(Continued from Beauty in Flow) So now, I practice. I look through this image into the life it represents and I love her with all my heart’s capacity to appreciate. Yeah, it’s kind of strange and peculiar, to talk of such; I may be crazy as the nuts falling from that hickory tree just top of the ridge-line there, but it seems to me that the more I practice the better I get; the more I love her and revel in her beauty, the more I feel her loving me. I didn’t expect this when I started; I’m not certain I much thought about it one way or the other. It’s in her nature to be easy to love and she loves so easily. Now I’m playing around with an odd notion and I wonder if she’s the one who put it there in my heart. I’m wondering if it might be true that she is a part of me. I look inside me pretty regularly and I seem to find her there, so much so that I don’t worry about it. I once looked to find her when I needed what she gave me. It’s like she taught me something though. It’s like she taught me how to look for her inside me only when I was ready to give away what she gave me. The more I give, the better I learn to trust that she’s always going to be there in me as a part of me. And lately I seem to be bumping into people who are having the same sort of experience. There may be something to this…..
