Sometimes, love hurts. We might even question if exposing ourselves to love is worth the potential pain.
But love is not just a surface emotion: it embodies a wide spectrum of feelings. So wide, that poets, writers, artists, saviours, politicians, advertisers and countless others have tried to define and describe it through the ages. Various holy writings declare that God is Love.
I do not think it is possible to live on this earth and miss the experience of love. Simply being born is a gift of infinite love: we are given access to all the possibilities (including challenges) that life has to offer. The more we open ourselves, the deeper our experience can go.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~ Rumi
