Given a choice, I want love in my life. In order to have love in my life, I have to learn to suppress my ego. Ego is something that I have to deal with on a daily basis. Ego often intrudes on my day by wanting me to do or say something that may satisfy me in the moment, but will it do so at the cost of peace of mind.
While out with a friend today. since she was driving I could sit and look around in a way I can’t do if I’m the driver. There was no concept of time, just a feeling of quiet and a gentle happiness. The day was awesome, temperature for me was perfect, the sunshine bright and warming, yet the cool freshness of a fall day would lazily drift in and around us while we walked along to where we were headed. The meal wasn’t the best… but we had fun just being together and living the moments. Others in the restaurant shared their disappointment in the general disorganization of the place.It was under renovation, and instead of closing while they did what they had to do.. they were open for business. It was not a good experience -food wise- other than that.. it was great being with a close and long time friend.
We often get to spend time alone, even when we are surrounded by people, we can be alone. Our minds either allow other energy in, or it dismisses it. I can be very content on my own, my creative juices can run rampant when I am left to be creative. But when I am sharing time with a friend, and that friend is connected to the me that is inside my head, wow, it is beyond any words that I could use to express the moments that we share. It can be as silly as eating food with the wrong end of the chopsticks. Or saying something mundane and silly yet to us it is mind-blowing and profound.
It is in knowing our true selves, that we can sow love with the knowledge that love IS eternal and it does last forever.
True love is the energy that binds us together. in solitude we are experiencing a copulative moment in the spiritual realm.. the connection pure and everlasting.
‘When our resolve is to live a life of love. Sitting in solitude is a healing energy… and when we share with all sincerity , the essence of that love grows as does the friendship.
When life is taken from us, we can only let it. LIke waves of the ocean, or the rings in a tree, we are where we are supposed to be. Acceptance makes us stronger.. pushing against Nature’s forces, will only make the lesson harder.
Be safe – Walk in peace
