The conversation we're having here is a very human one...

The conversation we're having here is a very human one. Inside the mandala of love, we are all naked, raw, tender, and ripe. Enter here and you will be unclothed – of concept and of any remaining separation between you and 'other.' Whether that 'other' is another person or the unwanted within you, you are alive between heaven and earth. 

You need no longer apologize for what you are. Your sensitivity and your vulnerability need not be 'fixed' nor your heartbreak 'healed.' For these are the gates to the mandala and the ways you will connect and attune to beings everywhere. 

If you will slow down, open your senses and listen carefully, you will see that the beloved has placed a longing inside you, a yearning that is unique to you, to know love as the organizing principle of this very rare and precious world. We have no idea, truly, if there will be another opportunity quite like this, some other star of love floating around out there. For a moment, let us assume there is not. Let us commit to being right here, and right now. And see what happens.

We each have our way of knowing and expressing this longing, of opening our hearts, our bodies, and our nervous systems to the truth of being, to the unbearable creativity that is this human life. As Rumi reminds us, let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
