I would like to open up a discussion about love. We have personal sexual love between two people, a parent’s love for a child, a child’s love for a parent, a person’s love for a friend, love for a hobby, a piece of music, or a painting, or a poem, the list goes on and on. And then we have the Universal Love energy that shows up as magic, as miracles, as wonder.
Simple and Complex
Sometimes love appears simple, and sometimes it appears in a very complex way. When it is simple, it seems obvious. Or is it? I might say “I love that book”, but do I actually love it, or do I appreciate the powerful impact and talent of the writer, or the intelligence of the prose, maybe it is the intense feeling I get from the narrative such as a feel good factor or a darkness that makes me think?
I will also say “I love you” to a person. Those words have not always come easily to me, for various reasons. At an almost forgotten time, when my eyes were very much closed to a lot of things, I was lucky enough to have a breakthrough moment. Historically, this was known as a breakdown, but renamed and repacked, cleaned, polished and shining in its new loving incarnation, it becomes a more manageable and acceptable episode.
What I believe came to me was real, pure, love, that pushed its way through the layers of protective armour that I had built over the years. It came from within, no doubt whatsoever. Its little seeds had remained deeply buried, awaiting the correct moment to burst open. So, for me, this is the most important one, the one I left out of the original list, the Love we have for ourselves, the one that gestates, births and nourishes all other aspects of love outside of us.
Jools L Williams is a seeker, a sleeper slowly waking up after single motherhood and walking the treadmill in corporate. She is a mother, a grandmother, a friend, a dog servant, nature lover, Earth keeper, energy worker, tarot learner, erstwhile Shamanic novice. And sometimes, none of the above. Sometimes it’s nice to be still, silent and do or be nothing. Likes driving her car, playing on the swings, talking to trees and doing daft dancing round the kitchen to catchy beats. She has a facetious sense of humour and works really hard to keep a motormouth in check. Favourite people are those with compassion, and a clever and crazy sense of humour. Second to all dogs of course.
