Imagine LoveSince there was no mention who wrote it I like to express my appreciation to Synchronicity for it coming my way.

I took the liberty to format it with colouring and bold words.

Tech Support: Yes Sir/Ma’am… how can I help you?

Customer: Well, after much consideration, I’ve decided to install Love. Can you guide me though the process?

Tech Support:
Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

Customer: 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 ?

Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?

Tech Support:
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 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?

Customer: I don’t know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?

Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have completely erased.

Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?

Tech Support:
Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.

Customer: Oops! I have an error message already. It says, “Error -

program not running on external components.” What should I do?

Tech Support:Don’t worry ma’am. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.

Customer: So, what should I do?

Tech Support:
Can you pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.

Customer: Okay, done.

Tech Support:
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.

Customer: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?

Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually
everything gets it 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 to you.

Customer: I promise to do just that. By the way, what’s your name?

Tech Support: Just call me the Divine Cardiologist, also known as the Great Physician, or, just “I AM.” Most people feel all they need is an annual checkup to stay heart-healthy; but, the manufacturer
suggests a daily maintenance schedule for maximum Love efficiency.

  1. This is such a great reminder of the fears in life and what is needed to let love in. I like the “package” of seing it as a program and us humans as machines. It gives a new twist on it that makes it easy to grasp. We all know that it is not possible to buy a program and then install love. Love is freeware and it is everywhere, if there is not too much malware and old memories that blurs our minds and vision.

    I wish you a lot of love.

  2. This is a clever presentation of comparing our souls to the hardware on a computer in real time! It touched my heart because at some point or another everyone faces struggles with self doubt, or negative feelings about what they are capable of accomplishing. It is a part of being human.

    Yesterday I watched a video done by Jonathan Bud did on “comparisonitis” and he talked about most of the emotions and feelings mentioned in this “tech support” article. Since he is known as one of the most successful entrepreneurs on the net, most people would assume he wouldn’t let these feelings hold him back. At the end of the video, he made a statement that starting today all of us will make a commitment to stop any negative “comparisonitis” talk. Even JB deals with it once in awhile.

    It would be nice to know who the author is of this article. I would like to post this on my blog…with permission. Thank You. Drop me a quick note at

  3. hi Yorinda,

    What an intriguing thought process on love. If it could only be so simple and step by step forward! Your example clearly shows how much interference we allow in our lives. We all need a little reprogramming and reminders from time to time. Thanks for pointing that out.

  4. Hi Yorinda,
    Thanks for sharing this cute story that helps explain very important life principles.
    It is so cool to be a part of it when I am with my daughter and her daughter (my granddaughter who is now 7) when they share their special loving times. Each of them thinks that the other is just the greatest. And my little granddaughter is so full of love that her face is smiling and there is a great skip in her walk. She is a bundle of joy, and a lot owing to her mom who loves her so much.
    Oh, I just remembered…I made a plaque in church when I was young, and it was always on my wall, and it said: “God is Love.”

  5. I really like this post. So simple and true. I really like the comment that love is freeware. :) This was some thing I needed to read this morning. Thank you for sharing this very inspiring and loving post. :)

  6. That is an awesome play on customer service! May you have a lovely day!

  7. I have seen that message before, but it’s one of those that never grows old. Whoever wrote it had a great sense of humour, and knew how to combine it with wisdom. Great lessons!

  8. What an inspiring piece this is – I will definitely save it! Over the years I’ve worked with a lot of people who have come from broken families with a variety of domestic issues involved and forgiveness is a big challenge, especially if abuse has been involved. Rather than seeing someone continue to beat him or herself up, I suggest they try just accepting that it’s ok not to love a parent, but for their own sake to try and forgive the past by accepting that their parent(s) did the best they were capable of doing under the circumstances.

  9. How Sweet! I really liked this post you shared, as I have never seen it before. How true though, that we must pay special attention to the condition of our heart on a daily basis. If we don’t, hardness creeps in and we find negative attitudes cropping up. Yikes, we don’t want that. We want a heart of love.
    Bless you!

  10. That is such a cool way of getting a message across… especially as I spend most of my time on a computer!

    It truly is a great reminder. I feel the hardest part for most of us is to be less critical of ourselves and understand that we can’t fully love anyone if we don’t love ourselves first… just like you said :)

    Thanks for sharing this story

  11. Yorinda, this is a wonderful post! Very clever! And, isn’t it true that we need to love ourselves first? And that only when WE feel loved can we truly love ourselves and others. I LOVE that the Tech Support person provided his name. He’s the one who provides the forgiveness and love to us first so that we can love and forgive others. Thank you for sharing this, Yorinda!

  13. Such an interesting post Yorinda, I don’t think I have ever seen a post format/topic like this. it is unique for sure. It is somewhat funny and ironic how some people may view their life and emotions as the same level as a computer or server that is broken and needs fixing or upgrading/debugging.

