Once you know what it is & where it waits Love will never be far from you, always within reach…
The experience of Life is all about the flow of Love… And Life offers us a multitude of ways and levels through which we can experience Love…
Let Love lead your soul… Make it a place to retire to, a kind of cave, a retreat for the deep core of being.~Rumi
A few thoughts come to me as I struggle with the balance of this dance
I keep tripping and losing my footing every now and then
but as I pick myself up from the dance floor this pops to mind:
Keep Love Big
I think it is when we diminish Love that the wheels come off
We are so tempted to shrink Love to fit a person
Not just tempted – we keep on doing it!
But no person can give us all we need from Love
No person can really satisfy that desire… there is aways something missing…
because Love is more… and Love is bigger, Love is everywhere.
Drink it from the quietness, from the leaf that alights on the ground, from the dew drop on the petal, from the sun filtering through the trees, from the smiles of those around you, the laughter of children, the patter of feet on the street…
Love is looking for you around every corner…
don’t miss Love reaching out to kiss you in every moment.
I can no longer live in the safe space, it is not safe at all.
It was only Fear that trapped me there and tricked me into staying
With steady dripping words of terror in my ear
Covering my eyes and turning everything to grey
But then Love came and stopped me in my fumbling
To sit me down and lift the blindfold…
For a time I was vulnerable to the intensity of Life
I needed shielding as my eyes adjusted to the Light…
So Love found a quieter place and led me there
And as I walked away the shadows shouted at my back
and clutched at any part of me that they could reach.
But Love looked into my eyes all the way deep to my soul
And I saw the shadows were nothing in the Light of Love.
They came from a small and shrinking place,
that one day would be gone forever, only ever in the mind.
While I believed in Fear I could be afraid,
with the world my enemy, and I no match for it.
Now I believe in Love and I am Beloved,
And the universe is my delight.
Peace is wandering about my heart and kissing the flowers that grow there.
I have found the way Dear One, come and join me!
Leave what you know behind it has nothing more for you
It has brought you to the edge of darkness
Now step into the light
I weep for you in the darkness, in the nightmare
Tears run down my face… If only you would wake
I know you cannot see, but can you hear me calling?
Somewhere in the distance.. Can you hear?
Can you feel me trying to wake you up?
This is Love Dear One, this is Love
There is Life and Love on the other side
I have found the way…
