Talk about love, whether we discuss being in relationship with each other or just loving ourselves, is a subject covered from the beginning of time. I have no desire to compete with the great art, poetry, music and literature out there on this subject.      My little contribution won’t even scratch the surface of all that has been said about love, but here goes: We’ve all heard the lyrics to the song, All You Need is Love. Pretty much it’s just the following on endless repeat: 

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

And it goes on and on and on. That may be the “hook” that we all remember, but the verses are actually quite interesting in their simplicity:

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
It’s easy.

Nothing you can make that can’t be made.
No one you can save that can’t be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It’s easy.

Nothing you can know that isn’t known.
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.
It’s easy.

The verses are my favorite and I think the most profound of the song. Maybe Lennon and McCartney were on to something. Love doesn’t have to be hard. Life doesn’t have to be hard. You do have control. There’s nothing you can’t do. You can learn how to be you in time. Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.

A wise man once said: Wherever you go, there you are.

Be love. Be kindness. Be yourself no matter what and love and kindness will find you. Of that I have no doubt.
