Love is not merely "romantic" ... And it is not kept for only relationships with others. Love is a dynamic field of potential where ANYTHING is possible.
My five year old asked me yesterday what is inside our bodies. "A ghost?" And I didn't necessarily have a definitive answer for him ... One that he'd understand, and that is "truth."
YOU are the agent, the instrument, the means that expresses this unique spark of the one source of which we are all a part of.
Here's what I've learned through it though: What's MOST important, is to truly see MYSELF.
That's the awareness behind EVERYTHING. Every moment. Every contact. Every thought. Every feeling. It is all one.
When we each come into greater peace, it affects ALL of us. We're connected. We're ONE energy ... each of us is significant and can make a difference.
You can become invisible ... so the only thing that is seen in your expression of beingness, is the Light of all that is. And in that invisibility there is peace, and power and purpose.
What I know now is that my heart is one with all things, my energy is part of that universal wholeness and I can't change that fact. That means that what I DO can't change that fact, what I SAY can't change that fact, and what you think can't change that fact.
LOVE fills the void that is threatening all of us. Love does it. More violence doesn't do it. More anger won't help. More separation and ugliness and littleness and fear will not bring what we, as a human family, are so desperately "calling for." We need more love to be extended. More patience. More kindness. More thoughtfulness. More humility, more hope, more unity, more faith. These are what bring healing and these are how we fill the needs that as a society we have.
The worth of a soul is not defined and counted among the "worthy" by anything that you see here in this place we call earth. The worth of a soul is not FROM here and therefore cannot be defined in earthly terms ... it is unchangeable, it is infinite, it is perfectly wholly worthy at all times, in all things, and in all places. No. Matter. What.
You cannot gauge your pathway based upon another's. You cannot compare yourself to your neighbor and think that is the way to know whether or not you're "rightly" living ... the rightness of living comes in following the energy of your soul and the light within YOU. If it is joy, peace, and love to you? It is the way to your divine potential. --- That is it. That is the simple test ... the fruit of YOUR journey bringing you expansion.
I believe that as we focus on unity and let go of the need to control and make everyone fit into the box we believe they should fit into, we will bring about a healing and a change to the world that will cleanse and replenish and lift up and lighten and brighten and strengthen and make way for peace.
