Inkling 11: Love

Inkling 11: Love
I've been struggling with the thought that love can't fix everything, I was beginning to doubt the power of love, and then I had sit down and ask myself some questions. And the word that I've fixated on is fix. I think asking love to fix something isn't in its job description; not even under unconditional. Love and Unconditional Love are about presence, and I've been re-reminded of this of late. Re-reminded that love in all of its many forms requires one to wait, not always, but at times. Love leaves doors open, it's up to the other to walk through.

A while ago, my guru told me, “You can’t fix people.” I think it’s one of the most important lessons that I’ve struggled to learn and live with. Your inkling here really spoke to me. You can’t fix people, but you can love them. That’s good for me to remember. Thanks for sharing your insight.
