Chapter 5, Page 22, Book 15


It is love that shapes us. Love or the lack there of. Love and its awesome power. Molds us, holds us together,. And makes us into what we are.


May 22nd - love is the mold

Love takes many forms. It is an ifinite emotion that can never fully be contained. You can not make yourself stop loving someone. You can not choose who you fall in love with, You can love many people at the same time, but most of all, you can never stop reaching for it.
 Ashley Young 

What we love, we will pursue. What we pursue we will, to some extent, acquire or attain. In that, we are shaped and fashioned by what it takes to get what we love. That’s why musicians are usually pretty easy to spot. The same goes for artists, starving or otherwise. They have been shaped and fashioned by their love, and their pursuit of it

We are shaped and fashioned by what we love most. 

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


We usually use the word ‘want’ or ‘need’ when we pursue something, but quite often we love that thing, or what we love what we believe that attaining or possessing that thing will bring us. Those who love power will pursue it. That is where it can be a detriment.

It’s good to take some time, think it through, and pursue what you love. Anticipate what it will do to you, as it shapes and fashions you, and plan accordingly. Live the life you want, live the life you plan. Follow your dreams.


Our lives are marked forever by those we meet.
 May you be blessed with good friends.

 Our lives are marked forever by our friendship and the love we experience. 
May you learn to be a good friend to yourself. 

Our lives are marked forever by the quarrels and the reconciliations. 
May you be able to journey to that place in your soul where there is great love, warmth and forgiveness.

To love one must be willing to forgive and forget. The last paragraph on your blog post today eludes to this. "Our lives are marked forever by the quarrels and the reconciliations. May you be able to journey to that place in your soul where there is great love, warmth and forgiveness."

I must remember these words in this order:
It’s good to take some time, think it through, and pursue what you love. Anticipate what it will do to you, as it shapes and fashions you, and plan accordingly. Live the life you want, live the life you plan. Follow your dreams.

That is so true that what we love we will pursue. It doesn't even have to be a person, but could be an interest, food, etc.
