– E.E. Cummings
Love. Of all the words in the English language “love” probably has the most meaning, or maybe the most elusive meaning. S0 basic to the soul of each one of us, love becomes the precious essence governing each of our lives. We ask ourselves; how do we find love? How do we share it? Can we maintain it with another person? And at the core of these questions we continue to wrap our thoughts around “what is love”? Constantly trying to answer this question and perhaps hitting a wall more often than not when it comes to finding the answer we ultimately end up taking pleasure and apathy in it’s elusiveness. But what if we change our thought process and perception around this word’s elusiveness and embrace it for what it is – the underlying root and foundational energy of all beings and things around us. Accept love and have faith in it!
Stepping into love we can begin to strip away the typical fears associated with it such as; am I good enough for it? Do I have enough love? Do I give enough of it? Instead of trying to find balance in love and answers to these questions work on stripping these questions from your psyche as if you were taking an eraser to a chalkboard. Start by reminding yourself that love is around you at all times supporting your every step through life. Once we decide to change our perception and choose to step into this faith, love will easily flow to and from every aspect of your life.
