You cannot get wet by the spoken or written word “water”.
This is a word that was created to describe the substance that is.
You can see it, touch it and drink it.
It was created to communicate what exists.
The words “love” and “I love you” are an attempt to describe the act or action of loving.
It is not a “feeling”.
By themselves, they are just words that can be heard by the ears but the words are not what can be felt in the heart.
You cannot know and feel love by the word, only by action of being loving.
Love is respectful, kind, honest, giving, unselfish, consistent and committed.
It is not greedy, needy, selfish, careless, hurtful or fickle.
If I wanted to convey love but had no language to use, what would I do?
“The only way you know you love yourself or anyone else is by the contracts you are willing to make and keep.” Pat Allen
