I went within and felt nothing this morning. I knew this day would come, but I thought I would put it off until the day I’d die. Yes, I thought I’d have enough juice within to tell my story until I took that last breath.
But Life fooled me. It hit me upside the head, showing me you can’t take anything for granted. All things are subject to change. All phenomena is transitory, all is impermanent. The only permanence that exists is the Love I believe that energizes us and the world we all live in.
Well, just mentioning the word “Love” gets something stirring within me. I “feel” a warmth start to grow and begin to spread. It started in my loins. That’s a helluva place to begin, don’t you think?
That’s the place that the nuns and priests told us was strictly off limits. You know, the private parts that would lead to nothing but disgusting sex and ruination of god-fearing Catholics.
To hell with that teaching.
My loins are producing something from the other Chakras of my body.
It is love from my solar plexus that has gotten filled with the liquid lava of pure unadulterated love.
I’ll take this love anyway I can get it. Including on a day like today when nothing seems to exist within me. Yes, the nothing that is opening me to the emptiness I’ve been seeking for what seems like forever.
Have I finally found it? I don’t know, but nothing is a nice piece of clarity and calmness to rediscover! It’s yours for the taking and mine for the giving.
