My Ongoing Pursuit of bell hooks.

"All awakening to love is spiritual awakening," bell hooks.

I was so sad about the passing of bell hooks at the end of last year. hooks All About Love: New Visions changed my view of love.

All About Love: New Visions is a social commentary on the state of love in society. hooks examines why we are withholding love and what could be done to produce more love within ourselves and significantly around us.

“To love somebody is not just a strong feeling - it's a decision, it's a judgment, it's a promise.”

Love is a practice, and we understand more about ourselves and what has caused the opposing ideas of love when we start to build a love ethic. A love ethic that will break down barriers and move us to wholly lived lives.

"Embracing love ethic means that we utilize all dimensions of love-- "care, commitment, trust, responsibility, respect and knowledge"-- in our everyday lives."

A goal of mine is to continue more of her work. Recently, I finished reading Communion: A Female Search for Love early in the year. Look for my thoughts on that soon!
