We are intended to be in relationship with the ongoing movement of life. But when you look at life as though nothing will change, it won’t. The more you push away what you don’t want, the more you keep it in place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xn8iQ8D8H_o&t=14s
Love has a way of cutting through the dross of our human nature. But when – misunderstanding the action of love – we try to coerce someone into being what we want, those efforts that we think are going to fix them actually “dull” us. We couldn’t possibly be further away from love than in the moment we are trying to change another human being.
