Dear fellow journeyers, I wish to share this simple post from creatingreciprocity because it highlights a chief principle guiding our journey with our critterly friends: LOVE as enabler! Enjoy! Visit creatingreciprocity often, if you are not already doing so. You will be the richer for it!
Start with the simple things in life.
What exactly do you love?
Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he loves him. By his love he is enabled to see the essential traits and features in the beloved person; and even more, he sees that which is potential in him, which is not yet actualized but yet ought to be actualized. Furthermore, by his love, the loving person enables the beloved person to actualize these potentialities. By making him aware of what he can be and of what he should become, he makes these potentialities come true.
