This Is The Reason Why You Should Give Everything To Love

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Give all to love; obey thy heart.”

What are you giving to love? Is love really love to you? What does it mean to you?

To me, “Love is Love.”

“Love is Love.” It is the only way forward in our lives. We can’t do anything productive without love. We can’t eat without love. We can’t read without love. We can’t help others without love. We can’t help ourselves without love. In fact, without love, we are nothing! Yes, we are nothing.

Without love, there is no way forward for us. Why is that? Because we can’t live in fear, we can’t live in hate. We want to get better in life. And that is only possible if we have the courage to live in love. No matter what, my friends, love is better than hate. It is a giver. It gives life without expecting anything in return. It transforms us without damaging us. It connects us with other people without focusing on our differences. It doesn’t discriminate. It just loves us. And if you want to connect with your inner life, your inner house, the only way to do it is through love.

In fact, do not do anything without love. Love is the way. Nothing more, nothing less. According to Paulo Coelho, “Love is the force that transforms and improve the soul of the world. ... It is we who nourish the soul of the world, and the world we live in will either better or worse, depending on whether we become better or worse. Because when we love, we always strive to become better than we are.” That is why “Love is Love.” Love is all that we need to live our lives. The Scripture says, “Love thy neighbor as thy self.” Love your neighbor as yourself. If you love God, love thy neighbor. If you love God, love thyself. Do not ignore thyself. Because you need thyself.

Follow Love, Not Fear

Follow love, not fear. Love yourself. You love yourself by choosing love. You do not get to love by carrying hate thoughts in your mind. And to spread your love around, you must carry love thoughts in your heart. Why is that?

Because you cannot give what you don’t have. If you don’t have love, you can’t give out love. It is in your heart that you must keep love. It is in your heart that you must plant the seeds of love. Do not just plant it there. If you don’t nurture it, if you don’t water it, it will die. Love is fragile.

Follow love, not fear. When you follow love, you can pursue what you want in your life. You can do what you want to do in your life. You can do what makes you happy. You can free yourself from fear. You can free yourself from your past. You can do what you have always wanted to do. When you follow love, you can face your fears. You can listen to the demons within you. You can become your real self.

Life is all about becoming you. It is about becoming whole. To do that, to become whole, you don’t need to change everything about you. All you need to do is to connect with your real self. The self within you. You can change a few things, but not everything. You can stop telling yourself false stories. You can stop feeding the things that are hurting you. You can stop living your old life. And you can change what is not working for you anymore, and replace them with positive habits. And to connect with your real self, you must be honest with yourself. Do not lie to yourself. It doesn’t help. It hurts.
