Everyone Wants To Be Loved; Do It Well.
“For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.” Rainer Maria Rilke
Love is the testament of our ability to do the greatest and most meaningful work of our lives. Everything else pales beside our ability to create and nurture a love that endures. The capacity for love is innate in us, a perfect seed of goodness that is born in the moment we join the life force. Yet we are not born with the skills that love demands. This is life’s real purpose for each of us, to be sculpted by love’s hand into the best version of ourselves. Learning to love, ourselves and those we make promises to is the process of true maturation and the door to a meaningful and inspired life.
The capacity to accomplish this work is developmental, which means with practice and dedication anyone can become more skilled at loving. This is the task that is most worthy of your life. Learning to love well is the heart of the matter, and really nothing else matters as much.
Thank you for joining on me on the journey.
