Recognition; steady, radiating, calm.
Who am I?
I am love.
I am my sister’s laugh, my brother’s sideways smile, my mother’s grief, my father’s pride. My best friend’s tears, my partner’s promise.
Catching off guard, now and then, an overwhelming swelling and rising of the heart, the chest, for nothing and no-one in particular. Unconditional love for this life, with all its ups and downs, uncertainties and fears, is it unconditional if it comes and goes in waves? detach for a second. Step back and look; with each breath you give yourself permission to be, for your atoms - colliding with energy, with potential - to take up the space that was set aside for them when you entered this world, as an entity, as a being.
So be. Look down to your feet, rooted on the earth. Mother Earth.
Here you are,
Here it is.
