (both receiving and giving) has the room freedom gives. So love liberates. Love teaches. Love alleviates and softens even the most bitter experiences (like grieving). It also demands from me a certain clarity. It is sometimes work. To really see through the fog of struggling with my own conflicting interests and selfishness to find the right path. For my own self interest is often in opposition to the welfare of that which I profess to love. Love can compel sacrifice. And, for sure, it can be like a picnic on a beach in summer. Perfect in its simplicity and with an ease and comfort which overwhelms all pain and stress, worry. That is love we bask in. And I cherish those times as much as anyone. And I know it is not simply this. It is not always easy.
