“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” ― Pablo Neruda
What do I know of love?… I ask myself..… what is it to truly Love another human being? Am I experiencing Love or attachment? Love, or a need to be validated by another? Love, or lust? Love or dependency? Love or familiarity? Love or loneliness abated? Love or feelings of safety and security? Love can be mistaken as any of the above natural human needs and distortions. So, how do you know what is real? How can you know the difference, and what is actually true for you? Are you willing to look deep inside your heart for the answers? How vulnerable are you willing to be so that you can be met by Love’s treasures? Are you willing to settle for less than honest, audacious, incredibly courageous consuming love? I am not!
Your soul knows that Love encompasses all. It can be no other way as I see it. Love is the source of life itself and why we are here. Love is a willingness to open up your heart and hear another,….accepting, forgiving and choosing to go to that place inside of you where only innocence and surrender exists and share that with another human being.
Love is fire and passion burning to be expressed. Love is surrendering and innocence. Love is the battleground as I allow myself to be utterly destroyed while becoming even more whole and complete than ever before. Love is the playground where we celebrate in joyous unity and complete abandonment of “self” as we know it. Love is seeing myself reflected in your eyes and knowing that I have touched God.
We are here to rediscover our true authentic nature, which can only be acknowledged through Love’s gifts. There is a wisdom and knowingness of the recognition of another soul beyond what the human mind can conceive, and love opens the door.
I invite you to please share my journey of awakening… as described in my book “Hugging Trees in the Dark”…Finding the Courage to Free the Heart…where through the pain of losing it all, I discovered myself by choosing love first. All my love (what else?), and gratitude….RJ
