Love is Your Compass

Love is Your Compass

Love is Your Compass


Let your personal self soften so it gives way to the impersonal.
Let the tears flow, but don’t let them go unseen.
Let yourself receive the love that you yearn for.
Ask for it.
Claim it.
Reveal your neediness and deep yearning for love.
It is primal.
Eschew the seeking of security in the known,
in favor of the risk of annihilation in the unknown.
What gets lost is not needed.
What is left is true.
Truth can only be felt when the hard exoskeleton of misunderstanding
melts into the oneness of all things.
This is what you long for.
It is also what you fight against.
The time for wrestling for control is over.
Your image and looking good is shattered like a mirror on the floor.
The pieces can never be reassembled without the cracks showing.
Instead, go naked, without image or reflection.
Let love lead the way.
No matter how scary it feels or how much your mind protests.
Vulnerability is your new land full of exhilarating freedom.
Let love be the compass you use to take you home.

    I love this poem. It speaks to all of the stickiness and edges and joy of love and vulnerability. I am hoping to see if I can format it with the photo to print. Thank you for sharing.
