INSTRUCTIONS: Think of a concept that you find undefinable, elusive or divine.

Actively contribute to its undefinable nature, elusiveness or divinity in a way that can be documented.

Løve.

I choose løve.

Løve is undefinable, elusive and divine.

But I just don't think that goes far enough to explaining what Løve is.
It's close.
It's real close.
But it's not there just yet.

Løve is more than all of that.
I, Lincøln created the group Løve in the hopes that it would spread beyond our preconceived notion of what love is. I wanted the meaning of løve to grow, to expand. To live a life of it's own. To grow past common love into something great. Løve is so much more. Løve is about respect and openness and vulnerability and contribution and sharing and giving and expression and so many things to so many people. I think by creating the group and letting people associate it with tasks they have done contributes to it's growing and undefinable, elusive and divine nature every time somebody adds it to a task they've completed.

And here's another way I will spread the løve.

If you have done anything, and I mean anything at all to spread løve, thus contributing to it's undefinable nature, elusiveness or divinity in any way at all, message me or comment here and I will add you as a collaborator on this task and help you help the rest of the community in spreading løve in the form of (at least) 10 more points that you get to spend spreading løve.

Aww Lincoln, this is wonderful. You are wonderful!

PS-I can tell my life is in a good place when I find myself in situations where I am in the embarrassed minority because I am NOT posting pictures of animal sex. Excellent.

Showing love through massage
posted by Sundroplets on November 6th, 2008 12:30 PM

I love your task Lincøln! I was trying to think of how I have contributed to love not only recently, but in general. I decided it is through massage. I have probably been more useful as a trained massage therapist than another other career or academic endeavor I have pursued precisely because it is a way of spreading love. In this case it is by way of touch.

I found a story I want to share....
In ancient Japan a recently married young woman had, according to custom, moved into her husband's home where his parents also resided. After a while she visited a Buddhist monk, and, with tears in her eyes, expressed her frustration with her mother-in-law who was constantly bullying her. She was so desperate that she asked the monk to teach her a way by which she could gradually kill her mother- in-law without arousing any suspicion. The monk replied that he knew the perfect way for her to achieve her aim, and set about teaching her a form of massage through which she could gradually kill the old woman. A few weeks later the same young woman returned to the monk in a state of great agitation. The monk inquired whether his method was working, and the woman immediately begged him to show her how to undo the harm that she might have done. The monk feigned surprise and asked what had brought about this change of heart and mind. She answered that, after a few weeks of regularly massaging her mother-in-law in the way that he had taught her, she had grown very fond of her and now they both loved each other very much. The monk then smilingly explained that it had never been his intention to show her a way to hurt anybody, quite the contrary. He had taught her massage to bring them both together, thus creating love and harmony in her family life.
