Freedom to Be Love.

I’m livid with love.

I’m on fire, I’m restless.

I can’t sleep but I’m glowing, energetic, and I feel alive.

It’s like I’m in love.

It has the symptoms of mental disorder, I’m told that’s what being in love is like.

But I’m in love with no one and with everyone. There is no limit to what I can embrace.

There is no limit to how much we can love; no need to contain it. It moves through us, we breathe in its being.

There is no limit to how much we can take in when we let it out — express it.

We can give much, forgive much, but we also need to receive, a challenge for many people.

To receive and to give are both human expressions. To need and to be needed.

Inhale, exhale.

“Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain, and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” ~ Ricky Fitts, American Beauty

Love is a manifestation of the higher self. It feeds the capacity to contain the infinite.

Infinite possibilities for good, infinite capacity for forgiveness, infinite understanding, and infinite fountain of giving.

All we need to love is not to stay in the moment, but to let it breathe and flow and be life.

The moment is a doorway to love, but love is the escape from its clutches.

In love there are no labels, there are only tentative things we hold to understand each other.

In love there is a meeting of minds and a holding of hearts, protecting each other yet letting go of the moment.

Love is a trust that the infinite is yours for the taking.

Love is power. Breathe your birthright. Breathe love.
