What is Love?
At first there seems to be so many types of love. A mother’s love, the love of exploration, a love of devotion. I could list a thousand different types of love. As we love we seem to push, to test and then try to go further. In the drive to be more, in the name of love -> it seems we do so many crazy things. Love seems to be so many things and yet it represents a simple truth.
The reason so much energy gets pushed into love is:
Love is to become more or to help another become more..
The expression/style of more, is what determines the type of love you have.
Traps of Love
The trap of love is to put a person in our hearts. We change and other people do change over time. To place a person in your heart is to break your heart later upon changing. Instead, learn how to put the connection to a person within your heart rather than the person themselves. In that manner as you change, as they change.. you can stay connected and still help each other grow.
When working to maintain love remember to strengthen your connections with flexibility rather than smothering it with sameness. Deepen your connection with open communication and avoid restrictions and ultimatums .
Look to love being growth rather than something that never changes.
