"Love teaches you the way," is a phrase that was given to me as a gift to explore and discuss publicly. I want to clearly delineate that this phrase emerged as a gift in the blank void of my mind/imagination and not a phrase or idea that I thought up. That fact that it's a gift confers a clear benefit which is that I don't need to defend any identification I might have if it was an idea of my own. As a gift, I get the pleasure of receiving it with an open mind and heart. I can be grateful for it, but also feel free to examine it closely under different circumstances to unlock and wonder at the meaning and use of it.
"Is it true?" That's where my mind goes first. My initial reaction is that it "feels" true. It also "feels" like I would be a better person if I accepted and recognized this as true and acted upon it in my life. If someone asked me "what is the great teacher in life?" I would answer without hesitation "pain." I don't like this answer and I've often resisted acknowledging it, but pain does seem to be the signal most people, myself included, are tuned into most of the time and it motivates us to inquire. Are pain and love related?
