I think one of the main reasons we come, as spirits, into this physical realm, is to feel love through our hearts. A good friend recently said, “It’s never wrong to love,” and I agree with him. But sometimes love hurts, too. There’s not one of you out there who doesn’t know this, who hasn’t experienced it first hand. As I’ve said before on this blog, love happens and love can complete itself. This does not make a person “bad” for having, quite literally, a change of heart. We can’t negotiate love, can we? It is or it isn’t. Love is exquisite and mysterious that way.
There is a beautiful Jane Siberry song whose lyrics have given me pause over the years. In it she asks, “… If you could, do you think you would trade in all the pain and suffering? But then you’d miss the beauty of the light upon this earth…” and I think there is so much truth in this. Without the darkness, there is no light.
I believe, to the fiber of my being, that everyone who crosses our paths does so for a cosmic reason: We touch lives and others touch ours for the lessons we came here to learn. It is always right to open our hearts to another. It is always a gift, even when that gift causes us pain. Through it we get to experience “the light upon this earth”.
In another Jane Siberry song she talks, specifically, about learning through love, saying, “Maybe it was to learn how to love, maybe it was to learn how to leave, maybe it was for the games we played. Maybe it was to learn how to choose, maybe it was to learn how to lose, or maybe it was for the love we made… Maybe it was to learn how to fight, maybe it was for the lesson in pride, maybe it was to learn not to lie, or maybe it was to learn how to cry… So take a lesson from the strangeness you feel and know you’ll never be the same and find it in your heart to kneel down and say, I gave my love, didn’t I? And I gave it big sometimes…”
Loving is never wrong, even when you quit loving, even when you quit being loved.
I gave my love, didn’t I? And I gave it big sometimes. And no matter the final outcome, that is always, always right.
Love to you all,
