For a long time I knew that I desired a relationship based on SACRED LOVE. What does the word sacred mean? “Sacred is something that is held in high regard. Something beautiful and untarnished. A thing that is left undisturbed so as to be an Inspiration to others. Something loved and revered”. That describes it PERFECTLY! The part of this definition that resonates so deeply with me is SO AS TO BE AN INSPIRATION TO OTHERS. That is so important to inspire other people to show them that we can have beautiful love relationships. That they are real. That they do exist and here is an example for you to see. It’s about what you demonstrate and show to yourself, your partner and the world.
GREAT LOVE is very pure it cuts right through all the illusions of fear, lack, scarcity to the truth at the center of our being.
One of my all time favorite quotes about love comes from the movie “Moulin Rouge” by the brilliant Baz Luhrmann. “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return”. I am beginning to understand that there are a lot of people in this world who don’t realize they cut themselves off to some of the most magical and wonderful experiences of love. They think they will be safe and protected behind the wall they have created around their heart. However, once their heart and soul has had a taste of GREAT LOVE there is no going back. Once you know even a little, how wonderful true love can be, you can never deny yourself that pleasure ever again. The next step is to be courageous and let it happen.
This week’s picture comes directly from the beauty and sacredness of Mother Nature…truly amazing!!!
“Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.”
