Limits to Love and Attraction?

This is my firm belief.

The only limits to love and attraction are the ones we ourselves allow to put on ourselves. whether because we &;buy into&; societal pressures, cultural norms or other programming&;we are capable of loving at such a grand scale, but hold ourselves back- often due to this programming and/or fear associated with the &;need&; to control us via this programming.

If this scares you, I would request you examine WHY this is a scary concept for you? If your answer is, because the law/bible/somebody&;s rules&; say this is &;wrong&;- you EXAMINE. DEEPLY examine whether this is truly an accurate reflection of reality? It may be that for *YOU*, such levels of loving or being attracted may not be available- but can you imagine or see that it could be available for others? If it isn&;t accessible to you- some self-reflection might help you better understand why this isn&;t something that you can see for yourself. It could be that you simply haven&;t imagined the possibility, or are uncomfortable or even afraid of this possibility?

If, after examining for yourself why this statement might make you uncomfortable- you can start expanding your boundaries easily by imagining that you love or feel goodwill at least, to others you already meet and interact with. Attraction doesn&;t have to be part of the equation- just goodwill and compassionate Love for others can help you grow further into the idea of being able to Love without limits.

Try it. It might be a fun experiment!
