All we need is love.

All we need is love.  How many problems or challenges could be solved if only love were present?  How great would life feel if we could experience love everyday?  True love.

Some believe that to define True Love ruins its purity.  I understand this sentiment, but I am a researcher and I want to know what others think, feel, perceive, and believe about Love . . . I want to grow my awareness of expressing True Love.

“Perhaps it’s because true love has different meanings for different people. Dr. Neder defines true love as caring about the health, well-being and happiness of another person to a greater degree than your own health, well-being and happiness.”

“Christiane Northrup, M.D. says “True love is when you care enough for another person to allow them the space and time they need to become all they can be.”

“Kathlyn Hendricks, Ph.D,. and Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., say that true love occurs when you shift from unconscious commitment to conscious commitment. . .  Conscious commitment . . . means that you reveal your true self to your partner and support your partner through thick and thin.”

Wow.  This is an amazing definition . . . shifting from unconscious commitment to conscious commitment.  I love this sort of thinking — and feeling.  Being mindful of your commitment to another.

“Laurie Moore, Ph.D., says all love comes from an open heart. “When you’re together, it’s open and safe at the same time.”

Open and safe.  Being mindful of your commitment to another.  Unconscious commitment to conscious commitment.  Allowing the other person the space and time they need to become all they can be.  Putting another person’s well-being and happiness above yours.
