For this is what you are

The forms that love take are by nature arising and dissolving in each moment. For this is the way of form. But love itself is that which never comes and goes.

We never know what form love will choose to take in the future, for there is no love in the future. Love is only now.

We will never be able to resolve or control the movement of love, or use it for our own agenda, as it is infinitely creative and has come here as an representative of the unknown. It is revolutionary and has no bias for oneness over multiplicity or joy over sorrow, and will use whatever form it must in order to seed this world with its qualities.

If you become too fused with a specific form you believe you need love to take, your heart will always break when love recycles that form for something new, which it always will. This is non-negotiable. In this way love is relentless, as it erupts with creativity and the bringing forth of what is new. It is not capable of serving the status quo.

Before you seek to “heal” your heartbreak by way of spiritual processes and techniques, turn first into the vulnerability as it surges, hold the disappointment, and provide a home for the shattered pieces to illuminate and reorganize. Dare to see that this breaking is not an error, but is pure sacred activity, sent from the unseen to dissolve old dreams, so that new forms may emerge.

As another new day is given, which is the true miracle for a human being, please honor the forms of love while they appear, for they are an expression of purity and of wholeness. But allow them their own organic process of death and rebirth. And even if you are not able to allow them to be what they are, they will continue to do so, into eternity, to remind you of how rare it is to take birth in a place where love is alive.

Seek refuge not in love’s forms, but in the field of love itself, that which never comes and goes. For this is what you are.
