is by far the most positive force in the world, and it's a
force that we have to give actively to others.
Unfortunately, our super-strong entertainment industry
tends to present love as something that we "fall
in" to, something that "makes us whole,"
usually through an addictive relationship with another
person whom we "love."
if we learn to use love wisely, we can make a tremendous
difference in the world, even if it's in our own little
corner of the world. If we learn to give love, then
we can give many more important things to the people we
love: encouragement, courage, hope, peace, strong
self-esteem, a feeling of belonging, a feeling of being

I'll learn how to use love in such a productive way before
I leave this planet, so that I can leave some seeds of
love behind when I go.
