Yes, love is what matters. And I’m not just talking about romantic love. Love, just love. Love for yourself, love for your pet, your pet’s love for you, love for the planet, love for all those people out there who are suffering and struggling for whatever reason.
Watch this video all the way through and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
Whatever you think is important, money, success, that new car, that new whatever…none of it matters. Not really, because those things aren’t what makes you happy.
I know, you’ve heard that a bazillion times before. But trust me, I’ve been rich, and I’ve been on the edge of wondering if I was going to be able to pay the rent.
The big lesson I’ve learned from living in the ‘ups’ and the ‘downs,’ is that the less I have, the happier I am, and the happier I am, the less I want.
The ‘good’ life is about the quality of your relationships. No, no, no…not how many friends you have. I’m talking about an authentic, deep, heart-to-heart connection.
How many of those do you enjoy? How many people have seen deep into your soul? And what’s my point? Well, my point is THAT is where love takes root.
Nope, it’s not the flutters in your belly or nether regions. No, it’s not that you think about them night and day, to the point that you can barely get anything done.
Love begins its journey of blossoming in those moments when you share your true self with someone.
And I’m not talking about that ‘amazing’ conversation you had with that new person when you discovered you like the same movies, the same books, and the same music.
When you think love is the flutters, the sexual need, the thinking about, the shared interests, it’s not. Not until you share your heart and soul with someone, and they share theirs. And in that sharing, you really see each other, maybe for the first time after knowing each other for years.
That is what love is.
