I am open and receptive to the transforming power of Love. ~~
“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.
Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.
Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.” ~ Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are ~
It is not necessary for us to like all that we see in our world. We do not have to agree with the wrong things that people do. But regardless of appearances, we must love the Christ God in all persons and all things. We must, because it is our nature to love and because “he first loved us.”
