The Look of Love

Unknown

I had a conversation last night with a very good friend about a subject related to the quote below. While love seems an abstract in this day and age, what would you say is its manifestation?

Children?

Family?

Spouse?

Friends?

Your nation?

All these factor in, but what of all that is yours to “own?” Yourself, I think. So be what you’re meant to be:

a Writer?

a Musician?

an Engineer?

a Plumber?

a Carpenter?

Do that – be that to its fullest – and you’ll be personally fulfilled as a human being. According to Teilhard de Chardin, love is at that fulfillment’s basis.

“Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves.”
~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin ~
