Remember that song by Nazareth from a million years ago called Love Hurts? It was a big hit. It made it to #8 in the U.S. on the Billboard charts back in the mid-70’s. “Love is like a cloud, it holds a lot of rain.”

Love doesn’t hurt, but when we have attachments to how our relationships should be or how they shouldn’t be then it can feel like Love hurts.

When our loved ones leave this world, or they leave our life, it can feel like life isn’t worth living, and that’s only because we have an attachment to what we think will make us happy.

Remember Mariah Carey’s big hit I Can’t Live? “I can’t live, if living is without you.”

These feelings are SO intense and they seem so real. What the intensity of emotions and feelings actually do is expose a completely false identification with being separate from God, from each other, from all that is good.

We can love the person fully, deeply, and completely without attachment. In fact, Love with attachment is not Love. It’s attachment, it’s affection, attraction, it’s lots of things, but it’s not Love. Love has no attachment, no condition. If there are conditions, there isn’t Love. It’s that simple.

Life without attachments is what I’m going for.
I’d like to live a life of great Love and give up all attachments.

I’m on my way and I’m SO grateful!

This way, Love can be fully enjoyed and it can also heal.

All attachments cause suffering.
Love is the only true healer.

Which will you choose: affection with conditions or Love without conditions?

Your choice determines whether you will suffer or be happy. If you notice you’re suffering, choose again!
