Beloved Flower Lover,
Look outside….go outside….look at us through google maps even….London is stunningly sunny today and we are looking at flowers once again on this full moon of love and everything romantic and affectionate!
Flowers can help us to embrace and celebrate the natural and permanent love within ourselves and others. Flowers then become what we call, an ‘eyes open meditation’. Where as we gaze at beauty, we are actually inviting ourselves to enjoy giving more attention to it within our self right now. To be present enough to experience it right now. And by having filled our inner movie screen up with that attention to love, we then overflow it out to others.
Love is only experienced now. And since experiences are had on the inside, then we can choose to switch our attention to the place where it is already.
Seems simple enough!
Well, let’s look at nature to help explore this truth.
Yes we can think about how birds and bees are interdependent etc, however only thinking about things like that, only creates thinking about it. Love is actually walking the talk, it is the experience of it. So maybe its about experiencing the fact that we are in a cycle of give and take and to acknowledge that, to give attention to that, to feel appreciation for that, may move us away from just talking about it. which only keep us one step removed from experiencing it. Perhaps!
Let’s turn to romance, affection and passion in a love affair. All the thinky, thinky thinking…. Like ” the person is not quite right”, or “I have not found the right one yet” or ” they are going to leave me”, etc. keeps you, I ,we, us, one step removed from the actual experience of love right now.
So again, maybe we need permission to go and just experience it now. Perhaps. You decide!
…If not, you are postponing it, I am postponing it, we are postponing it, it feels postponed….
waiting and delaying
…We invite ourselves back, to lean back and rest back into the presence of our own being, and as you do,you, we I, us discover the intimate resting space of that full embrace of love.
