Request: I feel wonderful when I hold hands with someone.
Request: Defined as only loving your family or close friends, and maybe people who seem to have value to you. A way of being. All others are excluded and made into strangers. This seems instinctual, like a wolf perhaps, but many humans seem to do it.
Priority request: writing, making art etc., with a spiritual intention.
Priority request. Genesis 1:27.
Loving others is heart-based, while loving yourself is thymus-based. As the heart dimension is nested within the thymus dimension, loving others serves the highest good only in the context of loving yourself. (The highest good includes you!)
The intellect is fundamentally incapable of discerning the true nature of Love over 500.
Request: When somebody has good intentions, but your are not feeling it. Leaves a bad aftertaste.
Comment on YouTube: "This song, in my humble opinion, is quite possibly the finest moment the 70s ever produced."
Request: One of the flying fish from this morning's contemplation.
A heart orientation motivated by love.
Request: in overt and very subtle ways.
Also calibrated: level at which one no longer feels grief about romantic relationships...
Request: Said by Doc during a video lecture. At what level it is true? Do animals have individual souls or not? On one hand it is said that animals have group karma, on the other hand it is written in TvF that animals have individual variation in LoC.
When emotional payoffs are surrendered and motivations purified.
Request: Pets yes, but really all creatures big and small. This seems to be a unique kind of love because there are people who love animals yet don't love other people or themselves. Notably, Doc said he prayed for the animal kingdom every day.
