Of a certain age. Buddhist. Lover of a good read. Always more interested in asking the right questions than having all the answers.

THREAD: I've been a Theravada Buddhist for over 20 years. While it's my religion, it's only sometimes that I deeply appreciate that it's also my lens. Watching #lucabeth & thinking about true love is one example. #Hearties@krbisme05@blackredrose70@blancef@Shayhooray1
In Buddhism, (Buddha-Dharma), there are four elements that must be present for true love to exist between two people, whether romantic or not. The 1st is maitri (loving-kindness). This is the capacity to help your partner to be happy. But at the same time, you are also happy.
