there are memories.
There is a sense of longing.
After love there is hope.
After hope there is...
Beyond love and hope is Life.
If we live, we love and hope.
We hope for love and live for love.
Often when we love there is joy and sometimes there is also pain.
None of us escapes the realities of love.
While love does not hurt, our attachment to a source of love can cause us pain.
Yet, without sources of love, we become lonely beings.
In the absence of love, there can be hope.
After any experience there can be hope or there can be attachment.
How we do know when it is hope and when it is attachment?
Hope is a fluid pulse.
Hope is unseen love.
We may ache with hope but we do not suffer.
Attachment is a pressured pulse.
Attachment is one-sided love.
Attachment helps us to empathize with our human condition.
To be human is to experience love and hope.
Hope is humbling and love is empowering.
Life has meaning when we love and are loved.
We feel accompanied when we are loved. Life is more complete.
There is attachment with love.
Attachment can be fear based.
Hope is never fearful. Hope is filled with faith.
After hope, life perseveres.
