Take freely.

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.  -- Mother Teresa


Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence. --Eric Fromm

My one wish for my life is that those around me feel loved and cared for - if I don't accomplish this, I will feel as though I have failed my brothers and sisters who walk next to me in this life. Sure - I get a bit testy on certain days (I am human)...but I hope that never changes the way people feel I think about them. I truly do think us humans should live to love each other and exist together peacefully - working towards a Zion on Earth :-) What an amazing concept.


Anyway - just had that thought and wanted to share.

I wish it were that easy. I would like for some more love and appreciation to come my way. But it doesn't, such is life.

love is powerful dude - that love rip off picture is a cool idea - usually in the Bronx, it's for a cleaning service, who i'd love to clean my apartment

you don't give love to get love, just as with anything else - you do things for you, because you want to do them - that equates to sincerity

@OT - MAJOR L-word and appreciation your way friend. I mean...I feel like I know you after reading your post about losing your...(down there) stuff.

@Bruce - Our dogs rock!

@Ryan - Loved what you said. Sincerity is something I strive for. And if I can't find it - I tend to force myself to do things anyway and I tend to fall into being sincere. It's interesting.

@Bz - SHARE THE LOVE. Just do it and you will be blessed.

@Miranda and LSD - you two both make me smile!
