FAITH FORWARD FRIDAY: ALLOW LOVE TO BE LOVE

I am finding that all I have to do is stand in the place that love dwells and let love do the rest. When true love is present, all that it asks, is that you open your heart. Accept the gift and then share it.

I am standing in that place where love dwells. I would have missed it if I were in a different place in my heart and mind and spirit. I was not ready last year or the year before. Everything in my life brings me to this moment. The stars are aligned and I am standing here taking it all in without fear and reservation. I asked. I received.

I do think of tomorrow but it does not over shadow my right now. This is a place of happiness right now. I am feeling strong and loved and focused and happy. Happy being the new order of the day.

We must allow love to be love. Love does not ask us to define, spin or defend. It only asks that we allow it to dwell, grow and spread. How divine. Love is not illusory, it is a living, breathing activity...a state of being. I love my kids. I love my friends. I love being alive. It is all love. I know there are those who will compartmentalize love for the sake of defining the differences of love of family, lovers, friends, objects. But I say Love IS. All Love is love. I will say our expressions of love is truly what people are really referring to when they say the love for their children is different than love of a lover. All love is love.

The real key for me is allowing love to be love and not try to make it into something I want from my ego's perspective. Love is about being humble and gracious and open to the spirit of another.

The Love Story continues...

Always asking the question: WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU WANT?

WHO I AM? I've never been able to describe myself as it seems I'm constantly changing.

Too often we think we know what we want and need and manipulate things and situations... thus creating "love". But as you said, and I so agree, LOVE IS.

Awesome.
