Love is an infinitely renewable resource. Giving love produces love. Receiving love produces love.
Love, as opposed to lust, is also a feeling of connection. It's gratitude for the existence of someone or something. And it's the source of a selfless wish that all will be well.
Only when we lose the love of ourselves can we begin to hate each other. Love is lost to ignorance of our inherent perfection and unity in life.
Try hard to nurture love whenever it can be found like an ember you can delicately coax into a flame that will grow into a warming glow for everyone to gather around.
Strive to periodically return to the peaceful stillness underneath your thoughts and actions where love waits to refresh your spirit.
Be curious about yourself, the world and the people you share it with and you'll invariably discover something that pulls on your heart strings.
Try to lose your sense of individual self by doing something altruistic, however big or small, and you'll find the great connection among us all.
However it speaks to you, act upon "A five-word sentence that could change the world tomorrow [which] is 'What would love do now?'" – Neale Donald Walsch
Read the classic, The Art of Loving, by Psychologist Erich Fromme for an insightful description of the history and variety of the greatest human emotion and how to cultivate it to enrich your life and the world.
