Addiction robs us of our ability to connect with the life around us. We are numb and disconnected from our feelings and the affections of others. This disconnection breeds hopelessness and despair. Life becomes meaningless. The absence of love in our lives creates much fear and anxiety. We find ourselves in a dark, lonely place. Love has the power to penetrate those walls and instill a light of hope. It is the power of love that saves us.
Love is universal. We all know it. We have all experienced it and exchanged it with one another, yet no one definition can fully describe the truest depth and meaning of the word. It is both a noun and a verb. Love is a language spoken between souls, heart to heart. Love is a powerful motivator for change, creation, and strength. Love has the power to create life, overcome tragedy and foster healing. Without love, life is empty. But with Love, anything is possible. Love is the foundation of change. It gives us the strength to let go of what once was and the hope of something new. It is all-encompassing, all-powerful and unconditional.
