Love. 💕When I was asked to answer the question “what is love?”💕
It struck me as a very profound and deep question to answer— I wasn’t actually sure I could answer it. I’m not sure that there’s one answer to this question either…
I indeed thought about this one a lot —- I’ve actually, subconsciously thought about what it is my whole life.
I’ve had a few long term relationships, I’ve come close to marriage + have lived with a boyfriend in LA and another in NY (no, not at the same time, dear) … but that’s not really what love is… this podcast isn’t all about romance.
It is quite possible that the definition of love is different for many people but there are some fundamentals that we can all practice to better cultivate to feel love and … to be the love we wish to find one day.
I’m a tough NYC girl, but I’m really not that tough bc I was raised in Ca. And mom and dad are both the kindest spirits. My sister too— each of us has a big and empathetic heart. We always want to love and live for one another. And no, we and especially I am not perfect…
But from LA to NY, Tokyo to Barcelona, Fiji to Oz, London to Paris, Mexico to Ghana.. Canada to Greece, Hong Kong to China: these are the things I have experienced that are universally practiced as, love:
Here’s what we will learn from today’s episode:
- Love is empathy.
- Love is compassion.
- Love is giving your attention to another.
- Love is being present.
- Love is gratitude.
- Love is prayer.
- Love is service.
- Love is peace.
Let us practice more, there are enough shitheads out there.
And, lastly, please, don’t stress about finding a partner… don’t worry, love is patient + kind… anything worth keeping is not easy to find.
What is meant for you, shall not pass you.
What is meant to be will be. Live and let live. Let us love more.
Consequently the time code on this pod is 50:50
And that’s what love is, meet you down the aisle xx see you partner xx with my love, ck
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
