Where would we be without love? Who would we be if we did not know love? What would our life be like if it was void of love?
What is love and why does it feed us and sustain us on every level?
Love is life!
It is found in every moment of life, even in the moments that appear to lack love so deeply… love is present waiting in the shadows. It is that soft flickering light .. a tiny pin prick at times when the dark feels all consuming .. but it is there always.. patiently waiting for us to recognise it.
Love is that whisper of a breeze that curls around our bare legs… it says come dance with me beloved.. shh listen.. life is playing our tune.
Love is that feeling of wonderful playtime when the muddy puddle beckons us to jump in it. It comes as the ‘inner child’ .. it says play with me… let yourself free for a moment and jump in! Love is fun, love is laughter, love is silly, crazy at times …. Love is Freedom!!
Love is that softest wave that connects our heart to our own child, it floats between us both, it wraps itself around us and our precious wee one and is heard upon the mother’s lullaby, felt in the strong protective arms, the soft reassuring voice.. the gentle smile of the deepest affection.
Love is that look, that touch, those words, the thoughts…. the beautiful energy held between two lovers. That giddy excitement that passes between the two and is felt on every level. It is found moving the passion to great heights, it is felt in the lovers shared whisper, it is known deeply through the gentle, soft stroke, the exploring lips, the deeply connected hug.
Love comes the moment two very old friends reunite and shows itself on the wide smiles beaming in their joy of recognition, as if no time has passed at all, their hearts open and love flows freely.
Love is that feeling that fills our heart when we spy the most beautiful flower, or stand for a moment on the calmest of nights as the moon’s beams dance on the ocean surface for us… and our heart dances too!
In those moments when we are aware that our heart is singing …. it is love letting us know of our deep connection to a world full of beauty .. and that the reality is, all is very well in our world.
Love says … take my hand beloved for I see you, I know you, I touch you, I hear you… Feel me, believe in me, open to me.
In feeling me within you, in viewing life through my eyes, in touching the world through my knowing .. you step into the extraordinary beauty contained within your heart, held within your deepest memory… you connect to yourself on the highest level of who you are, on the deepest level of life .. and move into the expansiveness of the universal heart of all that is.
I am waiting beloved one… I have been waiting for a long time.. but I am patient and I will wait for however long you take to come home to me.. for I am love … I AM.. YOU!
