How To Love

Directions (long version):

  • Remember that good, warm feelings may or may not be present
  • NOT so "warm" feelings may actually be present but they must be ignored, swallowed, denied the opportunity to influence your actions
  • Act kindly toward the other
    • despite your own lack of time
    •  despite opinions of others, including the person you are trying to love
    •  despite what you've observed the other person say or do because it is all about you learning to love well and not about whether your judgements of the other person are  correct or not
    •  despite whether that person wants you to love them or appears to want to be loved by anyone at all.

short version:

Ignore your feelings and be kind to everyone all the time.
