When we know that love is truly the only thing that matters, we are free to simply love. We can let go of what doesn’t matter. We can stop worrying about what other people think. We can let go of fear and our attachment to the results. We realize that the only way to “fail” is not to try … and that even when we do, we’re intended to learn from it and go again.
Still, to love well is the work of a lifetime. It seems we can always purify our love just a little bit more. We don’t purify it once and for all. As we advance in love school, so does the purification.
But there is ever deepening clarity in the process. There is abiding peace. And there is true joy.
