What does love mean to you?

We’ve been trained to believe that the definition of “love” is solely to be in love with someone else.

The thing is, how we relate to the concept of love is often tied to our own self-worth — and it all starts with love for yourself. Only then, can you give and receive love in a healthy way.

Mindvalley Founder, Vishen Lakhiani, experienced this firsthand during his young adulthood, and had to overcome a number of brules (“bulls*** rules”) when it came to his love relationships, including:

  • Brule #1: Marry someone from the same culture
  • Brule #2: Love should only be between a man and a woman

These are just two of the obvious, but equally insidious, beliefs that control our definition of love relationships — and which must be questioned in order to find a truly fulfilling form of love.

As you can see, we often limit the definition of “love” to simply seeking external sources, when really, love is multifaceted and means different things to different people.

In this powerful video, Vishen unpacks the many meanings love can hold for different people: intimacy, pain, avoidance, fear, contentment, joy.

You’ll also discover simple, yet powerful exercises to help you reframe your visions of love relationships — and what you need to feel content in this area.

If you’ve ever wanted to delve deeper into your love relationships and find what truly fulfills you, Vishen’s exercise will surely help you to better understand yourself — and what love means to you.
