Love is love is love.
She asked me, "What would Love do Now?"
I responded, "Love changes everything. Take a moment to return to any past situation. Relive it in your thoughts and ask, what would Love have done then?
"What would a different Choice portend. Going a different route? Choosing another fork in the road for those times when something other than Love did everything that led you to that place you found yourself at. That time you sometimes look back on, half in disbelief, shaking your head thinking, "I was capable of that?"
"What would Love have done then. What would Love do Now? That situation where you had to make a choice. Where one Path seemed fraught with danger but may have contained hidden Love and the other seemed bright with promise but may have contained hidden Hate? When Pain lies beneath a smiling mask as Joy sometimes hides behind tears.
"Since G-d is Love, asking what Love would do is asking what G-d would do.
"How did G-d prove Her Love then. How does G-d prove it Now? Don't beautiful flowers grow in manure? Wasn't Lucifer His most beautiful Angel? The Bringer of Light? Which is true r: death, decomposition, decay and dissolution provide the fuel for Beauty's birth: perceived perfection, physical attraction, social standing and narcissism obscure corruption.
"What did you do then. What are you going to do Now? Was the choice you made, is the choice you're making, what Love did or would do? What G-d would or did do?
"Just thinking about Choices in that perspective causes a shift. Teases the neuro-peptides from the hypothalamus and chemical-based emotions course into cells, activating DNA code. The moment obscures Intention and negates measured thought. Doubts creep in and Fear settles like cold on bones. Love recedes, G-d with her, waiting, watching for an opening.
"With only a choice, Love crashes through Fear like a rock through glass leaving shattered Illusions scattered about. Cleansing Rivers of Light stoke the fires within, revealing G-d. Where She's always been.
"G-d is Love. Changing with the levels of Life's lessons. Challenging Desire. Love takes you higher. G-d wakes you up to the Truth. Love strips the Body, Spirit and Soul. G-d reveals All.
"Open, Naked to the Cosmos.
"Returning to the grind. Taking it all, still open. Raw. Accepting it all: Pain, Pleasure, Anger, Hatred, Happiness, Ugliness, Sensuality, Derision, Heartbreak, Satisfaction, Envy, Despair. Letting it all pass through, leaving only shades of Beauty in its wake. Filled to the brim with Tears and Joy. Shining with Love. Building Bridges of Light into Eternity.
"This is what Love does Now and did then, as it will do in every Now following, as it did do in every Now gone."
She smiled at me and nodded. I smiled back. Then she asked me again, "What would Love do Now?"
I paused, then said, "This."
