Love is recognition of truth. Love is a witnessing of that divine spark that is you. Love is a remembering. It is a remembering from where you spring. Within each piece of life there resides a seed. It is love.
There are some you will encounter and they are the gardeners – shining light and sprinkling water they help your love to grow. You will seek to be around these beings as when you are with them, you feel nourished.
There are others who seem to squash your seed of love before it ever blossoms. They are more challenging than nurturing. Here are some of your greatest teachers. In their presence, you come to understand how strong your love is and what you are capable of. Without them, you would never have known.
Just as each seed prefers specific conditions in which to flourish, so do each of us. The soil, the light, the temperature and location all have an impact on the eventual plant. Each appears different – a tomato is not a water lily, yet both began as seeds.
Love is like that. The expression, the feeling, the look, the sound, the place of love is as varied as we are.
The possibility for love is present in every seed – there are none of us unlovable. The definition of love cannot be spoken or written, it must be breathed.
You know love. I cannot tell you when or where or who or how you will know, but to know is your reason for being.
Against all odds, love emerges. It is that inner light we hope will brighten the room. We wish to find it in each other and come to finally understand that it is not there. Missed chances, failed relationships, lost loves are the stories we all share.
We’ve been looking in all the wrong places. Love isn’t found in another, but reflected there. It is the reflection of our own heart. When it is love that you feel for you, you will again and again feel it in each reflection.
Love is who you are. This is what you have come to do. We are rich, poor, healthy, sick, weak, or strong – this physical life offers up numerous opportunities to love anyway. Just love. You are the only one there is of you. This is it. The time is now.
Look into your own eyes. Fall in love. It is a fearless thing to do. Without reason and holding nothing back, just love.
Then, having done so, look around. You will see a world of love seeds, just waiting for your light so that they too can blossom.
You are the one we are waiting for.
