On occasion, with emptied out fore thought and/or hindsight…I have the ability to fully appreciate the following:
“Goddess, I know that I am seriously flawed! But today…remind me, love is possible”
Not many people can truthfully assert that they love everybody. Most of us must admit that we have loved
but a few;
that we have been quite indifferent to the many.
As for the remainders
well, we have really disliked or hated them.
We, recovering addicts, find we need something much better than
this in order to keep our balance.
The idea that we can be possessively loving of a few,
can ignore the many, and can continue to fear or hate
anybody at all, has to be abandoned,
if only a little at a time.
We can try to stop making unreasonable
demands upon those we love.
We can show kindness where we
had formerly shown none.
With those we dislike we can at least begin to
practice justice and courtesy,
perhaps going out of our way
to understand and help them.
When you see love, cultivate the path. That way, it is your own.
