There was an interesting period in my life when I wanted to change but didn’t know who the new me wanted to be.
Equally, I didn’t know who I wanted the new me to be.
That’s what makes us lonely – not knowing who we are. And when we attach an idea of who we are to another person, a lover or a specific person we want to manifest a relationship with, we feel lonely without them.
We need them.
We falsely worry that our life would be empty without them.
I suggest you celebrate yourself and your life.
You have to play the lead role in your own reality instead of putting the person you want to manifest a relationship with first. You can prioritize them but imagine the relationship and your love as you want it and as it makes you happy!
I mean, being able to love someone the way you want to and have them love you back…don’t you love the thought of that?
Don’t you want that?
I recently promised to share some of my favorite LoA quotes with you.
My favorite quotes are those that have spoken to me most powerfully. They state the meaning of love and self-belief. They also come from only three people – Thomas Merton, Henry Ford and Rumi. They’re all life lessons and therefore, LoA quotes.
In life, I tend to like and be drawn to individuals that offer lasting quality. When it comes to life lessons, I believe these three incredible souls have said everything.
There is an abundance of beautiful LoA quotes out there but the words of these three people have moved me the most.
“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.” (Thomas Merton)
“Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy.” (Thomas Merton)
“Love is not just something that happens to you; it is a certain special way of being alive.” (Thomas Merton)
“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.” (Thomas Merton)
“Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.” (Henry Ford)
“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” (Henry Ford)
“What matters is how quickly you do what your soul directs.” (Rumi)
“Be with those who support your being.” (Rumi)
“Let yourself be drawn by the strongest pull of that which you truly love.” (Rumi)
“Love is the bridge between you and everything.” (Rumi)
“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.”
“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
