Love is the Blood of the Universe

August 14, 2013

When your heart aches
And, some inner voice
Recites that old list of faults

 

Or when the colors of the world
Seem to pale and your
Trying to be positive and upbeat
Seems like a lie you tell to yourself

 

Remember that I too have felt this
And, so have your mother, father, friends, and children
And even the master teachers of the world

 

If you pause now
Just for 10 seconds
B r e a t h e
And feel your Heart’s Beat

 

Know that your
Heart-blood courses through you
Without your effort or will
It supports and feeds you even when you
Feel helpless and defeated

 

A force, not in your control
Some blood of the universe
Flows through us until
We are ready to leave

 

And today you might just
Relax, let go and
Be gentle to yourself
And let yourself be carried
By the love that gave you life

 

And know that you are not alone
In your journey
