Currie's Gratitude 3 August 2013

Love, Love, Love. All you need is Love

Darling, I love you just the way you are

These are the thoughts wandering gently round my birdbrain.

What is it about the word Love that I love?! 

Or is it the idea of Love that I love?! 

Perhaps it’s even the feeling. 

Or the experience. Both of loving and BEing loved.

I hesitate really to put too fine a point on it.

If you judge people, you have no time to love them. [Mother Teresa] 

Wise and empowering words which come close to what I REALLY thinkandfeel about Love.

Another perspective is from Lao Tzu, Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

This bit of poeming from e.e.cummings:

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

it is one which has always felt more real to me a definition of Love.

I may NOT know any better way to say it than this; just like this…

I love you, Currie
