When It Comes to Love...


When it Comes to Love - Romany Malco Blog
When it comes to love, I live by my favorite Rumi quote: 

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~ Rumi 

This quote clarified a lot for me. My discomfort in vulnerability inhibited my authentic expression of love. It also intercepted much of the love sent my way.

I've created so many barriers over the decades. Today, I spend my time tearing down these barricades. But I'm also learning that love is a lot of things (versatile) and "soul mates" aren't always intimate partners. 

Having a love affair with nature is perhaps the most significant and fundamental love of all. Whoever created nature created you. 
Nature is what WE are. Yet many of us fear nature, so we never see the love and beauty meant for us within it. 

Consider the irony. That's like the soulless seeking a soul mate, the inauthentic wanting to be loved for who they truly are and the barrier builder seeking acceptance. 

I've been guilty of at least two of these in my life. But with time I've found so much to let go of, so much to forgive, so much I could open up to, and in those simple exercises I've discovered so much love to gain.
