Love is absolutely vital to our human life.
For love alone can awaken what is divine in you.
In love, you grow and come home to your self.
When you love and let your self be loved,
you come home to the hearth of your own spirit.
You are warm and sheltered.
You are completely at one in the house of your own longing and belonging. …
Love begins with paying attention to others,
with an act of gracious self-forgetting.
This is the condition in which we grow.

John O’Donohue.
