Love is not a matter of getting what you want. Quite the contrary. The insistence on always having what you want, on always being satisfied, on always being fulfilled, makes love impossible.
Today, find the moments in which you can trade getting what you want, being satisfied and fulfilled, for love. Notice how that feels.
The remarkable thing is that we really do love our neighbor as ourselves. We do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves.
Today, consider how love, tolerance, and forgiveness for yourself would change your relationship with the world.
