Life Code


This keeps banging around in my head, so I'll put it out there. Love involves one's whole being. The core of love, however, is accurately seeing the loved one and being oriented to the wellbeing of the loved one. That loved one may be self or other. Spouse, sibling, child, or person you meet on the street. How the love is expressed in the world depends on the nature of the relationship and the agreements you have with your loved one.

Sitting with a loved one and having a difficult conversation is an act of love. The willingness to be uncomfortable in the service of holding space for your loved one is a loving thing, as is the intention to seek understanding and repair ruptures. Working through that process creates the opportunity to build a new level of trust.
