Abundant Approach

If I forget their names can I still love them?

Last night I had one of those long, sweeping, vivid dreams that take us one a roller coaster of emotions. Toward the end of the dream I had a lucid moment where I was aware that I have a family that I love with all of my being, but I could not in that moment remember who they were. I remember feeling their presence all around me but their forms and faces evaded me. It was not a scary feeling because I knew I was surrounded by their love and felt their presence – but I was incredibly curious about them. As I transitioned out of sleep and into wakefulness I felt a question emerge: If I were to forget the names and faces of my family, would my love for them be any less meaningful?
