When your heart longs for love, give love to others. Not too much, yet seek to fill others’ hearts.
Your love does not have to be accepted, and yet you must give it. We’re not talking about fanfare, you understand.
Giving love is feeling love in your heart.
No others have to know from where exactly where the love is coming from.
Love is here.
For a moment, you have shared your love. It is your own giving of love that you long for.
Longing for love is longing to give love from your heart.
Your giving love doesn’t require having to be a public matter.
It is enough that you love.
Your love does not have to be requited.
Love is given or it is not.
Let your giving of love be for another heart to receive.
It is true that love falls where it falls, and, yet, you can drop off love from your heart wherever and whenever you like.
There is no law against it. This is not asking for love back. Love is not a commodity.
Giving love is finding a place to drop off your love.
You always have more to give. This is how love likes it.
You do not take ownership of love, not the giving and not the recipient of your love. The way you give a smile is the way you give love.
You do not count the smiles you give. You simply smile, and smiles are given, and smiles are received.
Whatever regard is made of your smiles, it doesn’t matter.
What matters is that you smile.
You do not count the smiles.
You do not measure them.
A smile is a smile, and love is love.
We are not talking about love forced.
Love is free and freely-given, or it is not love.
Forced love from you is not love, and loved forced from another is not love.
Love is love, and love is freeing.
Consider your love like a canoe in sun-sparkled water. You paddle your canoe, and all who are on the shore see you.
This is how love is. It is just there, and it is given.
And someone who may even be at a distance receives your love.
He may be aware of your canoe passing by even as he is not consciously aware.
The sparkling light has reached him just the same.
And you have been canoeing in the water, and the water sparkles on you. No one is truly a passerby to your love. It splashes on all. Even when you aim your love to someone in particular, it splashes on everyone.
There is nothing you focus on more than love, yet too often you may focus your love on getting it back.
How wonderful that would be, yes, of course.
At the same time, how wonderful it is for you to give love like confetti.
Let your love fall all over the world. Let every thought be how much love there is in the world, and how much love you have to give.
However much love you have to give, you have a thousand times more, an infinity’s worth more of love to give.
The reservoir of love is never emptied.
Even if you have to scratch for your love to give, you have a reservoir filled with love, and, so, you can be the fulfiller of love.
You may think you want to receive all the love in the world.
What you really want is to give it and keep on giving it.
Without your focusing on it, the love you give will bounce back to you and from surprising places.
Let it. Don’t keep looking for love.
Keep giving it.
