Wednesday Wish (57); BE LOVE



If she listened to the fear, she never would have known what was meant to heal her soul. They called her naïve, foolish, too innocent for her own good, a dreamer, an idealist, the woo-woo girl, anything to dismiss her daring as ridiculous. Anything to confirm that their fears were invited to speak much louder than her own. For she too, had fears. Sometimes they even made her legs tremble and her heart race. But never did she allow those fears to muzzle her heart. Instead, she dared to listen to the quiet, clear voice of her heart, to keep her eyes facing toward the light, and to always try her best to honor what felt right in the deepest part of her Self. So then, her fears quelled themselves, naturally. And the darkness fell back into the shadows...

So she moved to Mexico
To make her home,
Alone.
But less alone than ever before.

And 8 years later, she gathered up her things, and drove back North
To make her new home
With her daughter.
Because that, too, felt right.

And along the way, she learned.
Again
and Again,
and
Again
to
BE LOVE.

*          *          *

When love is sparse, 
be love anyway.
Share your love, because
anything less,
doesn’t feel right.

Speak your heart
even when
fear suspects
your heart might not be heard.
For when you honor your heart,
your heart then
Honors
You.

When faced with fear,
return it with love.
BE LOVE
to the fear,
and watch that fear dissolve into smiles.



BE LOVE
And taste a world
Transformed.

  5. Two letters, and you nailed it my pod mate. :-) With two letters, you summed up what it is to live. BE. "Be" Love. Not know love, see love or feel love, but BE Love. Perfect. Be kindness, Be compassion, Be aware, Be alive..... Be love. Yes my dear friend, truly the wisest words I've heard in my Pirate life. It's one thing to observe life, it's an entire world different to Be life. Thank you.
