For your Valentine's Day
I have met my soul today. Shining in the eyes of another. And my heart is aflame with the beauty of The One.A thousand lamps have been lit, a thousand songs have risen in my heart, a thousand seeds have been planted that will grow and bloom untended.When we are together, our energy reaches out and becomes a doorway, lighting up the area around it, and everyone that walks through looks up to stare, not knowing why, yet changed in the presence of its transforming fire.Suddenly everything is a thousand times richer, a thousand times more colourful, a thousand times more real. Every moment is filled with a thousand possibilities. Part of my soul draws back – afraid – but then love sings back, 'surrender!'When I'm with him, my heart, in rapture, sings the sweetest song. When I look into his eyes, I see the deepest treasures of my soul mirrored back to me and I swallow and close my eyes, unable for a moment to stand in the force of this all-consuming fire. But then courage knocks me on the shoulder. And I dissolve into those grey-blue pools of sparkling fire.The truth in his eyes teaches me a thousand things. About love. About wisdom. About Truth. And in these eyes I see reflected back all the yearnings I have felt all my life, all the tenderness and gentleness that I am capable of feeling. And I melt into love…When I'm alone, the flame gently burns, transforming every second of every moment, everything I do, every word I write, every conversation I have. In this flame is the potential of all of creation. A thousand songs unsung. A thousand poems waiting to be written. A thousand hearts waiting to be touched and transformed by the love of The One.The unquenchable fire has been lit. And a thousand torches around that fire are even now bursting into flame. And a thousand more. And every second another. It has begun.
