We all seek love. We need it. It holds us together – literally.
The thing about love is that it grabs our attention even while it takes our breath away.
Love shows us what is already true. It shows us the power lying at the core of everything. A power that ties us together. Links our molecules and energy and fates and well-being. Entangles us like particles moving in response to each other. Wordlessly, remotely, completely bound together forever in a harmonious dance.
Love does have appetites and that makes us fear it as well as long for it. We see it as a double edged sword to be approached with trepidation. But there really is no need.
All appetites are natural. They are just instincts and neither good nor bad. They just are.
We don’t fear our appetite for food. We just know that we have to be in control of it and not vice versa.
Love is the same.
Nothing works without it. It’s like food for our hearts and souls and minds. We can’t be without it. And we aren’t. We are beloved of each other.
