Love Is an Energy You Can Always Choose to Tap into!

Beauful sunset in the sky

It doesn't always feel like it, but love never leaves you. It really doesn't!

Love is always there if you choose to open up to it. Love is actually all around you all the time.

Love is a force in itself - it's not something someone gives you. Someone just makes you open up to feel love.

In this way our partner often becomes means to tap into that sweet love - and it feels wonderful!

And when it comes to kids all you need to do is to decide to tap into love and then BECOME like. Yes, I'm not kidding! Becoming love will draw your kids toward you like an irresistible magnet. Go here for high-level parenting quotes of loving unconditionally beyond discipline.

But you actually don't need a partner or kids to feel it. In fact love is such a powerful energy that it just requires you leaving the door being a bit ajar for love to find you.

Yes, it sounds cryptic perhaps but try to read these love quotes with these words in mind.

Try to keep an open mindset and see if the words don't touch you!:

Love Sets Your Partner Free!

Love feels so good that we often want to do everything we can to keep it. We want to control it. We want to tie it down so that it doesn't run away!

In the name of love we thus often try to control our relationship and our partner.

However, this is not the power of love. This is the force of fear - the fear of NOT having love. It's the fear of loss or abandonment.

No, real love works the other way around. When you tap in to true love, it can do nothing else but set free ... both you and the ones you love. Freedom is in the nature of love.

~ Kahlil Gibran ~

Love Sets You Free!

When we love, we do the things that what we are born to do. We reveal the essence of who we truly are.

Yes, even though it sounds great on the one side, it may feel truly terrifying on the other.

Because what if we find out that we been spending all our time doing things that we actually don't like or even worse we've been someone that we are not.

So how do we know when we do what we are supposed to do and live according to our true essence?

Simple answer: It all makes sense!

When we live through love, life becomes deeply meaningful - what we do and who we are just feel right!
