“Of all the sustain-abilities, love is the greatest sustainer. The will to live and sustain ourselves is rooted in love – love for life – to engage life, enjoy life, endure its many inconveniences, disappointments, losses and sorrows, and yet desire more life.
Most interpret love as romantic love, which however is only one kind of love. By recognizing other qualities of love in our lives, we are motivated to keep going and get prepared for the rewarding and most complex and evolved of relationships, the love partnership.
Love for life is inclusive. Love yourself. Love others. Love people. Love your work, your home, your earth. Love is a deep, deep well-source of sustainability. Even in your darkest moments of despair and discouragement, there’s always someone or something to love and be loved by. This force is life-saving and life-giving.”
