Love will fuel us through all storms

I’ve always known it to be there, somewhere rolling around my skull but not originating there. Like feeling a wind blowing in one moment from the south, then the north, then the west, then the east; until realizing the wind came not from any particular point but was swirling all around as in a chaotic wholeness. And if you sat near many campfires when the wind does this, you have probably experienced those times when no matter where you move the wind keeps changing direction so as to blow smoke right where you are, telling you to continue moving; to never be too comfortable in stagnation where you are or you may be as memorized by the flame’s false love-signal as the bedazzled moth.

Life was never meant to be motionless. We are destined to progress towards our dreams and walk deeply in that which makes our souls sing with praise and delight. Fear would attempt to keep us where we are, afraid of what might happen should we venture onward in our truest calling. Do not let fear corrupt your vision. Stay mindful and motivated by Love and it will fuel us through all storms.

    On the nose. I was struck by the thesis of the science fiction film Interstellar a few years back that love may literally make the world (and universe) go ’round. https://mitchteemley.com/2014/11/11/interstellar-do-not-be-afraid/

      Thanks for your comment and connection, Mark! Interstellar is definitely in my top 5 favorite films 🙂

      I love that message. I’m currently working on a book about a scientist who loses all 5 senses but discovers a more powerful sense he utilizes that changes the world (some sort of metaphor for love).

        Hi Dylan, thanks for your literally LOVEly blog!
        You writing about someone who lost all senses to discover “the sixth sense”, reminded me of an article i wrote 4 months ago:
        https://sodarshanchakrakriya.wordpress.com/2018/09/15/the-comfort-to-know-that-any-tragedy-may-even-lead-to-your-higher-purpose/

        And about the theme of your blog:
        It very slowly dawns upon me that I think that the solution may be not the concept of love which so often is misunderstood for excitement, but maybe it is neutrality – a state of accepting the right of everything to be as it is. This makes it much easier for me to deal for example with brutal people, because I am not required to even love them, but simply to accept that they currently are on a different path than mine.

        I think we all understand this when thinking of wild and dangerous animals: A bear looks cute, but we know that cuddling it in love would not do us as good as simply to let it go its own ways – live and let live.
