Recognizing and acknowledging what love isn’t.
& the way we do that is by opening ourselves and our hearts once again.
Kinda reminds me of that Dr. Maya Angelou quote:
Have enough courage to trust love one more time
Oh, & this gem:
Love is a condition so powerful; it may be that which pulls the stars in the firmament. It may be that which pushes and urges the blood in the veins. Courage: you have to have courage to love somebody because you risk everything – everything.
It’s all a risk because some people and their intentions can be complete and utter shit.
But to achieve bliss, in this sense...it’s always worth it. Because the more you open yourself up to it, the more you grow/better you get (hopefully)
‘cause in love and growth begets clarity, discernment & healthier boundaries
You found me
After I found myself
We attracted one another after we stopped telling and living outdated stories & left those books on the shelf.
So. Here we are. Here we go. So much to lose and heaven to gain. Scorpio season always reminds me of transmutation. & these darker seasons urging me to be patient while living in a matrix & the land of instant gratification.
So, back to the lesson
& what I feel I’m being taught...
how to not
give up on love
& I had to stop
& expecting perfection from imperfect humans
When most of us are just doing our best
From where we at
What we understand, perceive and know to be true
Our current level of consciousness is proof
Happily ever is an attainable endeavor
Never, weather permitting
Admitting that we belong to ourselves first and only
& not to continue to commit to lofty, idealistic ideas and standards of love-because we’re lonely
Love is not that
Happily ever after...about that
I learned that
Nobody is promised to you forever
So I vow to love you and be your partner as long as we both agree to
As long as it’s healthy for the both of us
Not because time or history
The thing about love...it’s a beautiful mystery
To be discovered
unraveled and learned over and over til the end of time
Til we get it “right”
& feel like
Our whole & complete selves are not compromised
For the sake of union
I want you
All of what makes you, you.
& I promise to present the same to you
Scars, healing, and truth
An ever evolving human and work in progress, to be continued
