Author Topic: LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING  (Read 5707 times)
« on: April 28, 2006, 02:17:01 am »


Love would be simplified if everything we believed were true and reality conformed to our perceptions.

But perception is not like that . 

We see what we are prepared to see and believe what we want to believe. 

In a large sense, we are slaves to who we already are.

Understanding in love implies letting loose of expectations and perceptions by allowing what evidence of truth there is to present itself.

It means being free of stereotypes and rigid prejudices and staying open to new experiences.

When we say we don't love something or someone, it usually means that we are unable to see it or them clearly.

Coming to a better understanding is a slow pain taking process, but the rewards are great.   

We may discover that though it can be painful to learn new things and change our anti-quated beliefs.

It is far more painful and costly in the long run to remain static and unsympathetic.
