Fifty Ways to Love Those Closest To You
by Dwayne Cox
Prior to proceeding, let us first visit for a minute about what I mean
by Love. I'm speaking of love as a verb. Consider that I do not have
much of a distinction between expressing intimacy and loving. This
article is written to share a few ideas about what love can look like,
a sensual, spiritual expression. This is the way of being that is
worthy of your life.
Imagine what the world would be like if everyone loved everyone else
deeply. What a world that would be! We do not allow ourselves to do
this, and many of us feel threatened to love others, or we make up
rules about it or have boundaries about who is ok to love and how and
why. Some of us even go to the trouble to fabricate rules about how it
is acceptable for others to love. Personally I do not understand this,
but then a lot of social programming was lost on me.
I wrote this article/list as a way of encouraging more loving behavior
in all relationships.
What if we dedicated our lives to loving more?
Wouldn't it be helpful to check a list every now and again to see how
we are doing, and to inspire our own creativity in this area?
I challenge you to write a list like this one for yourself - it will
bring you one step closer to practicing your own loving behaviors with
others. This list is a draft and is meant to serve only as a guide and
an inspiration. Notice what comes up for you as you read each of
these. If this article moves you, I would love to hear from you.
Fifty Ways To Love Those Closest To You
practice listening in every conversation
prepare healthy delicious foods
partner in accomplishing work objectives and deliverables
make it a priority to schedule time to play with those you love -
simply being with them is not enough! Play!
figure out what they need most from you and in life and partner with
them to get their needs met
engage in relationship skill building and communication skill building
with those you love and with other enlightened beings
become curious and even fascinated with any reactions you may have
formerly been "owned" by. When "hooked" or "triggered" while
interacting with them, just BREATHE and don't take make it personal.
Look at your part in the triggering event, since most of what is
occurring for you is based on your own story/idea/perception/belief
about how something/someone is supposed to be/not be, so it might make
sense to reframe the event/situation into one which evokes gratitude
in you - after all, you're interacting with the handiwork of a power
greater than yourself.
be sensitive and compassionate with challenges, patterns, beliefs and
limitations - yours and those of others. We are all spiritual beings
having a human experience; humans are by our very nature limited by
our beliefs, habits and patterns.
model integrity and responsibility - be your word.
give time and attention to feelings, needs and desires - yours and
those of others
take special care of yourself physically, emotionally, psychologically
and spiritually -always - as a daily practice.
spend quality time with those you love as often as possible
invest at least a couple of hours each week just loving them in ways
they feel and experience love
create and maintain elegant personal and professional environments
keep your own living areas clean, neat and orderly
have fresh plants and flowers available and give them as gifts often
read to your loved ones what *they* enjoy
write poetry in their honor and publish it
leave them love notes and other affirmations everywhere
buy and/or make them special gifts, wrapped, with a bow and a card
mail them love letters and cards, just because, whenever, as often as
share meals with them whenever it works with your schedules
go for long, loving, meditative walks with them, often
really let them know how special they are to you, in ways they can hear
find out what their "love language" is, and speak it to them as often
take care of yourself so you can be there for them
make the bed every morning (little things count)
give them massages and other loving physical contact as much as
make them special meals, just the way they like them
ask them what is most important to them short term and "down the
road", and partner with them to manifest that
dedicate an entire week, starting immediately, to praising them for
what they are up to that is working, with no criticism about anything
read books and articles relating to how to being more loving, for
them, for you, for your relationship with them
be "the Buddha" with them, whatever that means to you
take care of "the little girl" in them, whatever that means to you
take care of "the little boy" in them, whatever that means to you
make a list of fifty things you can do for them, just to focus on
loving them more
make a list of one hundred things that are special about them
give them that list as a gift, on quality paper, framed
invest time, effort, energy and other resources in personal growth
work on yourself in
the areas of compassion, patience and unconditional love
take time out of your busy week to just *listen* to them in ways they
get them outside into nature more often, away from stress
create elegant physical environments for them
speak lovingly about them to as many people as you can
make quality time with them a priority every day
be more interested in what is important to them
find out what they love to read and read to them

and how much they mean to you
do research about how you can be more resourceful to them as a friend,
a confidante, a lover and a partner
