Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

This is the goal of every human encounter, but it is only rarely achieved. When it is achieved it presents a quandary, since there is literally a part of myself or a reflection of myself that is separate from me. I have not found any way to live this goal of loving my neighbor as myself without the risk of great pain. Love then is really a promise, a promise that can only be fulfilled in heaven. Until then the command to love one's neighbor as oneself will always be mixed with pain and apprehension.
