by Mary Elizabeth Leach (Raines)

The heart is always trustworthy.

It is when we fill ourselves with expectations of some return, or demand that our love be demonstrated in some physical or emotional way, or when the hormones get mixed in, that we can feel deceived by the heart.

Longing, neediness, sexual frustration: these are all indicators of something other than love.

Pure love does not require reciprocity. If you are called upon to love, let love flow. Ask nothing in return. Trust the heart.
