This is a card from a deck of inspirational cards by Jim Cogley called Wood You Believe. They are an ancestral healing deck, which I came across in my quest to "heal my ancestors" and thus healing myself and future generations, in the process.

Sometimes we confuse love with need. The person we supposedly love may not feel loved but trapped by our insecurity. Needy love is jealous and possessive. It uses the other to fill our emptiness and avoid the pain of loneliness. Mature love is synonymous with freedom. How free am I to be myself is the measure of how much I am truly loved.

Real love is patient and kind and it also rejoices in the truth. It wants the best for the other and doesn't turn a blind eye to faults.

  • How can we speak the truth in love, rather than love to speak the truth?
  • What we most need is critical love but what we least need is unloving criticism. Which do I give the most of?
If you love something set it free. If it comes back its yours forever. If it doesn't it never was.
