The Garden Hose
Trying something new today, there is an audio version of the blog today. You can access it by clicking on the picture here!
I have this sprayer attached to the garden hose. It’s magic. I turn the water on and nothing comes out. You would think there was no water. It could lay there for days and you’d never know the water had been turned on. I wonder about that.
With the sprayer attached, turning on the water has no real effect. Something else has to happen. I have to push the lever to let the water flow.
We are love. Infinite, powerful forces of light with sprayers attached. We move through our moments, unaware we’ve been turned on already.
You arrive without a sprayer – turned on full force. We love babies because the love that they are just gushes out of their eyes, their smile, and their wiggly little self. They are unaware of the sprayer.
The sprayer is gradually constructed with rules, requirements, conditions, faults. Judgments create intricate sprayers. There are some so complicated, a key is required to even get to the lever. Others have their lever cleverly disguised. Some of us stick our levers right out in front – begging you to push them. Only in rare cases have we made it to adulthood without a sprayer.
Imagine a world without them. Love and light flowing freely – uninhibited. This is what awaits us when we love ourselves. This is who we are. We are source energy. The sprayer is this construct/body/mind/ego self we’ve created. It was us who installed the levers and placed them oh so carefully.
Feel good now. No waiting is necessary for agape. With a tender heart, see your sprayer and locate your lever. Now imagine a bottle a Gorilla Glue in your hands. It only takes a drop. Place it underneath the lever and on the surface of your sprayer and press these two together. Hold it firmly in place.
This will take awhile. Your mind is objecting already. “I can’t just love.” “I have all this pain in the way.”
Let it go. You’ve found the lever and the glue – your love can flow without condition.
What does that look like? It looks like – “Yes!” “Sure, I’ll go with you!” “I can help!” “I love you!” “I feel really good!” “I am okay.” It is a quiet and constant flow of positive; positive thoughts, successful outcomes, ½ full glasses and peace.
You see, you weren’t supposed to have a sprayer. You arrived without one. You are light. You are here to do the one thing light does. This is your purpose, to be what you are. You are a being of light. That’s what light does, it eradicates the dark.
It is only this sprayer that is stopping you now. You’ve found your lever, let’s hold them down together and love.
We are the ones we are waiting for.
