What is love? What is your personal definition of love and what does it mean to you? Where in your life do you feel the presence of unconditional love? How do you show love to yourself? Where and how can you show more unconditional love in your life?
These questions help us to take a step back and become aware of our true thoughts and feelings surrounding love. At our very cores, in our most natural form, we are love. Part of the reason love feels so good is because we are allowing our inner selves to be seen in it’s most vulnerable form. When we allow our ideals about love to be shifted and skewed by another’s perspective we find that the love in our lives does not feel fulfilling. We feel as if we are lacking love, or we feel as though there is struggle or work associated to the love in our life.
Truth is, these feelings of lack and unfulfillment, struggle and work are illusions we’ve allowed ourselves to believe through altering our own personal essence to be shifted to fit or be boxed within another’s.
Remember Love comes in all shapes and sizes,
through daily monotony and surprises
Love is the connecting link to all that is life
not just a family, or husband and wife
Love is what we are in our purest of forms
True love never ever expects us to conform
Unconditional Love is the main ingredient
in our quest for inner and outer peace
Which is why it is so important to make sure
it is something we always practice and never cease.
So this February, as we begin to see
THe Reds & Hearts
HUgs & Kisses
While recalling those chick flicks and stereotypes that portray
The feelings behind a new Mr. & Mrs.
It’s important to remember that love is more than that….
Whether it’s seen as:
A deep rooted emotion
or An enticing game
that when sparked has the potential
to ignite an everlasting flame
Roses & Candy
Dinner & Dates
Are nice but not always needed
in the union of two inevitable fates
which usually appears as a deeply felt attraction
Is as unique and special as the two souls exchanging it
A Secret language between two
and an irreplaceable bond amongst the one you love and you
I hope this portrays to you that even in all the fluff, superficial, and material forms our society pushes into LOVE on this Holiday….that it is more than that. That while gestures and gifts can be comforting and make you feel good, the BOND you share, in true UNCONDITIONAL love is all you need.
So RELAX…take the pressure off your relationship today (Even if you are choosing to HONOR the one you have with yourSELF) and immerse fully into the unique connections your lover and you share. It’s IRREPLACEABLE, one of a kind…and whether it stands the test of time matters not; for on this day, in this moment you are in LOVE. You are enamored by their presence. You want to EXPERIENCE life with them by your side. In all reality at the CORE of your love it matters not what surrounds you.
The GREATEST thing about love and being in it is…when it comes right down to it, it’s a UNION of you and your partner and that is all you NEED. Like the famous Beatles Song:
“All you Need is Love”
So go out today…and every day really….and…
~BE LOVE ~
let it flow freely through all that you are
~Be Open to the Love that Seeks You~
allow it to find you and wrap you in it’s warmth
for all the presence of love in your life
At the deep dungeony depths of our heart’s desires
All we truly want is to LOVE and to BE loved
in ALL forms.
your HEARTS wishes
and make every MOVEMENT today
from a place of LOVE
