This quote from Alethia Luna is one of the most passionate descriptions of love I have ever come across.
Love is not only softness. Love is not a “woo-woo” new age cliche. Love is ruthless acceptance, fierce passion, and intense openness. Love will take your pain in its arms and cherish it with the white fire love of a mother towards its newborn child. Love will cradle and clothe your pain, and listen to its dying words with unsurpassable devotion and fervor.
The moment you feel this love throb in your chest, in your soul, is the moment you have found the doorway to your pain’s liberation.
