Love is a curious energy. We all want to have it so much that it kind of gets in the way of getting it. Love messes you up. It invites you in and gives you a big hug. You like the hug because it’s warm and inviting and comfortable and satiating and stimulating. You want to keep hugging love and putting energy into it because you want love to love you back. You think that putting love in equals love in return; love that you can feel. But really that’s just tactile love. Love is still there even if we can’t feel it physically
