Don’t Confuse “Love” With “Love!”

Positive- Ghandi

When the young child asks the question about where babies come from, and the first response, other than the stork story is, “when two people love each other . . . blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!” The child eventually grows up to learn the real story, “when two people have sex . . . blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!” Now as an adult, he or she knows where babies come from . . .  but what about love?

Love refers to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection (“I love that person”) to pleasure (“I loved that meal”). It can refer to an emotion or attraction (“I love my job or career”). It can also be a virtue representing human kindness and compassion (“I love children, animals, the poor”). (Wikipedia)

Love is a power that you can choose to share or not. Love is so powerful that you can choose who or what to love, whether it is good for you or not. Have you ever seen a man who did not love his own actions? Even though they be bad actions, he loves them. This man is a man with the spiritual side of his nature still undeveloped. If he is selfish, the evil is not in his love of self—all love, even self-love, is good. The evil is that he has such a poor, inadequate, misguided love of self and such a lack of love for others and for God. He looks upon himself as only a superior sort of animal, and foolishly pampers his physical wants and needs. 

Know thou that in every age and dispensation all divine ordinances are changed and transformed according to the requirement of the time, except the law of love, which, like a fountain, always flows and is never overtaken by change. ~Bahá’u’lláh

Are You A Blocker? Do You Know One?

Are you blocking your own blessings by doubt, fear, anger, ego, jealousy? Do you need to be the center of attention, are you full of drama, do you truly listen to others when they talk, or are you one of those who don’t appreciate what you already have?

If not . . . great , but I know you know someone who is. This is the person that keeps you or someone you know from the “task-at-hand”. Human nature has not changed since the beginning of humanity. Eve did not realize that the snake was a . . .”snake.” She could not comprehend that she would one day give birth, raise two sons to love each other, and that one would kill his brother. 

Just as sure as there are sunsets and full moons, there will always be someone who will gladly take what you have or love. It does not matter if it is money, loved ones, worldly possessions, identity, virginity, integrity, or beliefs. It is their human nature to destroy you by all means possible.  Unfortunately, it is a slow process over a period of time. The most unfortunate part is that you know the person  . . . personally, intimately, or by blood.

It is okay to be stupid and not see someone for who they truly are … that is human nature. It is NOT okay to be “stuck on stupid.” That’s when everyone else see all the red flags but you. But instead of sticking around for the five-minute “don’t do it” speech, you make your decision. No matter the decision right or wrong, you learn from that life lesson or experience and hopefully (hopefully) you move on.

This is the time to re-evaluate the people you give too much credit to that don’t deserve it! You must also appreciate those you don’t give enough credit too . . . including yourself! And remember, don’t let anyone (anyone) block your blessings . . . including yourself!
