What is Love?

Boy and Rose

Actions arising out of stillness,
being moved without lifting a finger,
not trying to pursue a thing.

In a tender embrace, we stay,

entwined until we part ways;
Like a tree branch cherishing its leaves,
like the sea cradles its fish.

All that has to come to light,
let it come from deep within:
fear, anger, sadness, shame, pain.

I remain beside you:
no thoughts,
not trying to interfere.

Nothing is broken;
There’s nothing to be fixed.

Being fully present is the way
that sets us free from our self-imposed confinement.

I am your timeless self—
the one beside you on our journey,
the one to hold the space when you feel stuck,
a gentle nudge, a wink, a touch of hands.

No judgment,
never pushing you away.

Allowing space—
space that holds you
as you emerge from your secret den,
trusting that you can,
knowing you are held by grace.

Fear, anger, sadness, shame, pain.
They start to melt away.
Left behind is empty space.

All you have been taught begins to fade away.
You are on the way to find yourself again.

I hold you and you hold me
in that long-lasting moment.
The worlds we knew, they disappear.
It’s just you and me:
infinity of possibilities,
tears of compassion,
everlasting song of silence.

Heart is at peace,
mind comes to rest.
I feel blessed.

“I” enters the flow,
emptiness infused with love and light.
I know I am
I am home.
