Don’t turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That’s where the light enters you. ~ Rumi

People in Trees by Yaser Almajed.

Dear Human:
You’ve got it all wrong.
You didn’t come here to master unconditional love.
That is where you came from and where you’ll return.

You came here to learn personal love.
Universal love.
Messy love.
Sweaty Love.
Crazy love.
Broken love.
Whole love.
Infused with divinity.
Lived through the grace of stumbling.
Demonstrated through the beauty of… messing up.

You didn’t come here to be perfect, you already are.
You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous.
And then to rise again into remembering.

But unconditional love? Stop telling that story.
Love in truth doesn’t need any other adjectives.
It doesn’t require modifiers.
It doesn’t require the condition of perfection.

It only asks that you show up.
And do your best.
That you stay present and feel fully.
That you shine and fly and laugh and cry and hurt and heal and fall and get back up and play and work and live and die as YOU.

Its enough.
It’s Plenty.

~ Courtney Walsh

Dear Human

Quotes, Themes, Unity

Come with me into the heart inside the heart,
the world inside the world.
Our roots growing deep into cosmos,
in all directions.
