Love comes when we least expect it, when we are not looking for it. Hunting for love never brings the right partner. It only creates longing and unhappiness. Love is never outside ourselves; love is within us.
Don’t insist that love come immediately. Perhaps you are not ready for it, or you are not developed enough to attract the love you want.
Don’t settle for anybody just to have someone. Set your standards. What kind of love do you want to attract? List the qualities in yourself, and you will attract a person who has them.
You might examine what may be keeping love away. Could it be criticism? Feelings of unworthiness? Unreasonable standards? Movie star images? Fear of intimacy? A belief that you are unlovable?
Be ready for love when it does come. Prepare the field and be ready to nourish love. Be loving, and you will be lovable. Be open and receptive to love.

My name is Maria Amata Di Lorenzo. I am Italian, from Rome. I have written books that have been distributed to date in nine languages and creative texts for radio, film and theater. I have worked for over twenty years as a journalist and as an author and editorial consultant, and have led creative writing courses.
I love to create stories that I like to tell in words and pictures. Have you read any of my works? I call them “the works of my heart” because they are books that are born from my soul.
Two of my books will soon be published in English: Teresa of Calcutta – The Novel of a Soul; Rosario Livatino – Justice Requires Love. This book tells the story of Judge Rosario Livatino, killed by the Mafia in Sicily in 1990, and will be published in English, French, and Spanish, as well as in Italian.
In order to give your soul spaces for reflection and beauty, I opened my site, Amata for you, and my blog: “The place of sensitive souls“. I opened this place on the web to build bridges of friendship. In Italian, you can read my blog here: www.mariaamata.it
