Yesterday my youngest daughter leapt ahead another year and her birthday was filled with smiles, love and meetings of similar minds. During one of the conversations with new people never before met, I learned that love, as an energy, is ambivalent, caring not for the welfare of the person entrapped by it, nor for the consequences of their actions or pursuit of their dreams. Whether we think of life in terms of goals, or wins, losses or failures, love has no time to play games - we do that for ourselves. Like fear, love will find a chink to pour through and its power is only as great as the will to which it attaches itself. We choose what to do, to a degree, but ultimately we are travelling through a lifetime of finite proportions on a wave that never ends, and the current that carries us is a matter of priority only to the part of ourselves that demands to be fulfilled.
Until non-locality became a factual cause in my reality, my faith in it was shaky at times. Yet the quantum trail, once set upon you, finds ways to refuse to let you go. Synchronicity and signs, crossroads and cul-de-sacs all become part of your personal Universe and it's up to you which flow you go with. Choosing love over fear has to be a wise move, and the world is geared up now more than ever to challenge our ability to do so. Where we will find ourselves as a result of our actions is indeterminable thanks to Uncertainty, but we need to rest assured that we are far from alone on this journey. There's a part of the self that has no concept of time, that doesn't change with age, that doesn't fully understand the ravages of mortality because finity is not real, fundamentally, in the terms of life that the Universe causes to exist. This part of the self is the one to trust, for it remains untouched by the forces of experience and remains instead connected to the force of physics, the facts of the matter, the current situation and the present we are given perpetually to open with our hearts.
The mouse that roams over the pictures will find the source of these inspirations...
