Love for Lease

“I love you for free.”

Yes! And yay! And let’s bring more of this to ourselves and each other!

Funny thing is... there was a “For Lease” sign hanging right above this beautiful message. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud...

We WANT to love for free, and freely so. Yet, many have that lease sign towering above this desire, and the terms and contracts at the ready.

“Sign on the dotted line, pay that security deposit”, and THEN “I will love you for free.” Ha! The terms of our endearment.

But love itself needs no contract. Right? Relationships may need agreements, including the relationship with ourselves, but we certainly shouldn’t be required to pay for them (ie investing obligatory promises) nor should these agreements be prerequisite to loving freely.

Security is an illusion. Forever is an illusion. Form is guaranteed to change. Love is the only constant, and it doesn’t have to change with the form. Really, it doesn’t change and yet we do. We turn that love valve off. And, truly, the one that suffers is the one no longer loving freely.

LOVE people! Love freely... without assurance, or terms, or proof of investment or return. Otherwise your “building” may sit vacant like this one.
