I had a fascinating conversation the other day about “Reason” the ability for a human to use their reasoning mind to sift through information and make a decision. The person I was talking to felt that emotion needed to be removed from this process, but I disagree. We kept talking, defining our words to each other until we found a common ground on which to agree, and then we continued.
Love is not just romance or physical. Love is what I call the energy that suffuses all LIFE, is life itself. This love is defined by me as “appreciation” and I put forward that if you stand in appreciation of “All That Is”, then you can apply your reasoning mind from this love, not fear. Love First requires strength, conviction, and the knowledge of the SELF.
“Today I will use my appreciation of myself, my world, and others to help me clarify what I would prefer without judgment as “good or bad.”
