Love makes up the fabric of all that is.
Unhindered, she embraces everything.
She is the scene behind the scenes,
the sparkle beneath the sparkle,
the red in the rose,
the scent in the tree resin,
the buzz of the butterfly wings,
the shimmer of the hummingbird’s feathers,
the silence of the owl's flight,
the gentleness of the deer’s gaze,
the soothing way the tree meets your back,
the air meeting the expansion of your lungs,
the heat on your skin from the fires of the sun,
the water of your blood,
the pulse that beats your heart.
This body is made to hold as much love as we are able to mother ourselves, soften our hearts and open our vessels to the earth codes moving up through the bottom of our feet.
Anything we are not able to love is where we begin the adventure; the journey towards wholeness and well-being. Neither of which have anything to do with perfection.
Perfection is a myth constructed by a society so designed to thrive on made up economics that demands we place a hierarchy of value on the conditions of being human.
Perfectionism is a defense against feeling unsafe, unseen, unloved and untended too. It is required to survived in a culture that values economics over the flaws that spark the fires of creativity in the human soul.
Perfection is myth that sets a storm in the places where we most long to be held in the loving embrace of a nourishing, protective, loving inner parent.
Perfection is the perfect disguise for untended vulnerability that can so easily turn into unmetabolized grief lodging itself in shame or tension of shoulders, stomach and hips.
Wholeness and well-being have nothing to do with any of this.
A sense of well-being is laid in the foundation of a healthy inner mother; a resolve and deep knowing that all of you is worthy of your own love, devotion and respect. A commitment to an honoring of the layers of your inner life, a deep communion with the wisdom of your dreams and emotions, a deep respect for the unconscious life as equal to the rational one, an embracing of your own mystery and a willingness to learn how to tango, cha cha, mambo, salsa, swing and swirl your way between all the parts of you.
Love loves you.
