    For me at this point, love means union. Once upon a time it was falling in love with and union with individuals that was transforming via excitement and losing myself and finding more of myself and expanding myself. Now that I am older, the practice of love is more general and spiritual. That is, I've come to feel union to some degree with all others and with all that is, which has been transforming and is my born again into being more kind, patient, understanding, compassionate. I have experienced such transformation being with my wife, being with my children, interacting with other people, and being with natural miracles such as looking out ito the Milky Way on a clear star filled night. I'm not feeling fear in loving these days -- I think what helps me to transcend fear is knowing how fulfilling loving is.
