Understanding Real Love

This is a re-blog of an earlier post… with a message worth repeating. πŸ’›

real love - darkness and forgiveness

“Until we have seen someone’s darkness, we don’t really know who they are.

Until we have forgiven someone’s darknessΒ we don’t really know what love is.”

Marianne Williamson

For anyone who has been a in a long term loving relationship , you can probably relate to this quote. When we Β allow ourselves to be seen in such a vulnerable way it opens up real understanding and connection.

Now consider if you were to say these words to yourself:

Until we see our own darkness, we don’t really know who we are.

Until we have forgiven our own darkness we don’t really know what love is.

The world becomes a kinder and less fearful place when we forgive and love ourselves.

  1. You’re right. It’s so important to look at all of the little nooks and crannies that we spend so much energy hiding from ourselves.

  2. The shadow stuff and the lighter fluff, all of who we are within this swirling, whirling wholeness, is lovable and loving. As we dare to sidestep ego from time to time, we rediscover essence. What a happy dance!
