They say that happiness is not a goal but the whole road to get there, that love will come when you find plenitude, when you are responsible, correct, balanced, when you have money and can maintain a family, or pay the bills. They talk a lot about falling in love, about its effects and the butterflies you feel in your stomach when you see the person you like, that love is finding your soul mate and sharing the rest of your life with him or her. But ¿What happens when we are alone?
A famous proverb says that you are your best friend, you will never be alone. It may sound sad, but in reality loneliness is the basic principle of our existence, we are just a body that holds a spirit, together we travel through time, grow and find ourselves with other bodies; it seems simple and graceless, but this is truly how we find love.
I think about myself and what I learnt the day I was completely alone, away from all the people I love, away from the safety of my home, that’s when my true self began to manifest itself, it grew and just when I thought that my life would end, I voice deep inside me told me a secret that would change my life forever: Love Is Strength.
According to Mark Twain there are two moments in life that are the significantly the most important. The first one is when you are born, and the second when is when you discover why. I finally understood that love was my greatest power and I had to give all I could, open doors, create new realities, project incredible dreams, prove that what we haven´t come to this world just to simply exist, we are here to experiment life, not be afraid of it, to give more than just a grain of sand. We are here because love opened our eyes, because love is above everything, above any social contract and above any human ideology. Love travels through the universe to feed our spirit and help it grow, not just inside of you but through everyone who lives in your space and time.
Truth will set you free but it will also make you mad, words are weapons, emotions are lessons and every reaction is a personal test. That is why balance is so important, because we need to understand right from wrong, each of these has it´s purpose and together they form the path of our lives.
Love was waiting all along even before you were born and it grows around you along with nature, it travels in the wind, it travels in your words, in your emotions in every feeling you have. Love is in the beginning of every story and it is eternal. Love will let you find yourself, a reflection of your being in everything you see, in what you understand and in what you don´t. We live in times of fear, division and terror. But despite all this we are upon one of the greatest moments of human existence, anything can happen and the opportunity to create a new world and to grow from that strength is withing our hands.
It is time to become eternal, to come into the future, to believe in ourselves and to appreciate every being in this planet, because new doors will open and you will have to be ready to enter them. We are upon the highest level of coexistence in world! And Earth is a much more powerful being than any human, it has made it perfectly clear. We can continue to run from our responsibilities or come together with the energy that will transform the universe, because you are a cosmic event, your encounter with everyone else is like the clash of two galaxies, and that force happens so you can live wholly, without fear.
That is why we must love before anything else, because love is the source of everything and you can´t change its name or give a different meaning, love has found you and it will take it will take you down the path of your dreams, love is always constant and your only job is to let its strength flow in everything you do, in they you look at your loved ones, in the spontaneous smile you show strangers when you meet eyes in the street, in every thank you, when you lend a hand, when you cook, when you dace…
There is never enough room to talk about love, because it is everything. So close your eyes, breathe in deeply and let you mind project the most beautiful reality, let it show you all those people that will be in your life for a reason and listen to them, understand them, because together we will travel forever.
Love is peace, freedom and understanding… Love is strength, truth and knowledge.
