Thank you for sharing your piece too, Sylvia! Yes, I agree with you: some think of “love” as attachment, rather than as the spiritual force that permeates, constitutes, and links everything, and which naturally supports (and permeates and constitutes) All That Is — including us. So if people are operating along those two very different definitions, then naturally, that conversation would be harder… and the message in my own essay would not be appropriately received… but I’ve written for those who see love in the more expansive way. As well as for those who find it once they’ve been primed to see it that way, and just needed that small “reminder.” ;)
I also enjoyed your piece very much. Your description of life-partnership love as something very peaceful, rather than firework-explosions and butterfly storms, resonated deeply with my own experience. I always appreciate when people put that message out there into the world. Thanks for spreading the message!
