“Love is not for one's own vanity.
It is not the paint that adorns a facade
Nor is it to be feigned in order elevate one's own lot
Love is the immersion of oneself into that of another being.
To see oneself in another.
The recognition of both unity and hierarchy underneath each carefully constructed identity or appearance.
It is an understanding that causes one to say, 'that too, is me or could very well be me.'
To listen with complete awareness and give attention to another's story.
To share and care for well-being in the face of your own.
Clearing debris in the path so that we all could walk it with more clarity and ease.
To me that is love.”
