When all is said and done, when words and ideas brilliantly fail you, when you are broken-hearted and so very small, Love is the only thing left.
Love is unreasoning because it doesn’t take reason to love.
Love is many things to many people because love is all there is.
Love is glue, for it attracts,
Love is gravity, for it holds.
Love is fire, for it burns.
Love is water, for it is life.
Love is air, for it is everywhere.
Love is earth, for it is our home.
Love IS light.
Love is stronger than any words or ideas. Love can heal a shattered and broken heart.
There are as many expressions of love as there are grains of sand, or heavenly bodies in the universe because every manifest and un-manifest thing is love and knows love in its own way.
When adversity comes your way there is a choice. A choice to see through the eyes of love and act in compassion, or a choice to react in pain. When ideas and words fail you and bring pain to you and those you love, in the end, all that matters is love. Because in Lennon’s words: “The love you make is equal to the love you take.”
The love you make is who you are, because you are love. Your words can hurt me, they may decimate me, shatter my heart, but in the end it is still my choice to love you, to hold your heart in compassion and wait for you to grow. There is so much in this world meant to destroy love and confuse love, but in the end it is still a choice to love. You must choose it and never give up. You must love knowing that is all that you really can do. When nothing else works, love will.
Love is the one true, never ending thing.
Love is all there ever was, is and will be.
