Arena Of Love

"The arena of love doesn't make us want to fight, it's an exercise in stamina. How many punches can we avoid when love is the ultimate prize? We are not fighting with another person, we are only fighting for our right to be loved the way we want to be loved. We're giving that person a chance to love us on our terms.

We can try to love unconditionally, but for all intents and purposes, conditions become attached regardless, thus the struggle ensues. Do we love that person more than we love ourself? Do we want the best for that person as we want the best for ourself?

We love the other person as we love ourself - loving the roses and the thorns - the cliffs and the crags - the tremors and the stillness - that is the real beauty of loving - learning that the fight doesn't mean to throw our hands up, but to put our gloves down and stay in the ring. Fight for love 'til your last breath meets your first breath."

And in the space between those two breaths...

Love is found,

Without agenda
or condition
or desire

save to be itself.

An open flower

a gifted fragrance
two souls.

Sending you my love
and thanks for your beauty and your light,

I am entralled by the river of love flowing through you like the gentle force of nature. As the river flows, it bends, but does not break. The love that emanates from your Soul washes over me and gives me back to myself.

Thank you for being such a benevolent contributor to my inner and outer world.

Peace my brother.
