Lessons in love everywhere.
What are my lessons in love?
Many lessons, one truth.
The truth is simple.
The truth is powerful!
Love is the truth.
Therefore, love is uncomplicated and powerful.
The truth withstands time.
Maybe now, I can see the deeper truth when others seem to be what they really are not.
Can I love past, the appearance of non-love?
Can I see the simple truth?
Can I hear past the complicated deceit?
Can I feel the powerful truth?
Being honest with myself is a great starting point….
I close my eyes to see, hear and feel the beautiful truth.
It is about feeling my way through rather than past the thoughts, sensations and distractions, and ultimately the pain.
I can dive as deep as I am willing to go.
Sometimes, I find pain too intense and I float back up.
On the surface it is no less anxiety provoking....
The deeper I go, the greater the treasures I can bring back.
I like my depth.
Must I emerge?
Yes, a soft voice murmurs.
Let go and open your eyes. The world... awaits.
Now, can I cultivate the beauty of my universe within in the world asleep to the truth?
Can I remember that perhaps what is out there is also a reflection of some part in me that still needs love in the world of illusions?
Or am I, so evolved that, I am no longer humble enough to learn?
Would I still be here on this planet if I had nothing more to learn or teach?
Let me remember that I teach by how I am in the world....
The truth is simple. The truth may be uncomfortable at first, but it is always the truth.
And it is always accessible...
I have to be willing, to be honest about, how much I want the truth?
A truth, that if fully embraced, acutally liberates me, to be fearlessly loving.
Can I see through the non-loving behaviors of my past as there to show me that I could still choose love?
What if those acts that I feel hurt me deeply, were the most loving lessons?
Can I love my past? Can I make peace with the past as it arises in the present?
The truth is not complicated. So why complicate it?
Can I be real when the truth shows up?
The truth does set us free when we let go....
The answer is and always will be: love
To be continued....
