THE TALK OF LOVE


31  july  2011   >  15/6   >   Devil/Lovers

 

What small thing might you do today to honor love?

What is getting in the way of you doing what you set out to do?

What are you going to do about that?

 

 

The last day of July gives itself to the Devil and the Lovers.   It’s all about relationship, with yourself, with other, with life and the world.  Loving relationship has a way of pulling on your strings and bedeviling you.  There is alway a challenge in the invitation of love.   It will gather the deep issues of what really matters on those core heart feeling, and toss in some bedevilment that forces you to address these issues.  You get to find out just how well you negotiate relationships.  So …how ARE you doing?

Love is a Hell of journey… pun intended.   Love is a tender heart.  Love is all that ever mattered

Love is everywhere all the time

It is witness to your giving

 

Love pours itself into a thimble

it is a riptide within your ocean

 

Love lingers in betrayal

it knows the darkness

 

Love caresses your soul

it knows the light

 

Love is everywhere all the time

it is witness to your taking

 

Love surrenders everything up

it is unconditional

 

Love shelters the storms

it will Be when nothing else is

 

Love calls you to it’s altar

it holds you sacred

 

Love is everywhere all the time

it is witness to your receiving

 

Love’s desire is to give without expectation.

Can you expect nothing from Love and give nothing other than Love?

  3. Beautiful poem, very articulate thoughts as well. “…Love’s desire is to give without expectation/Can you expect nothing from love and give nothing but love?” Too many regard love as some sort of drug; these last two lines of yours hold a wonderful secret–a key of sorts. In the Tarot, the Devil card and the Lovers card have always seemed to me to be sort of photo negatives of one another: the former being forced, needy, conditional love (have you ever noticed the chains on those peole are loose and could be easily removed?) The later, of course, expresses love’s true form…
