Where Is Love

Jun. 22, 2006 at 12:54 AM

When I spend my quiet evening listening to the instruments of music that lightly feather my mind and softly blow the mist from my heart, I know love….

When I open my eyes for no reason from a deep sleep and see the sun rising, I know Love.

When I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry and I see my friends look at me with a warm astonishment…I certainly…know Love.

When I feel silence caress and soothe me and I feel God’s grace upon me for no good reason…
I must know Love…

When I see a random act of kindness not intended to be seen, I know Love, no doubt…

When time whispers to me that, without it…everything would happen all at once and hence…ensues chaos …I feel….Love from God for the gift of Time.

When I ache to be held and fall asleep in the arms of a man I love…I realize that I must already…Know Love….to recognize the want of it, and the feeling of missing It.

When I hurt profoundly for the pain of another….
I know Love….
When I read words from a persons heart…not fancy nor poetic….just…the words from a heart…I once again, recognize Love…

When I cry….and only know that I can feel…again I know there is Love….

When someone puts me…before them-self…ah.. now there I know…Love…

Even when I ache to give it…again I must tenderly smile with the sorrow…for then I know that I’ve known…Love.

When I can let go of bitterness and forgive..I know Love.

When the sunlight plays upon the leaves of a tree and the breeze rustles them softly….if I can be still in that moment and hear the music of life…again, I know Love…

When I cry at the sight of a simple and beautiful thing…there it is…Love…

When I see a mother touch the face of her child….in that moment I see and know….Love…and when I see a father grow still and quiet, a moment of awe as he absorbs the blinding adoration of his child…there it is, still…Love…

When my fingertips touch the skin of an apple and I close my eyes and smile…again I know Love…

When I look at the eyes of the elderly as they Remember… in the quiet moments…there…is Love…

When I watch the snowflakes drift in the clean breath of the cold that carries them….there again is Love….

Even though I ache to give of the Love within my heart to the One who aches to have it….I again realize….there IS…Love…

Love given, whether through a smile, an act of kindness; when selfishness is not an option…within all of that lies….Love.

Love IS patient
Love IS Kind
Love knows no Boundaries to Exist Within…indeed, Love only exists to give of itself, to heal, to nurture, to swim in the hearts and minds and souls of others…to be exchanged, expressed, demonstrated, and to bind us together through its Gift…

So we seek these things…whether we call it happiness, satisfaction, fulfillment, even LUST…what we seek ultimately…is indeed Love.

Love is the only act, the only emotion, the only Gift…that I know of that feeds…indeed even exists upon the giving of itself.

Without LOVE………..how would the world appear, I wonder. Gray skies; no blues, greens, mauves, magentas, chartreuses, pinks, purples…..depth, dimension, or purpose.

I choose to live my life loving…in every possible healthy way I can….even if I never..ever think I’m..receiving it back…as long as I can give it, I am rich…and…
I will know…LOVE.

Take my hand and let us be still and see the Love given to us freely by the Universe….living within our eyes. Let us swim in one another’s riches that no money can ever purchase or hoard.

Love doesn’t Judge others….so let us try to be kind and remember that the greatest of all things is Love.
I may not know “who” this God is…but I can grasp that God liekly translates to Love.
God IS Love.
God is the Universe.
The Universe is within Us.
We are the carriers of Love.
I pray that Love’s light, shines through my heart and mind and spirit. May I yield to a Loving Knowledge beyond our grasp of understanding. If I might learn to be Still and listen with …Love.

When I see our Elderly taking a walk together and how very quiet they are in one another’s presence…ah…so there it is again…Love.

Love is not Hard….or Cruel…or Sneaky or Deceitful.
At the end of every day, I must look at my own face in the mirror and ask if I knew Love today…either in giving or receiving. I pray the scales are always tipped in favor of me Giving.
In doing so, I once again know Love and Love will come back to me in whatever form or shape or sight or sound or word or act.

May I seek out wisdom and keep my tongue, yet laugh easily, cry without shame, and bond with every sentient being I come across in some manner or expression of Love…..
It may be my only chance to express it and allow it to be expressed through me If I understand Nothing else, may I always understand how to Love.
So there again, we are Love Generators as long we open our minds and hearts to the most important of all things.
When I see the things I try to capture may I see the most love filled inspiring view and share that sense with you.
With every capture of an image, my hope is that i’ve served Love, felt Love, and ultimately, shared Love…..Pay it forward…Love.
