Only Love

“There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.” –Don Juan de Marco


I recall watching this 1994 movie starring Johnny Depp, Marlon Brando and Faye Dunaway with a sense of awe, delight and validation of what I have long known to be so; that ‘reality’ is subjective. In case you missed the film; Johnny Depp’s character, dressed as a latter-day Zorro, attempts suicide and is found by Marlon Brando’s psychiatrist persona. Brando’s doc-self listens with rapt attention and fascination to the stories shared by the love-struck young man claiming to be ‘Don Juan’, the world’s greatest lover. As he attempts to sort out ‘truth’ from alleged psychotic delusion, his life and relationship are transformed.


How would your life be altered if you knew for certain that regardless of the question, love was the answer?

    Love is the answer. Yet how that plays out in one’s life and daily living is the essence of who we are and the relationships we have with the world
    I am Love, Jeff

      Yes you are… Light of the world, shine on me…love is the answer. <3
