What is love? It’s a state isn’t it. It can feel great and it can be painful. Or is that really the actual state of love? Isn’t it everything around it? Around us.
Those things we really like, are excited about, want more of and also those things we don’t like, disagree with, want to be different, sometimes even hate or are scared of.
I think love is a constant, fluid, sometimes contracting and at other times expanding. It’s not something that ends.
What sometimes ends is the like for each other. We allow fear to cloud our world into non-acceptance, exclusion and hateful action.
So your choice is really about living closed in and trying to protect yourself from something you have decided is dangerous, or living from love with an ever expanding curiosity for differences and an openness to the world you haven’t gotten to know yet.
In the recent past I had a couple of experiences with a different reality than this one and it was both exhilarating and comforting. I know there is more than what meets the eye (most of the time for most of us) but I had never experienced it myself.
Lately I feel as if it has slipped away. Wonder why? Is it the busyness of my life, my focus elsewhere, the lack of stillness? When it happened before, I wouldn’t say that I was more present. It seemed that it just happened, “out of the blue”.
I so wish for me to be part of that space……please come visit me again!
