Been thinking about love lately, specifically as it relates to the idea of "impact always trumps intent." I could claim I'm acting or speaking out of love, but if my actions or words aren't received as love, well then they aren't actually loving are they.
@andy12@Rachael Yeah, I look at it as a weird game of metaphysical telephone. Our intent goes through our filter to become our actions, our actions go through a societal filter to become what they receive, and what they receive goes through their filter to become what they experience. There can be a breakdown anywhere in there even when everyone is trying.
