Happy Valentine’s Day Month! I like to reach out to my friends from time to time to find out how they might define a universal topic. I asked them to answer this question: “What Love Means to Me?” and this is what they shared:
“Love to me means: transcending all illusion of separation and Being and Acting from the perspective of Unity/We Are All One.”
Iben Larssen, CEO & Founder at iNavLife; CEO & Founder at iBEnMusic, Long Beach, Calif.
“Love means my children.”
Amanda Stern, Emmy Award Winning TV Producer for Wheel of Fortune, Los Angeles, Calif.
“Love to me means everything: risk and reward; letting go when necessary and hanging on to memories; love is essential and is what makes us human.”
Cindie Alwood, Co-Founder & Executive Director at Women’s Center of Greater Lansing, Lansing, Mich.
“When I hear love I think of agape love, which is the greatest love shown to us by God that is unconditional and anticipates our needs before we even think of needing something.”
Lauren Aitch, Owner and Head Designer at Lady Aitch Designs and President at The Aitch Foundation, Lansing, Mich.
“Imagine loving someone as much as you can possibly love. That is but a glimpse of the love that God has for you.”
Peter Michael Escovedo, Award-winning American Percussionist, TV Producer & Musical Director, Los Angeles, Calif.
“Love, in its truest form, means the willingness to sacrifice everything of oneself. It is felt with the absence of hesitation or regret … like an instinct with the only intent being the hope of their peaceful fulfillment.”
Melissa Anschutz, Actor & Producer, Grand Rapids, Mich.
“Love to me is sharing body and soul, ecstasy and pain and infinite trust.”
Betty Baxter, Jazz Songstress, Lansing, Mich.
