I never understood the teaching that giving is receiving. But maybe it’s just as simple as giving a high five. You don’t just give something, you get something, the same thing, a thing that exists between you, created by you both, expressing an emotion, and a sense of unity. Like a high five, Love is created between two people, but belongs to neither. It is not deserved or purposeful. It is neither conservative or liberal.
To give Love is to enjoy the duet of affection that would never have existed without you.
