Just musing about love these days & kind of realise the wisdom in the words of Solomon in Proverbs. To love someone is to give to them, without expecting something back. And this algorithm actually usually rewards the giver massively, when the receiver reciprocates.
Interestingly, have experienced this a lot more when I dull my expectations of returns of my “investments” & just give care, attention & affections, where appropriate of course. In fact, my heart feels freer, just by caring, refreshed & strengthened.
