Violence is like rot in a mighty oak, slowly eating the tree from the inside out, depriving it of it nutrients, until even slightest breeze will bring it crashing down; violence rots the mind and spirit of a man, as where violence is committed LOVE cannot be and deprived of the Soul’s nourishment that LOVE brings, neither can we… is man to now beware the breeze?
“If you and I are having a single thought of violence or hatred against anyone in the world at this moment, we are contributing to the wounding of the world.” ~ Deepak Chopra
True happiness like true LOVE is unconditional. True happiness is to find equal joy in both the sun and rain, in life and in death, always ready to dance and see the cause for celebration in either…
“Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.” ~ Omar Khayyam
With purest intention hug someone, anyone (be they willing of course) let your heart touch theirs, feel them come to the same rhythm, the same beat, lose any sense of me to the moment, feel yourself slip beyond space and time; surrendered now you are to the singularity, Infinity. In that now heart to heart embrace you experience the oneness that is LOVE eternal, that is what you are, that is what life needs to thrive, to be…
“Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.” ~ Albert Einstein
The king or queen who leads from LOVE lives to serve those who have chosen to follow; he or she, their joyful champion. While the king or queen who leads from fear survives only to have those who are forced to follow serve them; he or she, their miserable tyrant.
One who leads from LOVE soars on the wings of Angels…
One who leads from fear crawls on the bellies of maggots, forcing even the poor maggots to carry their quivering load.
True leaders out of LOVE, live to serve, all that is life.
“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” ~ Lao Tzu
LOVE makes no distinctions of beauty, no exceptions of class, no judgments of righteousness; LOVE has no velvet rope, it rolls out no red carpet. LOVE sees all as very important persons and celebrities; in love all are stars and no star shines brighter. LOVE’s purpose is pure, LOVE’s purpose is life and all is of greatest value to the Infinity that is life, to the truth that is LOVE.
While a king maybe needed to lead, the farmer is needed to feed the king, each serving life’s purpose; each doing what each does best. One in truth and in fact no more or less important than the other; for without the king the body is headless and without food for the body there is no reason for a head. It takes both the king and the farmers purpose to be founded in LOVE, for whole being to thrive; if founded in something other, then it is neither the king or the farmer that alone dies, but the entire being.
“Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.” ~ Italian Proverb
On the lush lips of LOVE my soul slumbers in timeless bliss; the kiss of life. While the body rests not, embraced by fear, being slowly swallowed by the looming shadow of ever present death; death the brain has dreamt as permanent end and not the kiss from God to life next, always it is.
Immortality is only the acceptance of your truest lover’s kiss away…
“How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.” ~ Victor Hugo
Your heartbeat is my heartbeat
Your breath is my breath
Your life is my life
Your death is my death
Your smile is my smile
Your tear is my tear
Your love is my love
Your fear is my fear
Destiny ever entwined
All is one, one is all
Together we have risen
Together we shall fall…
“WE two boys together clinging,
One the other never leaving,
Up and down the roads going, North and South excursions making,
Power enjoying, elbows stretching, fingers clutching,
Arm’d and fearless, eating, drinking, sleeping, loving.
No law less than ourselves owning, sailing, soldiering, thieving,
Misers, menials, priests alarming, air breathing, water drinking, on
the turf or the sea-beach dancing,
Cities wrenching, ease scorning, statutes mocking, feebleness
Fulfilling our foray.”
~ Walt Whitman
To forsake LOVE is to commit suicide by heartbreak and fear is the razor that cuts you open, leaving your spirit to bleed; is this to be the chosen fate of man, to die loveless, heartbroken, blade in hand?
“Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.” ~ Kahlil Gibran
Gather this moment your loved ones; the warmth of the summer sun is fading into Fall’s alchemy, turning green leaves to golden dust. And from the decay of autumn, rises Winter’s moon; the brown of earth now still, sleeping beneath blankets of December white. Seek your shelter from the savage storms to follow; in one another’s embrace comforted. Until in the wet light of spring burst you forth; seeds sprouting, life renewed. Freed by LOVE, to greet and frolic in the amber rays of June days again.
Remembering it is only the trials of the illusion of seasons that change, the truth of our need of LOVE to flourish, thrive and grow cannot and forever never will; cycles of life nurtured in the womb of Infinity…
“We would rather be ruined than changed;
We would rather die in our dread
Than climb the cross of the moment
And let our illusions die.”
Inside the heart of even the most evil hateful man there is LOVE or they would not be, our job as the faithful servants of LOVE’s eternal flame is to find that ember of LOVE that smoldering ash inside every being and fan it until LOVE’s flame rages within them, like an inferno, once more…
Hate is but the beacon of beings in distress, calling from the shadow, to bring them from their fear in which they have become lost, home to LOVE.
“Love those you hate you.” ~ Leo Tolstoy
