Ocean of Love

While the term “in love” generally refers to a relationship you are in with somebody else, it shouldn’t; it should rather designate a place where you are. If I am able to be in love with anybody, I must be ready to be in love with everybody. If you are in love, and your life is fragrant, and you are soaring like an eagle, and you feel ecstatic…the relationship is with yourself. You are discovering. You are beautiful. You are learning about who you are; not the other, but yourself. Because this is the journey that is necessary in order to love somebody else. I cannot love you if I do not know who is loving you. It is through establishing my own self worth that I am able to understand, and love your worth. I must first learn about love before I can extend it to others. They want people to believe, as many do, that love grows on trees; that you can just pick it, like a fruit; that it is simply there for the taking, and all you have to do is find it. “Being in love” literally means you are in love; like in a swimming pool. You are engulfed in a spirit of love. And it is this spirit that determines how you will relate to the world around you. In other words, it is the love in you that meets with the love in others. The Romeo and Juliet concept is that love is created by two people, but this is a farce. Love is not something that people create together, it is an appreciation of one another. The harmony or chemistry is not in between two selves, it is in each self. That’s what the misconception is, people keep looking for love where it isn’t. If you look into your heart for love and it isn’t there, can you borrow it from your friend’s heart? It may be possible to experience their love, or maybe you can learn from it, but you cannot have it. If you want it, you must originate your own way. I know this doesn’t sound traditionally romantic, but it actually is because there is no romance more exciting than your own. You know why? Because a romance cannot be exciting if you aren’t home. It is via that very intimate walk we are taking with ourselves that energizes the relationships we have with others; it is the door that introduces you to your beloved. But when it does, if it isn’t open, or if you aren’t open, then you will not be able to swim together. The swimming pool is there, but you cannot enter because the door is closed. So you see, the problem is not love. Love is waiting for you. But you must open the door so the rejoicing can begin; you must believe in the celebration. As soon as the celebration begins, the celebrated will be delivered. And you will swim like never before. Life will flow through you so magically that you will finally know; you will know that love is your very bone and marrow, and always has been. it is your intrinsic nature. Love is housed in both the fragility and strength of your being, balanced more beautifully than the scent of every flower; timeless and exquisite. dwp
