In what sense are these sayings "true". People who are truly in Love: 1. Are confident in letting go of fear --- without fear of later regretting having let go. 2. Live with firm foundations for safe intimacy/dialogue; foundations which have been laid carefully, gently, humbly and lovingly. 3 Know with confidence that each other whom they trust is not playing collusive games of mutual self deception with themselves and/or with others. 4. Know each other well through patient listening in balanced ways --- ways which have led to mutual discernment of how each other is present in Love. 5. Know each other as being present in Love without any compulsive preoccupations with issues of: control, coercion, entrapment, conformity, management, legalities, judgments, condemnations, alienation, or estrangement. 6. Are not preoccupied with issues of: superiority, inferiority; perfection, imperfection; good, evil; morality, immorality; better, lesser; salvation, damnation; winning, losing; domination, submissiveness; success, failure. People who are truly in Love enjoy the transcendence of many misleading preoccupations which engender alienation, disintegration, distrust, fear, faithlessness, and hopelessness. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
