I am waiting. I am ever waiting to bring the world to the perfection that is longed for in hope, joy, and possibility.
Do you feel the same as I do?
Enigma, Return to Innocence
I await for greater forces (men, women or otherwise) of greater prudence, courage, self-control, justice and faith. I await their direction, their demonstrations, and crowd-roaring triumphs over impossibilities, danger, and humiliation.
I am waiting to do amazing things – more amazing than I can begin to understand or imagine. Because within me are beautiful, true, and good things. They move with such precision, certainty, and counterpoint. Like the heavens. Like celestial perfection. Like a clockwork of stars and galaxies.
I am not alone in these anticipations and aspirations.
And you are not alone in yours.
There is untested strength, courage, and beauty in our common will. So much unrevealed awesome in our common destiny.
We need begin for the hour is late. We have lost ourselves in useless distractions. We have uselessly agonized over our unfulfillment.
We do not need more things. You. Me. We need less emptiness in our hearts. We need less dishonesty. With ourselves. With others.
We need to sanctify ourselves in love. Because we are nothing – if we, ourselves, are not love. Because love is, has always been, and will always be – what we are. Wait for no one!
Do I deceive myself when I allow myself to feel my deep hunger for love? Do you?
Has not love been everything for me- when I allowed myself to feel truly the things that I feel? You?
And yet, nothing I could do would purchase it and my happiness. With one single exception- love.
Do you feel the same?
Or, maybe, my words fail to sue for peace against the armed gates of your heart. Maybe, the walls of your heart are proud and tall like the walls of Troy.
I am of no consequence to you. I do not pretend to have wisdom for you. But who are you?
You, yourself, are of consequence to you. This is indisputable. And your emptiness longs to be filled with joy. With you. With love.
Just as my emptiness must be filled with love.
And, quite possibly, we shall find joy together. In love. With love. Through love. In the unity of our common will and destiny to be ourselves truly and completely.
If you can do one thing just for you today… allow yourself to feel everything as you watch this short, uplifting video:
