How will you give love to yourself so that you can be a better lover?
What does love look/feel/smell/taste like?
Isn’t it interesting that the word ‘devil’ is lived backwards? What does that mean to you?
In that last question… devil/lived, it occurred to me that when we linger in our past, be it years ago or just yesterday, we have already lived it; It’s gone. It is history and can not be undone nor lived the same again. Should we choose to cling to what is past, that devil, that trickster, will stir confusion and ‘bedevilment’ into our living in the present moment. So… in my conclusion of this whole devil/lived word thing, is. Live for each moment or be be-deviled by what you think you shoulda, coulda, oughta, have done. What can you do right now?
There is no dismissing history
It brings you here as you are
loaded, a full blown human- being
with a past that has a story
You are not just your history
it’s how you live right now
not how you lived what’s gone
redemption is yours for the asking
Yesterdays lead the way to today
Substance builders for right now
To linger in the past holds you captive
keeps you away from the service to life
To serve life is to be of life
To serve life is to give of life
heart open, fully present
Lived is the devil gone by
his trick is to remind you
to unchain yourself from the past
Release the evil and live
Your life depends on it
