We love, but . . .
We often find ourselves as loving + receiving love with strings attached. We pull love apart, squeeze it into a ball, + mould it into questioning shapes. We assess, assume, and attempt to change those we love.
Thank you, Elena Brower + Erich Schiffmann, for raising a redefinition of love as “a willingness to recognise what is real”—not within our subjective microcosm but in the objective realm, viewed through the lens of an empathetic + clear heart. Let’s love without assumptions + love simply through observing . . .
And to deepen your process, a quote by Amma:
“Am I really in love, or am I too attached? Contemplate on this question as deeply as you can. Most people are craving for attachment, not real love. In a way, we are betraying ourselves. We mistake attachment for love. Love is the centre and attachment is the periphery. Aim for the center” —Amma
