Instead, it simply means that every day I’m taking action to the very best of my ability and my current understanding, doing the very best I can do with the answers I have right now. It also means that every day I’m embracing the uncertainty of my path— and in doing so, I’m making space for possibility and for grand potential to unfold.
In contrast, true love is an act of will, not something that you “fall” into. You can fall into desperate desire, and you can fall into fatal attraction, but you can’t fall into love. Love is not a feeling. Love is a sacrifice of sorts, and it’s a sacrifice of all the illusions that our culture expects from us. To offer true love—to wish good to someone —is to stand against the culture—not as a revolutionary or terrorist, but with a humble offering of understanding and compassion, something better than what others “see” in their blindness.
