“Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outwards together in the same direction”
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery (author of The Little Prince)
It was many years ago that I first heard this quote by this favourite author of mine, and although it struck a deep chord in my heart back then, I did not truly understand its meaning until now.
What does it truly mean to love so deeply, with such strength and conviction that the focus of that love shifts entirely towards creation?
That is the journey I have embarked upon. The journey of complete and total unconditional love, the kind with no strings attached. This is the kind of love that is so steadfast in its existence that the sole purpose of loving is to act in service and co-create a better world. This is the kind of love that is so expansive and freeing that the thought of even attempting to contain it within the bounds of any standard form of relationship seems absurd.
This love accepts, grows, expands and continues to give no matter what. This love is explosive in it’s creativity, and yet at the same time so balanced in it’s gentle perfection. This love allows growth but does not force. It embraces change but does not push.
This is the kind of love that brings out the highest potential, the kind that wants only to serve and create only in joy. This love has a life of its own, and all it wants is to radiate peace, joy and harmony throughout the universe.
This is the love that makes the soul sing, that gently pries closed hearts open again. This is the love that trusts, honours and respects with raw honesty and deep vulnerability such that even fear itself bows down with grace and humility.
This love destroys expectations, obliterates limiting beliefs, and cannot exist in confined boundaries. This is the love of true presence, in its moment-by-moment expression of itself.
And this is the love I have been so blessed to have witnessed and experienced within myself.
For that, I will be eternally grateful.
