“We are all born for love; it is the principle of existence, and its only end.” ~Benjamin Disraeli
Of love for love to be, is life ever-birthing; for love, being, is life’s blossoming..
And when I love freely, without restriction of concern or pensiveness; without gauging acceptance, rejection or furtiveness..
..happiness fills me; life’s vibrant effortlessness, overflows of gladness..
Unceasing, a river flows through me; that which blossoms the flower, unfolds me..
Yet if I hide or hold-back in refrain of love’s candor, to be of equal measure with perceived censor; it requires effort and weightiness seeps in..
“The love that you withhold is the pain that you carry.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Constrained, love is disallowed its boundless going, dimming life’s glowing; and rainbows then unknown, obscured from heart’s warming..
With childlike wonder, inherent is our nature to love, untaught; and still, heart’s counsel encourages without forethought, to live with all the love which love alone avails me..
For it is not ‘my’ love, nor of your bestowal; but the beauty of love adding unto itself as life unto life, nurturing all within and along its flow, freely..
“Love is the water of life.” ~Rumi
Thus love cannot be kept or stored, nor regulated or directed..
No toggle switch is found, which turns love off, nor lessens; no valve has love been bound, adjusting love’s beckon..
And though you heap upon it blame of suffering and brokenness,
the heart remains ever still, wholly open, free and changeless..
“The mind and the body are famous for holding the heart ransom.” ~Hafiz
Humanity alone, decrees its own waning; unspoken etiquette, the cause of ailing, as if one could audit, when and how much love..
.. an implied hug of social fare, unfulfilled of heart; lip affair, unspoken by heart..
And should one cross the threshold wrought of acceptability; beauty is drown ‘neath sneering frown of undesirability..
Then quicken they in withdrawal, as a tortoise; with silent recant
of heart’s holy chant, distanced from dearness of love’s openness..
And beauty’s effortlessness is lost of heart’s compass; and avoidance by thought remains, where truth once reigned..
“The arrogance of reason has separated us from love.” ~Kabir
Yet life is inseparable, streaming forth from within; what breathes the tree, breathes you and me..
And why too close is feared, of love untiered; an imagined identity, protecting its falsity..
Llife is love being, to know and be known; as love overflows, the flowering of you unfolds..
You are your own negation, pretending to be alone; pulling back blank curtain, to hide what truth has shone..
And this is the very hindrance, which veils love from your knowing;
alight in love’s pure presence, all falsity there showing..
“Love sometimes wants to do us a great favor; hold us upside down and shake all the nonsense out.” ~Hafiz
You are Daniel, and the lion’s den, ignorance; what you fear is naught
but absence of your whole presence..
And though there may be degree of intimacy, love’s equality knows no privacy; for in transparency does love glisten, and sweet vulnerability is love’s beacon..
All form and deed you see, is the life of love, or a cry for love; thus is love truly life’s only remedy..
“The world is not to be put in order; the world is order, incarnate. It’s for us to harmonize with this order.” ~Henry Miller
As a spring overflows from within, love permeates and saturates, one unto all; thus all is one..
A twinkling smile, or blushing cheek, in kindness beamed, does heart speak; a mere passing glance, unveils love’s radiance..
“Only those whose hearts have been conquered by love know the secret language of the glance.” ~Faouzi Skali
For love is not conveyed playing of charades, nor in strategic innuendo
does love’s beauty flow; but open as the shyless air, yielding as a lover bare..
And the naturalness of love to be, boundless, whole and free; the very life of life, shall I not deny, for only this can I be true, to myself and you..
“To know yourself, to surrender to the truth of yourself, is to surrender to love.” ~Gangaji
And to those whom may refuse, shall I offer no amend; for of love cannot be found, horizon to its end..
Nor could I possibly, outdo such perfect remedy; no island does exist of thee, adrift love’s swelling sea..
“What brings order in the world is to love, and let love do what it will.” ~Krishnamurti
Life’s lover am I merely, immersed of endless beauty; everywhere around me, love’s returning glance I see..
No longer shall I wither, veiled of shame to hide; but unadorned in nakedness, afloat love’s rising tide..
“Love rests on no foundation. It is an endless ocean, with no beginning or end.” ~Rumi
As the full spectrum of light exceeds detection of ones eyes; as the full frequency of sound exceeds capacity of ones hearing; as the expansiveness of life exceeds tangibleness of physicality..
So too does love, the very breath of life, exceed all confinement;
for love’s embrace of bouyant grace, is free of vocal fervent..
“Love cannot be said.” ~Rumi
For if you taste of love, and feel its vibrance coursing through; giving rise to every cell, aliveness ever-new..
Ye shall be swallowed in inclusiveness beyond all thought of exclusivity;
an embrace, all-encompassing, enlightening the darkest closets..
For there are no secrets hidden from love; it is love that begins you, and love which unfolds you..
And would you know love, shall you be uprooted that you may fly; and disrobed of hiding, all which does defy..
“Stay here, quivering with each moment like a drop of mercury.” ~Rumi
Yet in love being, no discomfort nor disrespect is meant, for it is not love which harbors such lament…
And if I be true, to life’s sweetness; bid I must adieu, to all falseness..
For it’s not ‘my’ love, nor are you its origin; it is love itself which births all life clothed earthen..
And all that’s asked, of me unmasked; to unveil the higher beauty, of love for love to be.
“All of life loves you, I know is true; I feel it flowing through my heart, onward to you.”
