When we love others sometimes we experience hurt. Perspectives and attachments such as betrayal and blown expectations can be devastating. And we tend to cling to the hurt. We poke at the wound as though somehow being reminded will “save us” from it happening again. But it doesn’t. It just causes us to suffer and robs us of our light.
When it hurts and you’re tempted to pick at the sore place in your heart, remember. This is the Home of the Beloved. The Beloved has dwelt there long before your birth and will never leave you. It’s never hurt you. Its Face is reflected upon anyone you’ve ever loved and those you haven’t. Even upon your own reflection.
Love this Beloved with the deepest abandon, as you’ve always wanted to. Let the hurt remind you your Beloved is there waiting behind the bruise. Instead of poking the pain, express your love to this Beloved. Let go of the pain and sink in the Love that’s there. Be healed, for the Light of the Beloved shines for you. Always. And live without fear.
