Loving Well

Love and relationship give real meaning to our lives. We find our fulfillment in giving and receiving love. As we have talked about before, it takes time to understand how to love our partners well. It can sometimes be equally difficult to receive love from others, to actually believe that we are worthy of love. There have been many messages from childhood from those we have loved as well as cultural messages both to men and to women that make it difficult to accept love and to let it nourish us. These same messages make it challenging to genuinely love and respect ourselves. Loving ourselves is a prerequisite for loving others well. For the next week, look at love as presenting us with a never ending prospect for self transformation and as the core spiritual issue of our humanity. Enjoy the view and ask yourself what change you are being nudged to make today.
