“If Not Love, Then What?” #ThrowbackThursday Oct 12, 2012


I wish there was a switch I could use to turn Love on.

Turn it on within myself, within everyone I see, within everything in the world.

I wish it was one of those dimmer switches, so I can deliberately turn it all the way up…

…then I’d break it off so it could never be used again.

That will mean Love is All The Way Turned Up for all time.

I wish it was like a touch lamp, and I could just put my hand on people and they automatically feel Love.

And Loved.

And Loving.

I wish everyone was aware that Love is like Light.

We live in darkness without it and are unable to accomplish even the most mundane tasks.

Unless you see the world through love filled eyes, you are like a blind man who swears he can see, asking to take control of the car.

I wish I can move beyond blindness disguised as the attachments, the stuff, and the limitations I’ve taken on while I’ve been here.

So I could turn Love on.

I just wish to love. And I just wish for everyone to love.

And that which is wishing is confused by how this is not our way.

“If it’s not love, then what?” It asks.

“Love…and everything will love you in return.” It advises.

“Be love. Speak love. Do love.” It demands.

“Faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is LOVE.” It reminds.

I don’t want to think about it. I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to write about it.

I only wish to see it.

I only wish to be it.

I only wish to feel it.

I wish we weren’t so fooled.

I wish we all knew that Life perpetually loves.

I wish we would all stop looking for it, and working to earn it, and fighting over it…and wishing for it.

Just love.

    Kenajos is wishing for something that someone reading this has. Would you please share it with all of us? Would you let us know where that little switch is? Is it a little dimmer switch somewhere near our heart, which we could nudge a little to bring all of us into the warm light of love, the warming light of the reality that we really aren’t separate?

    You’re already doing it!
    You’re part of the compassion revolution. As from one candle to the next, the light and love passes from one to the next. The glow is for everyone to marvel at.
    Just keep dancing love.
    Just keep being love.

    Yes! Let Love take the wheel of that car.
    The blind have been driving us crazy, and while it’s been fun, it’s time for a REAL RIDE!!!
