Love is like water. It has to flow.
Many times we get terrified of love. Of our own feelings. We’re scared that the rush would overwhelm us and break the dam that holds us safe together.
The truth is, it’s safe to love.
Love only becomes overbearing when we block its natural flow. When we really wanna embrace someone but instead we choose to turn our back on them. When we really wanna forgive and liberate our heart but we choose to face more daggers instead. When we really wanna look someone in the eyes and melt into them but instead we avert our gaze, we pretend like we don’t care.
Love only hurts us when we’re blocked. When love cannot flow smoothly into all our crevices; into all the cracks that are hurting, lonely, afraid. Love has to run free. Love has to take the shape of our own Body. Soul. Mind. In fact, it’s love that has shaped this earth and everything that we see.
Love connects us. We’re here only because of love. Love is only here because of us. Love. Love. There’s nothing else to do but to love.
Love has to be expressed. Love demands to be expressed. Everywhere we look. Everywhere we go. Where there is light. Where there is none. Love has to find a way. Love has to stay.
Let love flow through you. Let it bathe you. Let it purify you. Love. Don’t be afraid to love. Let love change you.
*We can only grow in the most profound ways through love.
