Give us some love!

Focus and remember all the things you love about humanity and the world at large. Take time and maybe write them down. The more you do this the more you attract them into your life. The more focus the more alignment occurs. Synchronicity happens. Write down all the best qualities of people, friends, lovers, animals, places, etc. Give them reality. Existence.

Some say, also, that when you think of something part of you connects to that target. Like when you think of a long lost friend and they enter back into your life. We all have lines reaching out to everything in the world, connecting us to reality. Upholding it. Sustaining it's very existence.

Reach out and give some love to the world.

We cannot Love that which we ultimately do not Understand.
Thus blind faith that is based on fear will subside with fear.
If you do not begin to extend Unconditional Understanding to your fellow-men now you will not cultivate the ability to Love Unconditionally. If you are not willing to Understand you will not be willing to Love.
Understanding is the key to Love.
Unless you Understand or Innerstand that the feeling in your Heart is indeed Love you will not be able to Know Love.
Accept what you do not know that it may help you to know it; resent it and it shall remain an irritating puzzle.

Are you sure about that? Most people don't understand most things. They may partially understand, given that understanding=knowledge+experience so at least they can partially love. There are multiples of shades of love multiplied by the number of people on the world.
I love music (in a very deep sense) but I don't understand it other than technically. I love a piece of cake - but how do you understand a piece of cake?

You see, how can you expect me to buy that? How do you unconditionally understand people when mostly they don't understand themselves? Are you able to penetrate their blindspots? I agree you can extend unconditional love to those of whom you have no expectations but....unconditionally understand them? Their motives? Their drives?

Suggests you're hoping to produce a definitive, comprehensive definition of "what love is." I fear that won't work but it will open a most interesting discussion!

Otherwise it may be best to avoid love. What does it offer, after all?

hahaha...I wonder if the sublime wry humour here is appreciated by all?



Perhaps what the lad means is more a simple acceptance of what is, warts and all (?) No idea, just guessing

Peace & blessings

All you are doing here is restricting the heart. I try to open the heart without creating needless obstacles. In your view you need to understand someone completely before loving them! How about loving the mystery that is human nature? The mystery that is love. I love a good mystery! How about loving the journey when getting to know someone, and enjoying every lil bit of love found along the way!

How very true!

Love the process not just the product. Or, as well as the product.

youngnostic,

I liked this. IMO your observations are being unfairly dismissed. Personally I see a synonymous correlation between 'understanding' and 'open-mindedness'. Thus one could assert that being open-minded is a(the) key to love. Being open-minded presumes the absence of blinders. The most typical 'blinders' are pre-conceived notions, prejudices, and the ego among others. Every one of these aforementioned serve as impediments to love. Do not let others discourage you from sharing your thoughts.
