The words “I love you” are both the pinnacle of human experience and the distraction many Zen, Buddhist, and Taoist teachers warn us to avoid.  Real love is not a noun.  It is a verb.  It is an action of flowing energy that connects us all and is most perfectly expressed when guided by equanimity to the action and reactions of the thoughtful partner who both expresses and receives guidance with empathy and respect. Love challenges us and inspires us. It is a spiritual practice at the highest levels of Life School requiring both nonattachment and compromise.
