I’d trapped myself in survival thinking, parched, bereft on the rocky shores of my previous unwanted adventures. Life had taken me low, against my will.
When you arrived, unbidden, it was like lightening. You wanted light so you created it. You wanted joy so you became it. You took me by surprise – your enthusiasm for life.
And so I wanted you. I wanted to escape that torn down essence of me. Clinging to the rocks.
I chose you. Your beautiful white light energy. Your way of interacting with the world. Your soulnessness.
I wanted to taste the sweet freedom of not being me for a little while.
I felt betrayed by my own loss and heartache. I had set out to create something new and powerful, but it hadn’t worked out that way. I was drowning in my loneliness. I couldn’t set myself free even though I had tried every personal development and spiritual trick I knew.
I wanted hope. I wanted you.
So I fell in love with you. It was swift and easy. I didn’t keep myself safe, at a distance. Practice due diligence. I honestly didn’t care.
Play the roulette, and roll the dice. Ignore the temptation of a safe considered life.
Being with you helped me be another way in the world. Another way of interacting with the light. I loved it.
I’m touched you let me into your world for just a little while.
I hope that you got out of it as much as I did.
There was no chance it would last. The reasons for the loving were all wrong. For me, lost in heartache and loneliness. And from your side – denial of your dreams and parts of who you are. I wish you well on your journey of this thing called life.
Yet, despite all that.
I broke myself against the wall of my desires and became who I really am.
My love for you set me free.
I loved unconditionally. I chose to.
And so, I let love in. I surrendered to her highest vision.
Let all mortals taste her freedom.
I danced barefoot, arms flung up, in the sunlight.
The love inside you.
The truth of your being.
And now, I see I had it inside me all along. You were the ignition. The spark to my unseen and dormant flame.
So I thank you. You healed me, but really …
I healed myself.
And set myself free.
When you choose love, in any endeavour,
any activity, with any relationship,
you are healing yourself,
and taking yourself to the highest point in your soul.
You redeem yourself and set yourself free.
You are love.

You are amazing!
Thank you Wendy. It was quite an incredible journey with lots of highs and the eventual low that comes with parting. Feeling brave enough now to publish it. 🙂
