    Wow, this guy is really well-spoken. You can tell he doesn’t need to think much about what love means to him. It’s oozing out of him every day. Thank you for capturing this… reminds me of what I feel, as well.

    Nice clip, very sentimental and I can say this is something I have experienced but its appears to be something that seems to have occurred in the past, and something about the pursuit of love never felt right to me and for the longest I thought it was me until I discovered another mindset about love that is I am discovering is truer for me.

    From Bryon Katie’s “Question your thinking, change your world.”

    “Romantic love is the story of how you need another person to complete you. It’s an absolute insane story. My experience is that I don’t need anyone to complete me. As soon as I realize that, everyone completes me.”

    “When you believe the thought that anyone should love you, that’s where the pain begins. I often say, “If I had a prayer, it would be: ‘God spare me from the desire to love, approval, or appreciation. Amen.’” To seek people’s love and approval assumes that you aren’t whole.”

    You’re just suffering from the belief that there’s something missing from your life. In reality, you always have what you need.”

    “You can’t love anyone, you only love your story about them.”

    End of excerpts.

    The above statement is what I see presented in this documentary …wonderful, warm feeling stories about how someone loves someone, most of which ends when the story doesn’t jive with their concept of reality, and then on to the next love story.

    I like this concept that BK teaches and I can see how it frees me from seeking from out there what I as a creation of God already have:

    “If I want love, I can’t have it. I am love, and as long as I seek it from you, I can’t know that. To love you is to separate. I am love, and that is as close as it can get.”

    I now see why relationships based on finding the right formula for seeking love do not work in the long run … I was looking for love that I believed exists in another body.

    There is a metaphysical or universal law, “You attract what you are.”

    I will end with a couple more quotes from BK.

    “When I walk into a room, I know that everyone in it loves me. I just don’t expect them to know it yet!”

    It’s not your job to love me, that is my job!

    Peace
    Ossie

  5. This is sweet! Not sure it isn’t his dream relationship, but I can say “not knowing” your partner is a powerful place to be related as well as to be responsible for “knowing” them as well.

    Thanks for your work.
