A few years ago I was pondering on falling in love. As with all strong feelings, we humans often feel that we need to ‘do’ something about them, when actually they are simply there to be experienced. Which strong feelings are you currently experiencing?
There’s nothing you can DO about
being in love
You just ARE
And that’s it.
You can try all you like to shelve it
to push it away
to get over it…
but it just won’t work.
You can even try to hang your hopelessly loved-up little heart in the back of your winter wardrobe, deluding yourself that it will be disguised by all of your new fangled seasonal purchases
But you are a fool, let’s face it!
Nothing but a wide-eyed smitten kitten!
You, dear friend, have been struck by an enigmatic force far greater than anything your willpower alone can fight against.
Love cannot be denied
Love bowls you over
and knocks you for six
and sends you head over heels
and happens quite unexpectedly half the time
and that’s the whole frigging
point of it
all you can DO is to
Let it BE
