We know all this...so what's the point???
That is the point. We know it all and yet we so often neglect to do it simply because we don't have the time, or we're tired, or something else comes in the way. And yet a loving smile or gesture can mean so much to the one who receives it.
Do it. Never stop doing it, Show your love to those you love.
And you know, there is an added benefit...it makes you feel better too, and, according to all the studies I have mentioned in other posts both here, in my other blog Rewiring the Soul and in articles on my website, the mere action of being loving gives you happiness as well.
One final point that you may wish to consider: if you have read posts on my other blog about intertwined molecules, you may have come to realize that we are all indeed one - humanity is not a mass of separate beings (rich, poor, black, white, first world, third world, young, old, good neighbourhood, wrong side of the tracks, and so on), but a mass of intertwined molecules...we have cutting-edge quantum physics to thank for these insights, and that of course, begs the question: why only love those that we love? Could we not conceivably love all?

For much more about love, about making choices, about inner well-being, about the self-transformational process - both in your outer life in the world, and in your inner life with your connection to your inner, divine self, have a look at my first book Rewiring the Soul: Finding the Possible Self (paperback or e-book, published in 2011).

From the Description on Amazon: Ask anyone, whatever their circumstances, if their life is vibrant, fulfilling, harmonious and happy. An honest reply is likely to be 'no', because to answer a truthful 'yes' is no mean feat. Only to grow psychologically and emotionally is not enough. And only to grow spiritually is not enough either. All three dimensions need to be developed in order to realize your full potential. If you are willing to assume total responsibility for the self and to start what is an on-going journey, you will quickly begin to glimpse the first fruits of the ultimate goal: inner well-being, freedom, peace, harmony and joy. This book sets out the pathway to self-mastery and self-discovery and walking that pathway will be the most exciting adventure of your life.
