We are here to love and we do love.  We love people, pets, places, possessions, jobs – all sorts of things.  The Buddha said that the pain of loving and losing is part of the human condition, and that our spiritual journey is to learn to love without attachment.  We can’t not love.  So all we can do is learn to love and let go.

So what can we love when everything is in a constant process of change?  We can love life itself.  We can love all of its cycles, gifts and challenges.  We can fall in love with our own mystical life force that is a reflection of the energy at work across the entire universe.
