a Valentine story…

“Close your eyes” she said, “Now, imagine the most romantic Valentine’s Day ever.

You know….

–  the way the day greets you outside, with so much potential

         The way warmth washes over you

A sense of belonging, a worthiness in being loved

& The Passion through your veins because of it

 

The gratitude for the joy of your life – witnessed through this other person’s eyes

And an entire day to remind you of it!

 

The scent of roses, deep pinks, burnt orange  and velvety red – intoxicate you

The perfect potions, in the perfect glasses and the marriage of your favorite foods on your taste buds

 

And maybe even, you imagine this deep mind-blowing intimacy

– the way souls meld to the point of eternity & creation touching for the first time

 

And you end your day with a prayer of gratitude

As you close your eyes, rested and full of life

Hopeful and trusting –In yet another day

And for a moment all of life makes sense.”…

 

She paused… “Now slowly open your eyes

And take in where you are & observe your first thoughts

 

Perhaps your heart feels a jolt of incomplete? Whether you are single or in a relationship?

But quickly – if you just look closer – you would realize that every emotion

You just felt in your body – was as real as if it happened

 

And in truth – no other person can give that to you in exactly the way you just imagined

Off course it is possible to gain a kind of passionate joy beyond all imagination with another

But my point is – in whatever you are wishing for now —- that you can viably express or hope for

There is only one person who can absolutely give it all to you, and my dear – that person is you.

 

And no matter who shows up on your journey

And who you choose to partner with for a day or eternity

Never forget this potential

This worthiness

This most romantic day you have every power of giving to yourself

 

So release that furrow from your brow my friend

You are so loved

Don’t you see?  In fact, you are love itself?

And the more you share the love that is already you, the more it will be available in your life.”
