wonderful until it sours or ends.
When romance sours, it may seem to cut us off from our inspiration. We feel like we are in an empty gallery.
When romance ends we may feel bitter and hopeless.
Romance may leave us crushed but it does not destroy us.
What destroys us is indifference.
Indifference is never full of wonder.
Indifference is existing rather than living.
Existing without hope is indifference....
Indifference is a crushing bully.
Beyond existence is living with hope.
Hope for better days and true romance.
True romance isn't eternal but it is wonderous.
True romance isn't a fantasy of happiness dependent upon on another human being. True romance comes along when we are happy and being loving. True romance just adds to our life.
When true romance shows up, it may not last long but it is real.
While each moment may not be romantic or enjoyable, each moment is real and counts.
What counts is how much love we give and how we give it.
What counts is how open we are to receiving love.
What counts is loving ourselves so we can love others.
What counts is loving others as we love ourselves.
What counts is how present we are to each moment.
What counts lies in our unique or true calling.
Our true calling is to love. Each of us has a calling of love that manifests uniquely.
Our non-resistance to love is what allow us to carry out that calling.
Our non-resistance to Love is what makes each moment count.
We can choose to unblock ourselves and let love in and let love gush out.
And we can choose to love once romance fades.
Beyond romance, life is about finishing what we start.
Sometimes starting is easy and sometimes it is one of our greatest challenges. Sometimes we start and find every excuse not to finish. Finishing becomes our greatest challenge. When we cannot finish what we desire to complete, it is fear.
For resistance is fear. We fear what our heart wants us to do. The great challenge of resisting....
We resist the romance of our calling....
Beyond romance and resistance there is a limitless fountain of inspiration that some call a muse.
Resistance can take the form of indifference. It seduces us to do everything but start and finish...
It logically says there are other priorities. It says we are eternal beings, so we let "time," become irrelevant!
We must choose to love now, because our physical existence has a beginning and an end.
We can resist and anger our muse or we can surrender to the muse romancing us to finish what we started.
Until then, we let ourselves be romanced by resistance.
It will charm us with the intent of outwitting us.
It distracts us with a quick, easy & cheap fix. It says it is our ally & voice of reason.
If we are willing to see resistance for what it is, then we will face the bully within.
We will realize that we resist the muse by being pushed around by the bully.
Resistance is measured by how hollow one feels after we give in. It paralyzes and keeps us from our true love & calling. It is clever...
Remember resistance is within you! It is our inner bully.
But, what happens when romance passes?
Maybe once romance is gone, all that is left is not
non-resistance but sustainable love.
Love that is free of conditions is sustainable.
Sustainable love is wonderous.
Wonder of being...
Being as we are. As we are we unfold...
Surrendered to the wonder of being....
Being brave to stand up to the bully and surrender to the muse.
We don't give in or give up. We surrender to who we are.
In surrender, we experience who we are.
Who we are is so full of wonder.
Being Love is wonderous.
Journey of courage to love.
Courage to be what we are.
What we are is full of love and wonder.
In wonder what we do is full of love. Out of love we persist. We fall and get back up.
We dance in wonder.
Wonderous dance of being human.
To be human is to be full of wonder.
How have you faced the bully within to feel the wonder of being human?
Are you being romanced by your muse or your crushing resistance?
(The answer lies in how much resistance you feel or how much love you put into your calling)
