It is as straight forward at it can get. Every single person, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, social class, economic background, and any other classification, has love in their heart, somewhere, and has the capacity to love someone, but so few people actually show true, genuine love to one another.
I feel that stranger to stranger love, can be love in its most pure form. When someone buys food for a homeless guy, or when they give them a coat or a shelter on a cold night, they show compassion and love. When we thoughtlessly do something kind for someone we don't know, we show our true humanity, and our true compassion and love. That is what this wisdom is about. We all can love people, but its not that easy. Only a few show it and act on it. It is a shame, because if we all loved each other, and the 'few show it' part in the wisdom, became 'most show it', then a lot of our troubles would be gone.
It also ties in with a song I highlighted two weeks ago, called "Everybody Loves Somebody" by Dean Martin. What that song says is that we all love somebody sometime. Why it ties in with this piece of wisdom, is that we all can love, we don't show it, but when that one special person comes by, then we show our true love.
I try to my love my friends and family as much as I can. I try to follow words and literally practice what I preach. It isn't easy, and it isn't always fun, but you always need to keep going and keep trying.
Was this piece of wisdom helpful? Would you want to live by this piece of wisdom?
