A love we control
Is a million miles from
Worthy of the name

Aye, a million miles – a trillion….!
How blissful that loss of control.
So many think they ‘Love’ and yet we but touch what the Unconditional Love state truly is… So many still judge including me.. We have still a long journey before we reach those Million Milestones of True Unconditional Love…. Bless you…. Sue
And you also, Sue.
this reminds me of the quote “Love does not claim possession, but gives freedom” — I just read another one the other day about freedom of love but I can’t seem to find it anymore, but this one will do, until then 😉
The greatest Truths
Are those which
When you realise them
Your view of the world
Is totally transformed
And you ask yourself how
Given so obvious they are
You never saw them before
(Thank you. Nice to have you back as a muse, Bella. 🙂 E-mail soon, promise. )
I’m always asking myself that question! 😉 I’ve given up on finding the truth to anything, but only that of my true self, I let everything else just fall naturally as it may and when it’s ready to be seen … My zen force has kicked into high gear and I love it! No more wasted energy on things that do not serve me. I’m looking forward to your email. 🙂
And I’m glad to be back, thanks for the warm welcome 😀