    Most physical things such as computers and cars for example are much easier to fix than that of ones thoughts feelings and emotions, although it is doable there is no magic pill or potion one certainly has to be more than interested and growing and developing as a person. Self growth and development can be very powerful on a number of levels for an individual.

    Great piece :)

  14. That’s a nice story with a great message. These days we need more of these reminders. Thanks for sharing it.

  15. Hi Yorinda,

    I did get this mail long time ago but it is and will always be
    something great to read.

    I think love will be accepted as from a Dos computer (100 year and older )
    till the newest operating system on the market (1 – 100 years).

    The only bad side of this program is that you need to install it your self
    not even the “Tech Support” can do it for you :-) .

    But the Good side is you can not lost it if you give it away it always
    come back to you.

    Great post
    Thanks Theuns

    I find this story so poignant, and such a masterpiece in the art of analogical story-telling!

    Absolutely Love it!

    It’s ok you didn’t write it, but definitely you’ve earned my respect by giving proper credit where it’s due!

    The step by step process in the story is THE way to inculcate love for self and others… Way to go, Yorinda!

  17. Hello Yorinda,

    It has been years that I have seen this cute story. Genius who came up with the story. This time I will share it with my kids who are all computer techs and parents.
    Thank you for sharing. Love the humor of Theuns about the fact that we have to instal Love ourselves, and that tech support this not can do for us. LOL
    Have a wonderful Easter weekend.

We should all learn from this and give more LOVE to the people around us, do everything we can to make their lives better. Positive minded people are so awesome to be around!

  19. What a wonderful way to express such deep feelings. I just wish that the average tech support department was as loving and forgiving as this one.

    The only sad thing though is that the people who need to read this the most are the ones who would not read it even if it were put right in front of their eyes.

    What a surprise when I started reading! I’ve written a 30 page ebook called ‘Emotional Clearing” that is pretty much summed up in this post!

  24. Hi Yorinda,
    This was a fun post, and I love how “installing” and “programs” was used as an analogy to real life feelings and emotions people have. Very clever and to the point. The idea of daily maintenance is so important because it only takes a single negative thought to start a spiral of other negative thoughts where you feel bad about yourself and believe it. Wonderful post … daily positive thinking and personal celebration are warrented. :-)

    • Leslie & Yorinda, I couldn’t have stated my opinions better . . . agree on all counts, Leslie. The only thing I have to add is to recommend Don Miguel Ruiz’s wonderful book “Mastery of Love,” especially the chapter on the Pizza Kitchen.

      Basically this is a story that shows if you are filled with love then you have plenty for yourself and others and do not need to beg to fill the need.

  25. Yorinda, Thanks so very much for sharing this. I enjoyed reading down the post, following the directions within my head and remembering how I’ve updated those programs in my life over the past couple of years. I also rebooted a few of the ones that needed an update. Great fun. Thanks – Debi

  26. Hey Yorinda,

    It’s been awhile since I visited your blog and I’m so glad I came back! Really enjoyed this post about ‘Installing Love’ – so funny and yet so true. Don’t know who wrote it originally but they are very clever!

    Thanks for sharing this Yorinda.


  27. Yorinda I wonder how many people will identify with the tech support scenario very clever. More importantly I wonder how many people will connect with the fact that we are nothing but machines without love. Great post.

  28. Yorinda,
    This is simply magical! Invoke forgiveness–that was my favorite instruction. I kept coming back to your blog just so I could re-read this. Thanks so much for sharing it. I think it’s true strength is that the story is so simple that its deceptive. The fact that you can make a decision to increase all of the good stuff in your heart and let go of the less desirable stuff just sneaks right up on you while you are enjoying the fanciful tale. I so appreciate you sharing it and even going the extra mile to color-code it so it would be easier to follow along. Great leadership and a great post. Have a POWERFUL day! Allegra

    Thanks for making me laugh!


  31. I love that love is freeware. Freely available whenever we are bothered to look. Always there to hold our hands. Has been known to send a few hearts in over spin. Sometimes can cause the blue screen of pain, and then a reboot is needed, and just like a new OS installed, it’s amazing how well we feel after…

    Thank you Yorinda

  38. It’s not often I come across a blog post that I find super fascinting. THIS is one of those posts! It is so easy to relate to this article because I am a firm believer in bringing love in to my life and I try to leave that energy with others that I come across as well. My husband is a System Analyst and I’m excited to share this with him specifically. Fun deal!

    How many posts are written as a dialogue? This is really cool! I told my daughter to go to my FB wall and read this. Your post was absolutely worth sharing everywhere! Can’t wait to come back and visit here to see what else you’ve got going on.

  49. What a cute analogy to make points that we may know but don’t always follow. In a class, we learned to name the bad stuff – like blaming or resentment, etc so we could just stop it in its tracks. We were supposed to say it – either out load or internally in that moment. Doing that drains a lot of the power from it and makes it easier to go on with more healthy stuff in its place. Thanks for this great reminder about love and what holds us apart from it. – Rog
