Love in a Different Light
It’s Valentine’s Day, for those of you who are from another planet. Hearts, flowers, candy, cards.
But let’s expand the frame a bit. How about if – just for the moment – we pretend this is the day for pure, unbounded love.
And let’s posit, for this moment, that pure love is the absolutely wonderful feeling that you are – right now – just fine as you are. That being alive is an astonishing gift, and that simply breathing is a miracle. Let’s suppose that the source of that love is not another person, or how that person feels about you, or what he or she does for you. Let’s suppose that the source of that love is within you, is the energy that sustains you at this very moment.
And finally, let’s suppose that at the instant you’re aware of the warmth of that love shining, vibrating, bubbling up inside you, there’s no room for fear.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
