Love Is What We Are
"Love is neither learned nor taught. We are created in and of love. It is what we are." - Eric Butterworth
Sometimes I don't feel like I am love; sometimes I don't feel like loving, especially when I'm faced with a perceived challenge. I feel irritated and frustrated, and I think I know why at the time. But then, I sit in the reality--what is real to me. I look within, only to find out that I am actually irritated with the idea of the challenge; so, I pull the challenge apart, piece by piece, in my thoughts, deciphering it.
You know what I find? I find that I'm attached to a specific outcome of the perceived challenge. When I release and let go of the attachment, I feel free. When I open my mind and heart--relaxing my shoulders, my back, softening my heart and mind, and letting go of expectations--love shines through; I feel Divine Presence all around me, in me and through me.
I feel my light shining; I feel the love glowing. Even in perceived darkness, I see the light. How? I am carrying it with me, lighting my path, and for this: I AM grateful to be love. Love is what we are.
