A reader asks:
Can I really learn to radiate love and be at peace?
How do I love someone who did something despicable?
This whole love thing might just be too hard! Why is it my path? Why did I choose it? Why did it choose me?
But none of that really matters. It is my path. Period. Nothing to do but get over myself and get on with it!
And so, we practice — because what we practice, we get better at.
Yes, with practice you can learn to radiate love and be at peace. With practice, I can manage to love someone who did something despicable.
There was a song (by The Joy of Cooking band. Who remembers them?):
“Sometimes like a mountain, love seems too tall, and though I’m climbing I’m not sure of where I’m going.”
