Love simply is and flows potently, clearly in streams and rivers cleared of wreckage and debris.
Strolling on a sidewalk with a son or laughing through a store with a daughter, weeping with a friend, discovering a wild strawberry in a glance of reflective vision, knowing the resonance of the Divine in the sweetest slice of time…all ripe experiences, opportunity for love to be every breath of moment.
It is in these moments we can know ourselves, be with our being-ness in awareness of the layers of feeling and the circuits of thinking. Are we tense? Are we holding the breath of the soul, waiting for the other shoe to fall? Are we poised against attack? Are we perpetually thirsting, feeling a draining of all forces as soon as reciprocal pleasure unfolds, awakening a craving nothing can fill? Or is there simple receptivity and spontaneity, nothing forced or contrived or even just desperately good intentioned? Is there delight?
What is pulsing in your being? If you can know these humming layers and circuits, you can move closer to that spirit, the soaking sense and experience of permeating love, the mother and father heart of God, the internal dance between Bride and Bridegroom, unity of Being beckoning and greeting, hugging and beseeching at every turn.
