For This LightHearted Being, Valentine’s is I-LightHeart-You day. 😍💖 The discovery of everlasting all-enduring Love beneath all and within All is our greatest gift of Love to receive and share fully. The divine romance plays out in all our interactions with Life in all form, shapes, colors, sizes…species. Perhaps we’ll soon realize everyday is I Love You day: the Other that IS Mine Own LightHearted Being. We will live the lover’s dance of longing and fulfillment in the Heart of radiant Truth within which we live, which lives in and as us, which we are.
Our Belovèd never denies us, yet there are playful games of hide and seek. We do so love to chase and be caught in passionate embrace of re-Union dissolving utterly in ecstasies of surrender unto blissful union where we are nothing but This Love.
Let us find where our Belovèd is hiding in the here and now. Let us be found where we are hiding and be caught up in ever-loving arms. This incredible immaculate love affair of profound intimacy is what Life is. We can experience it all day and night if we but will give way completely wholly unto This Love. Right now, this moment is the one in which we have to receive and give. All time is within it, there is no yesteryear or tomorrow or an hour from now. Just This NowHere.
Oh, you don’t know how? You don’t know how to receive and give so impossibly? What if that’s not true? What if it’s not hard or confusing but actually super natural? What if you just relax and not know how but let it come to you? What if you discover being love is not what you thought? What if you live a romance that’s inconceivable and that you are conceived immaculately of every moment? No, can’t wrap your head around it? Don’t try. Doesn’t work. Just Be. Let yourself be had, let Love you are have Its way with you. Recognize when where how and who/what you do care for, deeply. It’s actually Essence seeing, recognizing, loving Itself appearing in and as the non-Other you see and appreciate, especially without conditions. Just take some time to notice how Love is already at work in you, in your life and through you.
This only Is. Whatever we may believe about self and other and experience therefrom, This Love Only Is. It’s time to “put away childish things” and go “where angels fear to tred” “boldly go where no one has gone before” truly enjoy Being adored and adoring, the Adoration. We have to give way so completely there’s no one left. We have to give forth so thoroughly and totally there’s no one left. Go for broke, for the ultimate. It’s astonishing!
It’s free. Doesn’t cost anything but an investment of time and energy to find right within us the most wonderful fulfillment—even amid great hardship we can experience in life in our world as it currently appears, and people are. Paradoxically strange, the weirdest, yet so true. We’ve all experienced it at some point though may not have quite gotten what it was. It’s because This is ever-available, always Here always Now. Life in our world has created a situation in which it can feel quite foreign, absent—remember hide and seek? The pain, the anguish gets washed away. Really, it does. I speak from direct and most profound experience. I cannot speak of the Truth without having found it everywhere in my experience, hard won it is.
This is not a pie-in-the-sky romance—it’s nitty gritty, down and dirty where we really live. It endures the greatest hardship, the worst of the worst. We endure even when we are totally broken by life’s events. We may Be in bleeding torment totally feeling forsaken, but … the one experiencing torment and the One who IS are One and the same! Sometimes it’s only in those moments we discover the Real Unity a comfortable life cannot reveal. It’s the broken hallelujah. Without being utterly broken open how do we know who suffers, who endures, who carries on, who loves? It’s a hard road but a worthy one for Such as You.
Ask and give thanks you can receive, open and open more to receive the limitless gifts of Love. It’s a principle of true nature, an actual law of creation, Someone once elucidated by saying, “ask and it shall be given, knock and it shall be opened unto you.” Ask, knock, open, yield, receive, arise, give forth over and over in This romance. It’s been so true in my life and the gratitude Here borders on the boundless. It’s Love which Is boundless, free and everywhere all ways.
May all eyes, hearts and souls, brain bodies and minds, be open to see, receive, give way utterly, and share the bounty of endless Love. What is essential is invisible to the eye, but is Everywhere present always.
Another happy LightHearted day to you from the Adoring One, thine own Belovèd.
