Love Begins Where You End

I wrote, Love is not about another person.

Love is who we are. Deep down, hidden inside us, wounded, covered up by decisions, is our child’s heart. You know this is true.

Our heart love we were in touch with as a child is true love. We looked at the world through loving eyes. Love is all we saw. We are this child, when we ascend past all we accumulated since.

Love is about another person, when in the mirror of another we glimpse our own love. Relationships are about learning who we are and who we are not, through the mirror of another.

When we are open, we see ourselves clearly reflected in another; when we are closed, we want to break the mirror. We are each other, we are one, we are love. Love with another is the experience of not being separate.
