Loving Now

Fell asleep sitting under the oak tree... nice breeze, low 60's, fed a whole loaf of bread to a variety of birds and squirrels after pruning trees and shrubs. Had the last beer, propped up the throbbing hip and knee, and blissfully drifted off. Then awoke, and came in to write:

Loving Now

Is there any other way to love you…
Save to love you as I know you right now?

Can I enjoy you beyond the limits of this circumstance…
Is there some other dimension that we can experience one another in?

Will the confines of this aspect always be the definition of our knowledge…
Or will not each succeeding moment bring with it some fresh description?

Hence, it seems to me… Now is the time to love…
In this here and present.

Within the confines of this combination of elements,
I find myself loving you.

Without question of, interest in, or concern about…
The setting that awaits my next opportunity... to love you still.

John-Michael

Did you write that for me ? IF you did I am so flattered.
Whether you did or not it's beautiful .

It lifted my spirits just reading it.

Thank you .

I wrote in response to the dictate of the Muse interpreting my soul.

I trust the Spirit that directs My Muse to complete the communication link with the One for whom it is intended.

I have never been disappointed in that trust.

I've been enjoying so much your recent posts, not that I don't usually enjoy them, but it has been so precious to hear a man who can be a man yet still be in touch with the sacredness of intimacy and love.

loving now is important as no-one knows what tomorrow holds..... however i do believe that those with whom we feel a connection may have been part of our 'circle' in previous lifetimes, or in other dimensions.......... it hs been said that there are only two emotions fear and love and i know which one i prefer to feel................... so i am trying to alleviate all the fears i have now from whenceever they came......
heres hoping you are only feeling love and have no fears...

It is my understanding that the definition of complete enlightenment is "the absence of both Fear and Desire." Neither Desire for that which we do not presently have, nor any Fear of loss of what is presently ours. Leaving us in complete acceptance of all of the wonder and provision that is in our present state. Not bad!
