********* Love 2.0 – A humorous computer analogy
Yes Ma'am, how can I help you?Customer:
Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install Love.
Can you guide me through the process?
Yes I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?
Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready.
What do I do first?Tech Support:
The first step is to open your heart.
Have you located your heart, Ma'am?
Yes, but there are several other programs running now.
Is it okay to install Love while they are running?
What programs are running Ma'am?
Let's see, I have past-hurt, low self-esteem, grudge, and resentment running
right now.Tech Support:
No problem, Love will gradually erase past-hurt from your current operating
system. It may remain in your permanent memory, but it will no longer disrupt
other programs. Love will eventually override low self-esteem with a module of
it's own called high self-esteem. However, you have to completely turn off
grudge and resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly
installed. Can you turn those off Ma'am?
I don't know how to turn them off.
Can you tell me how?
With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke forgiveness. Do this as many
times as necessary until grudge and resentment have been completely erased.
Okay done, Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?
Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin
connecting to other hearts in order to get the upgrades.
Oops! I have an error message already.
It says, "Error-program not run on external components."
What should I do?
Don't worry, Ma'am, It means the Love program is setup to run on internal hearts
but has not yet been run on your heart. In nontechnical terms, it means you have
to Love yourself before you can Love others.
So what should I do?
Can you pull down Self-acceptance;
then click on the following:
Realize your worth;
Acknowledge your limitations.
Now copy them to the "My Heart" directory. The system will overwrite any
conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. Also, you need to
delete verbose self-criticism from all directories and empty your recycle bin to
make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.
Got it. Hey!!! My Heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my
monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart.
Is this normal?
Sometimes. For others it takes a while, but eventually everything gets
downloaded at the proper time.So Love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang-up.
Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you
meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back
I promise to do just that."
