Love Day 28

I wrote this in a message yesterday: "I didn't originally know what I know now back in December or January or even last week."

This 28 day meditation has taken on a spirit and life of it's own, almost like soul moving, a consciousness revealing, from my mind yet also reshaping it. This flow of 28 days is a journey inside a journey. These posts are one part of why I seem to know what I did not know before. I highly encourage you to pick some theme and explore it every day to see what you find.  There's a whole bunch of learning in here. And I suspect sometime, maybe in a month or two, I will post a sequel to the 28 days of love.

This resonates with me today. From The Book of Awakening:

"...this is the never ending work of relationship, each of us in our own time and way moving the stones between us, repositioning the heavy things that get in the way, so the life of feeling can continue."

What are the heavy things that are getting in the way?

Love Day 27: Love Sustains Life

'Without love there is no meaning to life. That's the bottom line. It is not of the mind it is of the heart. Love is not simply an emotional pull, it is also the highest intelligence. If you are in love if you are in the heart is the intelligence of creation, so anyone in love you will be very creative.'

Love Day 26

This month of mantra and meditation on love has been a journey in itself. With 3 days to go and nothing surfacing as the theme of today, I will just write some of my thoughts.

Love is so much more than romantic love, which on Love is Chemical (Day 13) blog is further explained. The romantic part is exciting, but as I've always said, the foundation has to be much stronger than that. Everyone who loves you will likely also disappoint you greatly one or more times.  Relationship type love requires that you work through that or make some space and give some time and see if the love is still there when the hurt is healed. 

Commitment is part of long term love. You've got to decide that you won't be distracted by someone else who shows you attention or something else that becomes a priority. Everything needs to feed the relationship and what you're building and continuously shaping since, like everything, love is not static. Love moves and changes and flows like tides.  Fee…

Love Day 25: The Perfect Love Song

There's a light
A certain kind of light
That never shone on me
I want my life to be lived with you
Lived with you

There's a way everybody say
To do each and every little thing
But what does it bring
If I aint got you, aint got ?
You don't know what it's like, baby
You don't know what it's like

To love somebody
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

In my brain
I see your face again
I know my frame of mind
You aint got to be so blind
And Im blind, so very blind
Im a man, can't you see
What I am
I live and breathe for you
But what good does it do
If I aint got you, aint got ?

Love Day 24

"She's brought out the real me. And I get nervous and tense like anybody else but I'm more relaxed than I ever was, since I was a child, you know."
"Anybody who knows our history knows that we went through all hell together - through miscarriages and terrible times." "I'd never met a woman I considered as intelligent as me. That sounds bigheaded, but every woman I met was either a dolly-chick, or a sort of screwed-up intellectual chick. And of course, in the field I was in, I didn't meet many intellectual people anyway. I always had this dream of meeting an artist, an artist girl who would be like me. And I thought it was a myth, but then I met Yoko and that was it."
"We've broken down a few barriers between us, which we had to do because we had two big egos. Two individual artists - and with love we overcame that."
We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it i…

I dreamed of two swans forming a purple tribal designed heart not long ago. Today is inspired by the dream and stages of moving together.

Love Day 18: Love Is (a story)

My Mom loved these comics and we collected them when I was a little girl.  Love is...what love warriors do.  Love is the core of all that is.

Love Day 17: Love is Patient

I'm not a very patient person. I also don't have to think a lot before acting. If I feel something strongly enough I do it. It's not really an impulsive things with me since I will ask myself questions and have learned not to give quick responses. I know about wait time and better outcomes. Having said that, I am  a fire sign, an activator and an initiator. If I love you I will tell you. If I think something is worth trying, I try it without being too concerned about the outcome.

Yet the many quotes about love is patient must have some wisdom.

Lyman Abbott may have described the kind of patience I am working on and practicing (and practice is not perfect). The author and theologian wrote: Patience is passion tamed.

Passion I do not need practice with. I am taming it so I can give it full run later on.

Let's consider another bit of wisdom. Patience is the ability to let your motor idle when you feel like stripping your gears. (Barbara Johnson) Was she talking directly t…

Love is Chemical: Day 13

The Chemicals Between Us

Chemicals form bonds. Like lovers. To hold fast - stick to firmly, Bind: to form a chemical bond with; "The hydrogen binds the oxygen"
Bind: definition 5 a:to cause to stick together

b: to take up and hold (as by chemical forces) : combine with
endorphins - Love stimulates release of endorphins. For lovers, the honeymoon is over chemically around 18 months to 4 years into a relationship. However, the effect can be forever. Endorphins are associated with feelings of attachment and comfort, as in they bind couples. Endorphins are the natural remedy that calm anxiety, relieves pain and reduces stress.

Oxytocin=let's stay together

Love is Imagination Day 12

"For a relationship to stay alive, love alone is not enough. Without imagination, love stales into sentiment, duty, boredom. Relationships fail not because we have stopped loving but because we first stopped imagining."
- psychologist James Hillman

Powerful imagination knows no limitations. Let yours out to play and see what happens...

Love Day 11

In the words of Louis Armstrong (at least I think they are his words!)

Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Our hearts are made of it; let's take a chance
Why be afraid of it?

Let's close our eyes
And make our own paradise
Little we know of it; still we can try
To make a go of it

We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be; let our hearts discover

Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Now is the time for it, while we are young
Let's fall in love

Love Day 10: Magic Spell for Love

Create a love spell with things you have at home. This can be a tribute to the relationship you're in or to one you want to win. It can be for attracting a partner that is a match for you. Be clear with your intention and ask for a happy, ready partner who will bring joy and balance as well as passion! What can you find in my rock love garden that symbolizes love? Here are some things you might include:

rose quartz or any pink stone
carnelian for passion, love and desire
any jewelry with a heart symbol or shape
anything with the word love
charms you consider lucky
an item that a lover gave you if you want to win him or her back
something representative of the person you "want" : a birthstone, zodiac symbol, animal totem, or something of his or hers
tarot cards: I randomly drew the 10 of cups last night with the happy couple on it and also strength which could be a good force for commitment so I left them aside the rock garden for good energy
crystals or other shiny …

Love Day 9: Number of Saturation

Yes, it is true. I confess,
I have thought great thoughts,
and sung great songs—all of it
rehearsal for the majesty
of being held.
The dream is awakened
when thinking I love you
and life begins
when saying I love you
and joy moves like blood

when embracing others with love.
My efforts now turn
from trying to outrun suffering
to accepting love wherever
I can find it. Stripped of causes and plans
and things to strive for,
I have discovered everything
I could need or ask for
is right here—
in flawed abundance. We cannot eliminate hunger,
but we can feed each other.
We cannot eliminate loneliness,
but we can hold each other.

We cannot eliminate pain,
but we can live a life
of compassion. Ultimately,
we are small living things
awakened in the stream,
not gods who carve out rivers. Like human fish, we are asked to experience
meaning in the life that moves
through the gill of our heart.
There is nothing to do
and nowhere to go.
Accepting this,
we can do everything
and go anywhere.

Love Day 8

“Mysteriously, as elusive as it is, this moment--where the eye is what it sees, where the heart is what it feels--this moment shows us that what is real is sacred” 
― Mark Nepo from The Book of Awakening

Love Day 7

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. (Bruce Lee)
