Love changes people, but it doesn’t intend to.
If you get a sniff of an agenda in what’s being called love, run in the other direction please. Because that’s not love.
You are beautiful, amazing and fascinating as you are. You are loved as you are. Period!
I’ve experienced it and seen it: when you realize you are overwhelmingly loved as you are, just as you are, with no ulterior motive to change you, the transformation is an amazing and happy one. You rest in yourself.
It actually goes like this: “I love you so much. Full stop!”

When he turned 50, Einstein granted an interview in which he was asked point-blank, do you believe in God?
“I’m not an atheist, and I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws. Our limited minds grasp the mysterious force that moves the constellations.”
“I cannot conceive of a personal God who would directly influence the actions of individuals or would sit in judgment on creatures of his own creation. My religiosity consists of a humble admiration of the infinitely superior spirit that reveals itself in the little that we can comprehend about the knowable world. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.”
“I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one. You may call me an agnostic, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.”

Vedere un abbraccio tra un poliziotto e un manifestante mi fa pensare che allora un altro mondo è possibile.
