The following is an inspired writing.  These happen when I am led to my notebook and must allow the words and ideas to flow, exactly as they are.  These types of writings are not always grammatically correct, nor academically organized.  Depending on how choppy they are, I do my best to edit for clear understanding, while leaving the original word flow and ideas intact…..

*****************************************************************************IIs it possible to feel many aspects of love at the same time?

Yes, absolutely.

You may feel incredible highs and painful lows.  Things may feel as if they are out of your control.

They are.

Love is not something that can be controlled or put into a box.  It must be allowed to breathe and show up as whatever it looks like on any given day, in any given minute.

Sometimes it is all gussied up and dressed to impress, putting its best foot forward.

And sometimes it is ugly and snarly, trusting those closest to see all of its sides.

You cannot predict what side of love you will see from someone, and when.

It may feel warm and fuzzy, and it may feel like an emotional tornado.  If it normally feels warm and fuzzy, you may be left wondering what the heck happened.

If you’ve experienced a tornado, but love normally feels all warm and fuzzy- it is possible that it may just get dressed up for you again.

On the other hand, love may also have a few lessons to learn about what is acceptable behavior, just like a child.

If you allow love too much freedom to be just as it is, you may get stomped on.  In this case, it can be hard to recover from love’s stormy behavior.

So what do you do?

Guide love- by showing up in its highest form at every moment to the best of your own ability.

And then love yourself enough to know if it is being as honoring of you as it is of its own wild desires when it is coming through someone else, and choose how you wish to interact with it from there.

This is the most you can do.

Love, though it is wild in nature, does need to be refined and taught to be socially acceptable.

One cannot just let everything hang out and call it love.

There are guidelines for love, just like all other things.

It can’t be tamed, but it is expected to be kind.  Or it’s not being love.
