LOVE

“Love is our deepest nature, and consciously or unconsciously, each of us searches for love. We often choose such false ways to satisfy this deep hunger. An excessive concentration on our work, achievements, or spiritual quest can actually lead us away from the presence of love. In the work of the soul, our false urgency can utterly mislead us. We do not need to go out to find love; rather, we need to be still and let love discover us.”

I love this picture. I imagine myself reuniting one day with Laureen in the afterlife, and we will stand at the edge of the universe and be awed by its magnificence of color and light and limitless glory and I will kneel before her and shed tears of such inexpressible joy at our reunion.

 

And she will be as she ever was, and as she never could be on this physical plane. Filled with light and joy and love. We will be as two children standing on the shore of forever, with all eternity stretching out before us and the emptiness that I feel in my soul will vanish and I will be whole again and we will stand there in our innocence and in our unbounded happiness and I will see that magical sparkle in her eyes once again and hear the wonderful sound of her laughter once more.

 

And she will sing to me her Universal song and I will smile and know that I am home again.

 

Aho.
