How to activate your brain's superpowers.

Love is inherently compassionate and empathic.
I don't think so. I love my husband very much, but don't consider myself to have been very compassionate and empathetic. I didn't even know the meaning of the word empathy until I was 30, and I don't think I was capable of compassion and empathy until about 2 years ago (I'm 50). Maybe I'm a slow learner, mentally challenged.
Love is a leader. It leads one to do, say and feel things about what they are loving to that person, thing, hobby, etc.
Love is a teacher. It teaches you compassion and empathy and how to care for someone without conditions or restraints.
Love is blind. It is the energy that gives us the capacity to have blind faith, blind trust and a reason to hope.
To go all the way or not? That is the question!
It's time to return to the ancient wisdom of worshipping life rather than death.
