Close Enough To Perfect
Am I close enough to perfect for you? Even though, nobody appears to be compatible with me. You see, love is not about, whether someone is compatible with you. All that is required, is a willing partner of the opposite sex. Love is about commitment, because it’s really all up to us, if we want to be compatible with each other.
The more time you spend with your opposite, the more you will discover, that you have more things in common. And if you spend even more time with her, you will find out, that you have less things in contrast.
Love Makes Us Better
People are the same, all over the world. The only difference, is that we behave differently, when we’re in love! When the lover stretches out his hands and offers his heart to her, he soon realizes, how vulnerable he has become, because he’s hoping, she’ll be careful, and not drop it? If by accident or on purpose, the heartbreak is the same.

“Fearlessness is what love seeks,” Hannah Arendt wrote in her magnificent early work on love and how to live with fear. “Such fearlessness exists only in the complete calm that can no longer be shaken by events expected of the future… Hence the only valid tense is the present, the Now.”
This notion of presence as the antidote to fear and the crucible of love is as old as the human heart, as old as the consciousness that first felt the blade of anticipatory loss pressed against the exposed underbelly of the longing for connection. Excerpt from The Four Buddhist Mantras for Turning Fear into Love
“To love without knowing how to love, wounds the person we love. To know how to love someone, we have to understand them. To understand, we need to listen… Understanding someone’s suffering is the best gift you can give another person. Understanding is love’s other name. If you don’t understand, you can’t love!”
“Lastimas a la persona que amas, si no sabes cómo hacerlo bien. Para saber amar a alguien, tienes que entenderlo. Para entender, necesitas escuchar… Comprender el sufrimiento de alguien es el mejor regalo que le puedes dar. El otro nombre de ‘amor’ es ‘la comprensión’. ¿Si no lo entiendes, como lo puedes amar?”
