Love's Reciprocity

Love is an amazing thing. A little love-gift can germinate into a big love fest. Sometimes it can be challenging to feel loved. I've been there -- forlorn, self-possessed, misunderstood. Then, someone comes into my life who is kind or generous or gentle just when I was feeling roughed up like what I needed was to be seen and responded to intuitively with grace and charm. If you can let the love in, you can let the love out so that when you see someone beat up or low down, you can respond to them with some sensitivity. Sometimes it's as simple as laughing at someone's joke. Ultimately, the subject becomes the object -- the lover becomes the beloved. And the more you let it out, the more you can let it in. What a tremendous untapped resource.
