Like a friend of mine often says... "I'm just being honest."

Hi,
Saying that love sometimes hurts, is like saying Life is sometimes tough.

Life is not tough.
Life is Life --- pure and pristine.

Love does not hurt.
Love is pure and sublime.


What is it that is tough?

What is it that hurts?

Therein lies Wisdom - deep and withstanding wisdom and insight.

Separate these things and and it is like separating salt from water ---
invaluable.




(Where do I come up with these things....?)

What does it mean to Love? well, I would suppose it doesn't mean anything.

Maybe Love simply comes after meanings fall away.

So when I'm happy and joyful and just doing it then whatever's in front of me is that... that is.

*shrug* Sounded closer to just 'Be-ing' to me. Love is the source of the Be-ing IMO, and the stage upon which it all plays.

Oh, YOU shrug! Who the H cares anymore? I'm very tired of the dueling love-experts around here~causing more trouble than it's worth. Far from my idea of demonstrating love or it's nearest cousin.

That you don't hear or understand a lot of people who don't agree with you.
