Love is out of the closet...
Now love was never in the closet to begin with....except in our illusory minds! There are so many moments and opportunities to love...hmm. I'm going to start now by loving myself...both of me: Jim and Jimi. Did you know that shizophrenia can be fun? I love me, both of me... all of me, for being the being that I am...and having the courage and openness and innocence to receive the love of God, to be the love of God and to share the love of God with you. When I look back at my life, there were many things that I did not feel good about...and I was really not very loving toward myself and consequently toward others. And things did finally shift so that I could begin to see some good things about myself...and begin to feel a little better about myself.
Years ago, I remember entering an old vacant Catholic church and bravely...quite bravely lit just one little candle for myself. Isn't this sweet?...to just do a little kind thing for myself was so sweet...and of course I had no idea what would result from this act...cause I really didn't believe in God at the time. But I lit the candle anyway. Such a simple little gesture...reaching for a match, choosing a candle...and lighting it. A tiny, personal little act...a little ritual. Hmm. Somehow, maybe this was a reflection of a tiny candle being lit in my own heart. So sweet...to consider that we all have light in our hearts...perhaps from a tiny candle...lit by God just for us.
I like envisioning this...that all of us have light from little candles in our hearts. You know, inspite of everything... there is a lot of love in the world...and maybe it comes from these candles in our hearts. I love the love in Jim(i)s heart...and I love the love in your heart.
Yes...I believe that love was never in the closet in the first place!
Loving and blessing you always...jim and Jimi.
