Love is a verb

Posted on 09 February 2021

Happy February! It’s a good month for loving if you choose it to be. It could be romantic and come with chocolates, flowers, and valentines. If that’s not your cup of tea, embrace love in a different way that suits you better.

Sometimes we forget that love is a verb. To be loving is to be guided by an open heart, empathy, kindness and courage. Loving ourselves and our world inspires us toward greater creations and wiser responses.

Take a tough situation in your life and ask yourself:

When I soften into a loving posture, what do I see and know?
What is the most loving action I can take here now?
What does it look like to include all parties (or emotions) in this situation in a loving response?

Choosing to be loving to yourself might include giving yourself support instead of trying to do it all on your own.

Choosing to be loving to others might include you backing away at times and creating breathing room for all parties.

Choosing to be loving at work might include doing your best, but not over-giving or trying to compensate for systems that actually need to be reformed.

You’re not looking for the sweet or sentimental path. You’re looking for the most courageous, inclusive and wisest response — one that will create more for you and everyone else too.

You have a great capacity to be loving. If you forgot that this year, tune back in again. Your love transforms your world.
