“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
When we let love in, we allow others to be themselves. When we allow others to be themselves, we, ourselves, are loving.
Let yourself be affected by the person standing in front of you. Quit thinking so much about what you’re going to say next, and see them clearly. Allow yourself to be fascinated, confused and open to everything they have to teach you. It might hurt sometimes, but the risk is worth it when the return is the freedom to be fully alive.
