Love is a very tricky thing. Many splendoured, much bejewelled, coated in all sorts of paints. We know love exists, even if we tend to doubt that the people who love us actually do. So in the spirit of empathy, why are we not sharing it a little more freely? What are we afraid of?
We make a lifetime of searching for love, and wonder why it seems so elusive. We dream about what it should be and suffer when it lets us down. Our minds spin fast and furious when we're in love, to the extent that we can't seem to get our heads around anything else. Fast love can be self-absorbing, sucking us into its grip like a maniacal sponge frenzied for a decent meal. When we've got what we wanted we only want more, we want it now, and we won't be able to wait cos the waiting will kill us, we will fall, the fear of falling being so great that we rely on the one we're in love with to understand that, and save us from impending doom.
Hands up if you've never loved like that, and hats off to you.
Is part of the whole mentality of human love reliant upon imagination?
What, after all, is the reality we face when we're faced with someone else's reality?
Let's face it, love is an energy. Love drives everything that isn't fear, and fear is only the polarity of love. We do the things we do through love or through fear, and maybe part of the process is that we have to have both, otherwise reality can't get a grip on itself. As Taylor Swift sang, are we out of the woods? Are we in the clear yet? Good.
We can't lose, we can't win, there's nothing to lose and nothing to win. Love is, it just is, full of questions and answers before questions and loopholes and trickery and deception of the mind. The most powerful energy that drives a life form, that all other creatures take for granted, is one we humans have managed to spin into a creative paradox of journeys and destinations that have no place in the natural world. What have we done? Why have we created such a beast of burden for us to bear?
Watch the video behind this pic - 13 minutes you won't forget. Whether or not the story is real, it speaks in a way that a human being cannot, because a human being is so full of words to be said and left unsaid and what's right and wrong aside from the obvious, because the obvious is to simply look after each other and think what we need to think to keep us afloat. Afloat above the benchmarks of terror, the tidelines of superstition and the bottom lines of commercial and political agendas. We have each other, across the species, across the great divide there's a wide world calling, nestled in a big universe we don't really comprehend. So let's love today, even just a little bit, for someone else might be needing it just as much as we do.
