A friend of mine asked a question which led to an answer that I have refined for this post. I hope it helps someone.
Love alone isn’t enough to heal brains and bodies.
Love alone isn’t enough because some people’s idea of a loving act is incorrect for the circumstance and is actually going to further the problem or condition. That is how we end up with co-dependencies between people, etc.-
It is love with direction, and not just any direction but an “independence building self love and appreciation” type of direction, that heals.
Love in the direction of healing.
Most people don’t know how to love this way. So, someone has to direct them to give the correct direction. And so it is that we become a society of health or ill-health promoting beliefs. The leaders in media religion and politics propagate… the state of things.
Unless we choose for ourselves.
This statement also applies to therapies and medicines.
In the end, its not the therapy or the concept of love that heals but the knowledge and intention of the leader, the therapist, the lover and the client culminating in chaos or coalescing into health.
Many medicines and therapies are just there to keep us alive and hopeful until we figure this out.
