A Grander Love
Love is such a beautiful expression. When we feel the passion of romance, the gentle touch of kindness, or the simple gaze of a willing smile, we are lifted into a higher awareness of life's potential. In these precious moments, the impossible melts into infinity itself where all things are possible. We instantly remember what matters most is this love that unites us and assures us that all is well.
At the core of our being, we intuitively know we are love. Not just an external expression of love that we equate or define as a loving act, rather the grander love that is unconditional. This love knows no bounds or limits, causes our heart to beat, our body to feel and our mind to think. It animates us and inspires us. Such boundless love literally gives us the freedom to explore the very depths of our reality. Without it, we cease to exist. With it, we soar to amazing heights of experience.
Love is silent, yet beckons each moment. This is not a paradox, it is an invitation. Love does not intrude since it is ever present. It merely calls to us and asks that it be included in our awareness through every thought, feeling, word, deed and action. What could be easier?
In this physical world we have become so far removed from this intrinsic aspect of our nature that we have forgotten its existence and importance. Instead, we frequently replace true love with our sensory notions and expectations and limit our expression to a few physiological, mental and emotional acrobatics. These demonstrations are an artificial version of love and are symbolic tokens at best. Naturally, they contain the seeds of a grander love; however we usually do not nurture or cultivate unconditional love long enough to experience its potential in us or our relationships.
Who among us is courageous enough to remember the truth of love? Shall we be so brave as to be the first to embrace and accept ourselves as potent beings of love? Are we willing to share this limitless expression to each and every one around us - without expectation of anything in return? Can we be so bold as to forgive? So outrageous as to accept and embrace the same potential of love in others?
As we grow through life, let us contemplate and invoke this grander love.
