My posts are often humorous… but, just like in the book it’s good to go deeper…

~~~~

Did you ever hold someone and just ‘know’?

Don’t ask me to put any words around the knowing…which is ineffable…

Greater talents than I have attempted this for centuries…

With glorious yet inadequate prose…

 

Love cannot be captured in this way…

 

Or at all really…

 

I am learning a lot about love these days… and loss…

 

That attachment and love are often confused… yet are actually polarities…

That true love never possesses… only propels…

That every attachment is merely a contraction…

While love always expands.

 

Always…

 

Love is complete…

 

And like the sun it shines of its own accord…

 

Love is ultimate freedom…

It is the wind beneath an eagle’s wings…

Tis' the first breath of babies… and the last sigh of the dying…

 

In stillness, I saw great love as a butterfly…

She was beautiful…

 

The Inner Voice gently guided me…

 

“If you chase her, she will try to elude you… for she cannot be held…

If you catch her, she would be wounded and rendered flightless…

If you hold her too tightly, she will be crushed and die…

 

Seek not the illusion of ownership…

 

Instead, stand in the bright light of your Infinite Being…

The Great Essential Sun upon your face…

With your Eternal Heart radiating limitless joy…

Extend an open hand… an invitation…

As a safe place for her to land and rest from the demons of the world…

 

Give thanks for the time she shares with you…

 

Whether for a moment, or an all-too-brief lifetime…

For what is time between soul mates

But a shadow passing momentarily in front of the Infinite Radiance of Being…

 

Give thanks for her Grace…

For in her Presence the hole in all men vanishes and is filled…

Overflowing in warmth and bliss where once only tears existed…

 

Honor the gift and grieve its passing…

 

But only briefly…

For soon new life will grow abundantly from the ashes of your sorrows…

Love, like the butterfly, is transformative... and everlasting…

Let her go and let it be…

For she will always come again~
