Love Is.

Love is the courage to stand for truth in a culture built on fear
Love shows us the common ground between disparate views
Love keeps us centered in our hearts so we don’t resort to manipulation
Love invites a full unique expression of each person
Love knows that more perspectives are always better than fewer perspectives
Love helps you stay centered on your purpose when tempted to go for the quick buck out of fear
Love sees past identity to connect souls
Love humanizes
Love is progress over protest
Love is standing for something, not just against something
Love shows us the people behind our fears
Love seeks to understand before being understood
Love is not giving up when things get hard or boring
Love doesn’t settle for binaries
Love sees the vulnerable child inside everyone
Love goes through obstacles, not over them
Love sees beauty through conflict
Love prefers moments to memories
Love is emergent
Love seeks truth and healing
Love seeks reconciliation over retribution
Love doesn’t reduce a human being to an identity
Love doesn’t reduce an employee to a job
Love doesn’t need to understand
Love is specific
Love is direct
Love reconciles the illusory comfort of normalcy with the ultimate power of uniqueness
Love is finding joy in maintenance
Love celebrates the complete messy expression of life
Love holds space for emergence
Love is focused (focus requires sacrifice)
Love reveals unity
Love sees between polarities
Love makes what’s possible real
Love holds discomfort until the true message is heard
Love doesn’t take shortcuts
Love doesn’t keep climbing endless ladders to nowhere
Love holds space for truth
