There are degrees of development and degrees of love. I believe that if one loves consciously one simultaneously loves conscientiously, loves concretely, and loves constructively. Whoever heard of destructive loving? I wish I could share a personal story where I was 100% conscious and 100% consciously loving at any given time but I can't and I probably could not notice 100% of any way of being. That could be an excuse for my allowing myself to be lackadaisical. When one is loving consciously at one's level of development, and accepting what and where one is am at that present moment, then one is doing fine at that moment.: doing fine even if the hands aren't as wide open as someone else's hands, No one is perfect. It is fine to extend effort as we move towards effortlessness. Trying too hard to be what you are not can interfere with opening wide the hands. Thanks for the opportunity to respond. Warm and kind regards to everyone
