FEBRUARY 2017: Language of Love

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere, they're in each other all along. ~ Rumi

Where do your true passions lie? What and/or who makes your soul soar, causes you to lose track of time, brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment to your life? What gets you excited to be alive? What melts your heart, brings out emotion? What are you avoiding? How are you experiencing love? How do you love?

The answer to these questions can help you discover more about the quantity and quality of love you are allowing in your life. Many of us are very stingy with our love. We constantly withhold love from ourselves and others. We think that in order to discern right from wrong that we must cast judgment and withhold love in order to correct ourselves. Nothing could be further from the truth. For it is by facing and embracing what we are, all of it, that the whole picture is revealed to us and we turn the impetus of our journey from one of force, to one of power: The Power of Love.

Human beings have a deep and wide intelligence that far outstrips the thinking mind. Even scientists have come to identify what they call a host of intelligences within an individual. There is mathematical genius, artistic and creative genius and even now there is exploration into the intelligence of the heart and body itself! The heart has an electro magnetic field of resonance which is thousands of times stronger than that which is conducted by thought alone, giving new meaning to phrases like, "put your heart into it" or "my heart wasn't in it" and "I really took that to heart". But how do we grow in our ability to love?

The answer to this question, as so many poets and mystics have revealed, is potentially why we are even here in the flesh - to experience the many faces and facets of the Creator, to intimately reveal to ourselves who and what we are through this knowledge and experience and to create something new as we allow the alchemy of our passions to forge us into autonomous beings of light who can CHOOSE so very many ways to express true love and reveal the Light. For when the Light is revealed through the stories of our lives, we are able to see the purpose of living as we continually discover and lean into what really matters to us. For without love, little else truly matters. As Rumi says, "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

There is some kiss we want with our whole lives, the touch of spirit on the body. ~ Rumi

Without an understanding of myth or religion, without an understanding of the relationship between destruction and creation, death and rebirth, the individual suffers the mysteries of life as meaningless mayhem alone.” - Marion Woodman
