God is Love --- a noun. But when God manifests in this world through each of us, Love becomes a verb.
We cannot be Love, do Love, know Love, unless we are emotionally open and authentic. Feeling and expressing our emotions are the way to come back to a remembrance of God within us. If we are shut down, God's Presence is covered.
We must acknowledge and sometimes express our sadness, our joy, our anger, our fears, our vulnerabilities, etc. We must allow ourselves to be vulnerable, even if this means we can be hurt. You can only experience joy to the extent you are willing to feel sadness. We cannot allow society's norms --- that a woman can't express anger or a man can't cry --- to stop us from being who we are and who we need to be. We must be brave and willing to say what is on our heart. Being emotionally open with others leads to deep relationships with God shining through in full force.
