Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or from a mear sense of duty, it stems rather from love and devotion toward men, and toward objective things.Albert EinsteinTo be devoted to something or someone means being focused on that particle thing almost exclusively. When you are devoted to a cause, you you work to achieve its goals. The you are devoted to a person, you place their needs above your own.When we are devoted to someone or something we take the time to show up. We stay the course. We do the best we can in each changing moment and we come back when we lose our way.You cannot buy or fake devotion. It can only be gathered by showing up over and over again with intention. If you feel loyal and loving toward someone or something, that’s devotion.Loyalty, respect and devotion are the basis for good relationships. Inspiring devotion in another person starts with you, your actions, your beliefs and behaviors.
I learned the real meaning of love. Love is absolute loyalty. People fade, looks fade, but loyalty never fades. You can depend so much on certain people, you can set your watch by them. And that is love, even if it doesn’t seem very exciting.Sylvester Stallone
