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 love others as much 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.

  4. Beautifully written, Vrunda. You have clearly cited the main causes of mistrust, hate, fights, backbiting… this negative list is endless…that arises due to not adhering to even one of the positive attributes…allow,honour, trust, respect, kindness, affection, motivate, nurture, grow, cultivate…that you have mentioned.

    Love is such a simple thing…Just accept anyone for what they are just get on…do unto others as to what you do to yourself principle…

    Thank you again for yet another though-provoking (i mean provoking in the right sense :)) post
