It is at the edge of a petal that love waits ~ William Carlos William
Love has many meanings and for the most part we tend to get caught up in its complexities and try to be too many things to too many people. We lose our sense of balance and we either take more than we need or we give away far too much of our self, our very essence. We tend to look beyond the obvious, that Love begins with us. Once we make that deeper connection to self we realize the power of self love. To truly give our love to others we have to first love ourselves and when we put it into practice then and only then will we experience an awakening.
Our life path seemingly rickety and likened to a skeleton stretched across a barren land but in that moment of awakening, there love waits.
Men do change, and change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass ~ John Steinbeck
We reach a point in our lives where we realize our need for change. On reflection we may see something in ourselves that we feel we can improve on, make worthier. Instead of trying to attempt immediate and profound changes within, we should rather allow our inner essence to flow freely, gently, slowly. For it is our spirit, our authentic self, that wants to express itself, to grow and experience life and for this to happen, our spirit needs change.
Change is like soft gusts of wind, blowing through the entrails of our minds within the colorful fabrics of our lives. Embrace the Winds of Change.
