175: In Service Of Love

We’re brought into this world by it, we sing countless songs about it, and yet it’s the only thing we haven’t got enough of in this world. Love, the mysterious force that holds all things together. Some have called it “gravity” or “attraction” or even “spooky action at a distance” but I know the truth. The truthiest truth is actually what we all know but most of us don’t know we know: love is the answer. The first moment I let the truth melt my heart, I was in an indignant rage over some kind of comment or tone that had rubbed my ego the wrong way. I looked at the person who was the target of my anger and a wave of helplessness washed over me; I had no idea what to do. I could leave the discussion in tears and hope that he gave in, but to what end? I saw myself in him. That was the key. I didn’t want him to suffer because my self-conscious ego needed stroking. In that moment I chose not just to love the separate part of me, I chose to serve the uniting force that keeps societies and families together. In service of love I laid down my ego and chose togetherness.

Choose love and there are no cons, only pros. The best part? It gets easier every time.
