be "alone"

Another reminder in love.

The premise is stated wonderfully by Thomas Merton...
"It is in deep solitude that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brothers.  The more solitary I am the more affection I have for them...Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers for what they are, not for what they say."
Since love is a response to love within us and since love must be sincere, I think that finding a place in which love can dwell and come from is a good place to start.

This week I will find quiet moments, even if I am not even alone.  I will dwell on quieting my heart and having gentle responses.
