What does love feel like? It feels like there’s nothing I could ever do that’s wrong. It’s a warm, comforting embrace of complete and utter acceptance. It’s the relief felt when you find out everything going to be ok. When worry and fear suddenly melt away. It’s when your child lies because they don’t want to disappoint you, and you let it go. It’s when your spouse tries to make you happy with their version of love language, not yours, and you accept the gift anyway.
I grew up thinking love was the aching pit in my stomach when someone I was attracted to didn’t reciprocate. Or that love was the happiness I felt when someone I was attracted to actually did reciprocate. I was taught that love means doing for others even when you don’t want to, and smiling when you want to cry.
And then I felt the love of spirit. The love from spirit. The love that vibrates both in and through me that I was born with. That we’re all born with. There will never be enough words to describe the energy of love because it’s beyond words.
Love is acceptance. It fully and completely allows all. Yes, ALL. It observes without judging, takes notes without criticizing, and hopes with every fiber of its being to know itself through each of its creations.
Love is so much more than merely an incredible feeling, it’s information. It has all the answers and knows before I do. It doesn’t dictate to me which choice to make or way to go but allows us infinite options. With do-overs always an option.
My favorite thing about love is magic. It grows people from a few cells and creates lives that look like everything under the sun and then some. It saves us from certain death and allows us to cross over to its loving embrace.
It’s intelligent and healing and looks like bright white light made from rainbows of every color. Love is the perfection of geometry and math while creating limitless music from eight notes and then some. It animates and inspires brush strokes and little fingers who paint masterpieces on paper, canvas, and macaroni strung into a necklace.
I could spend all day trying to describe love to you, but it would be much easier for you to go hug your loved one. The one you cherish, who makes you light up.
Have a wonderful day filled with the light of a thousand suns, and love.
