How has it become the norm to so often see loving one another lead to increasing expectation of said love? Say you love me…I say I love you. What now? I would like some more…support, approval, affirmation, validation, consideration. Plus extra fulfillment and excitement with a side of space, sincere understanding, and of course, always with passion. And please, do not forget to call! Work always to please me and we will be bonded. Is there no other way to satisfy our deepest search for union? Our desires are endless but why do we build these around my word that is love? Surely there was purpose to this evolution. These expectations have fueled creation, population, economy and of course the dependency to which we cling for life. But I think we have created and clutched enough as such for now. Maybe now is time to really do love up right. So here it is, the most fundamental of truths, and oh, it hurts and frees to hear it said! We all know it, so hold a hand as we repeat; no one will satisfy me for real, but me. Are we not brave enough to claim what is love, alone? I promise we can do it together. This is the highest form of self responsibility. Please, please do not sign your Self away to another and glorify the sacrifice. Find a little courage to stand up and smile alone. You know how many will love you then? That was a trick, for it does not matter…but yes, you will be loved, so loved. Here you will smile still, unchanged. For outside affection does not give you claim to the actions of another. I accept this understanding is a process of trial and error that may not be rushed. But my goodness, how beautiful love is meant to be. Moments, glances, thoughts and energies, touching briefly, uplifting and intersecting as two paths crisscross entirely surrendered in devotion to the Truth.
There is no place that love does not reside, in you and in every thing. Take a quick little look to see.
