Love. How do you explain love to someone who's never experienced it? What is love?
It is an opening. A deep understanding of the root of life, on a subconcious level. It is beauty. Beauty like that which you have never seen with your eyes nor heard with your ears. It is a connection, a knowingness. It is seeing yourself reflected in another, and knowing your own inner beauty. It is a strength. A strength that wells up in the core of your being. A mighty power of will that cannot be defeated. It is vulnerability, but not weakness. It is courage and freedom, and innocence. It is Fierceness and joy. The leap of faith that takes the Eagle off the mountaintop into the sky soaring amongst the clouds into the twilight of the sun.
It is acceptance. It is joy. It is sadness. It is what makes life worth living. It is something that can never be taken from you. It is what I feel inside.
Happiness is not a place you can be travel to. It is not something that can be bought. Or sold. It is a spiritual experience attained through living each moment with love, grace and gratitude.
Anaya, I love you. Thank you for teaching me to live my life with Love. And for teaching patience. And compassion. Because of your teaching I often walk the path of happiness, even when I miss you.
