Love Quotes: Love Changes Everything

“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Q: Why does Teilhard de Chardin compare harnessing love to discovering fire? A: Because fire changed everything, and so will love, if we ever learn to understand it, teach it, and thus drastically…

Love Quotes: Love Attracts Love

“Life is kinder to those who love themselves, because love attracts love and light, and repels and dispels darkness.” – Shaun Roundy Have you ever watched someone walking down the street, smiling and happy, a bounce in their step, and thought, “I bet they’re in love”? Have you ever observed the way a person’s countenance changes as they fall in love? Suddenly they become happier, their eyes shinier, and the weight on their shoulders seems…

Addicted to Love

It seems like everybody’s addicted to their smart phones these days, and we feel as if we’d suffocate if we can’t sneak a quick glance to check our messages and new likes. Some of us are addicted to food, shopping, gambling, video games, drugs, porn, and other substances/activities that momentarily soothe our nerves. This happens because of neurotransmitter rewards. In other words, each time we get a new like or take another hit of our…

You Are Needed

I once heard a story wherein a fairy had become entangled in a hedge. A kind girl set her free and the fairy granted her a wish. “I want to always be happy,” the girl declared, at which the fairy flitted up to her shoulder and whispered something in her ear. The girl looked surprised, and the fairy flew away, never to be seen again. Well, the girl lived a long, satisfying life, and her…

Love Languages

Explanations about how love works are all fine and good, but ideas don’t make much difference until you put them into action. That’s what love languages are all about. Love languages is an idea popularized by Gary Chapman’s books that identify five specific ways that people show love, based on what they value. Some people give gifts, others say nice things, share quality time, do acts of service, or communicate affection through physical touch. When…

Love Barrier Types

If you don’t love more (and, by definition, you don’t), it’s probably due to one (or two) of two things: ignorance or fear. Ignorance You just don’t know better. If you did, you’d probably rise to that level. That’s why people claim that “everyone is doing the best they know how.” On one hand, this barrier can be solved by simply providing information. That’s why we provide so many insightful explanations on this site, and…

Second-Hand Love

To learn to love more, knowledge and explanations are not enough. You must experience love for yourself. That’s why most articles on this site include For Discussion and Homework assignments. I can point the way, and you must walk the path. If you don’t have (or don’t think you have) people to practice love on, you can start by observing other loving people and learn from that. Eventually, you’ll realize that you’re surrounded by people…

Learned Limits

On one hand, love is an absolute. It is what it is, and it’s powerful, abundant, and infinite. On the other hand, our experience of love is limited to our understanding of it – both conscious and subconscious. Consciously, we observe how others love and assume that where they stop – where love capitulates to selfishness and fear – is the correct amount of love. Anything more or less would violate societal norms and call…

Acceptance

The second thing love does, after seeing a person clearly, is to accept them unconditionally. That doesn’t make love blind to flaws, it doesn’t mean it has to put up with abuse or continue loving and caring for the person forever, nor that it won’t judge through love’s supportive filter or ask for change. Those decisions are separate and they come later. It simply means that love sees what “is” and grows from there because…

Courage

Have you ever wondered why love inspires such courage and “casteth out all fear”? Well, I’ll tell you! There are actually several good reasons. The first one is Focus. It’s like a surfer out to catch the perfect wave. Yes, there are sharks with three rows of razor-sharp teeth swimming around below the water’s surface, but the surfer isn’t thinking about them. Not very much, at least. Not enough to keep them on shore. Because…
