“You haven’t yet opened your heart fully, to life, to each moment. The peaceful warrior’s way is not about invulnerability, but absolute vulnerability–to the world, to life, and to the Presence you felt. All along I’ve shown you by example that a warrior’s life is not about imagined perfection or victory; it is about love. Love is a warrior’s sword; wherever it cuts, it gives life, not death.”
— Dan Millman
Most of the time when we refer to someone as being lucky in love, we mean that they have had happy and successful relationships. Perhaps and regrettably the phrase is used more often than not in negation, talking about someone’s lack of love. Yet to me every chance I have to love brings fortune especially if I can enter into it with little or no expectations, especially that of having my love reciprocated.
What an amazing gift of the universe, this ability to feel the essentiality of another person and to truly value them. The more we can love, the more we can appreciate the gift that the other person is and the more people whom we can love the greater the gift.
With deepest gratitude, blessings and love, G
