What Is Real Love

By Michael Thomas

Love, either its expres­sion or its attempted nul­li­fi­ca­tion, plays a daily role in each and every one of our lives.  It impacts our inter­ac­tions with both our friends and strangers, as well as influ­enc­ing our deci­sions about what we share, do, and say. It effects our per­spec­tive towards new infor­ma­tion, and our tol­er­ance for dif­fer­ences. As Erich Fromm said in his inter­na­tional best­seller “The Art of Lov­ing,” love is “an activ­ity, not a pas­sive affect; it is a “stand­ing in,” and not a “falling for.”” Love is inher­ently bound with respon­si­bil­ity, respect, appre­ci­a­tion, giv­ing, and shar­ing.  Love is an art; mean­ing one improves through con­cen­tra­tion, prac­tice, and an under­stand­ing of your own strengths and weaknesses.

Part of respect­ing and appre­ci­at­ing every­thing from peo­ple to nature is open­ing your­self to giv­ing it your full atten­tion, your con­cen­tra­tion.  I find it use­ful to min­i­mize my con­scious thoughts, and allow myself to fully sub­merge in the moment, the person’s words, and truly inter­nal­ize what they are telling me; truly con­nect with them as a fel­low human.  This helps me then answer as an hon­est human being.
