“I would rather have eyes that cannot see; ears that cannot hear; lips that cannot speak, than a heart that cannot love.” - Robert Tizon

It’s free.

It’s within.

It transcends absolutely everything and anything else.

It’s powerful.

Just give it away and it becomes uncontained when released.

Love and hate are both passionate motivators.

They have been around since the beginning of time.

Which motivator we choose charts the trajectory of our lives.

Love strengthens our resolve that humanity is good and wholesome.

Hate causes us to shake our head and ask the why question of disbelief when unbelievable events occur.

Love creates a psychological house that is continually growing, nurturing and life giving.

Hate tears down our psychological house towards selfishness, despair and animosity.

Dan Pearce said, “People who love themselves, don’t hurt other people. The more we hate ourselves, the more we want others to suffer.”

There have been many takes regarding love but here is another one.


Love is the unconditional effort to appreciate and respect another human being intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and physically.

There are no boundaries, restraints, or white picket fences that contain this thing called love.

It is similar to a beautiful rose in full bloom.

One cannot force the unfoldment of this four-letter word love, as with the rose, the unnatural unfoldment causes its demise.

Those in life that are blessed and fortunate to experience this unconditional effort called love are happy and fulfilled.

To expect someone to fall in love with you and not understand the latter is an exercise in futility.

One must love oneself first before they can even begin to love anyone else.

As stated earlier, in order to accomplish this, one must know thyself.

This is the ultimate beginning of awareness and understanding that leads towards the true meaning of love that is expressed emotionally and physically.

How many beautiful people do you know that have no understanding of what lies in these previous words.

Knowing thyself begins to clear the path towards greater unfoldment of our talents, aspirations, and everything else that is desired intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially.

Choose love and not hate as your psychological house will thank you for years to come.

Carpe Momentum.
