How to create love

"If we know how to create the energy of love, understanding, compassion, and beauty, then we can contribute a lot to the world." -Thich Nhat Hanh

The core of our being is love. We do not need to create love; we are love. Being love is a frightening prospect because loving makes us vulnerable. Through compassion and understanding we recognize, that those around us are afraid to be vulnerable and we tell them it's alright. When someone cannot behave in a loving way, it is compassion that allows us to see that it is a struggle for them. If you can accept the amount of love another is capable of giving, without wanting to change it, then you will see beauty in everyone.
