LOVE MATTERS MOST

All that matters is to love wholeheartedly. For today surrender to everything with love and deliberately saturate all the paths you cross with the brilliance of it.

Nothing can live physically forever, that we know but so very hard when it becomes a reality. Someone is lost every day, every week, every month, every year. Loss touches each one of us. Depending on their meaning to us the loss can dramatically change our lives especially when the expanse of the person remarkably influenced the men and women we are. After loosing her mother, a dear friend said, ‘it all truly boils down to love’. She said, ‘that is all that is left here for me to wrap my arms around’. It is true, some how some way there is a magic that colors and saturates what was before in a way that emphasizes only the heartfelt deep love and companionship. There is a power in it, so big, so bold, and so bright. It’s after the loss that we wonder did I love enough, did I say it enough, did I express it enough or did they even know?  Not everyone gets another day. Some know they won’t get another day but most don’t. It’s over when it’s over and we are left alone to make sense of a new world without the one we so dearly loved.  The irony is it is their very love that gives us the strength to go on without them.

Don’t wait; don’t withhold this powerful peace giving emotion from the ones in your midst. To love expands courage, builds hope, fosters faith and strengthens relationship and connection. Don’t wake up wishing you had been more kind, more in touch, more accepting, more more more. Be all those things today! Just for today for those that still surround you with love and light, for those still vibrant and beautiful be sure they know with every sense of who you are that you so dearly love them. You love every crazy annoying habit. Even with every forgotten promise, let them know you still wholeheartedly love them. Thank them, hug them, serve them, forgive them and cherish them. For it is their loving connection to you that colors and contributes to everything you are.

All that matters is to love wholeheartedly. For today surrender to everything with love and deliberately saturate all the paths you cross with the brilliance of it.
