LIVE / LOVE To live is to love. What we are as humans, what it means to be conscious, is built on the backbone of to know, to be known. To live in self reliance and reliance on that self alone, means to create a universe of one. A universe of one is a walled city with a larger country just sitting out there to be understood. We are formed for interaction, to be part of someone else’s story and for them to be part of ours. To be conscious is be part of another’s consciousness. With that in mind, what greater power is there than love? Love has the ability to validate the connection, honor the countless stories your story is indelibly connected to. More still, love is the only thing that can repair the damage done, the connections severed, to make whole a fractured humanity.
