“Sing in me Muse, and through me tell the story.”
Love, like life, is about the journey not the destination. Avoid it and it will intrude upon your carefully constructed world, wreaking intoxicating havoc. Seek it out, and it will flee, like a hunted deer among life’s harsh landscape. Try to posses it, and it will slip away from your grasp, like water through a closed fist. The only answer and perhaps the most difficult, is to surrender at all times to love’s arrival without holding on.
The way I’ve learned it, love attracts love, and this means that you must feel it in order to receive it. Infusing every area of your life with love draws it ever closer. Although, there is no formal recipe, a dash of desire and a hint of excitement, these and more always help.
Finally, it doesn’t serve love to say I’ve been hurt before, because truly, haven’t we all? Instead, let yourself be broken open, forever reaching within toward that part of you longing to love.
