“Whatever satisfies the soul is truth.” ~walt whitman 1819 -1892
As my sister goes off on an adventure to find and immerse herself in the new-to-her waters of the Mediterranean (thank god for spellcheck) I am content to stay close to home today, to listen hard to my soul’s heart and to write this love letter to life.
Anything can become regular, even traipsing around France – when you do it long enough. Isn’t that strange? It seems even an adventure collapses if you adventure all the time!
As I reflect on this Frenchy-French journey that is quickly coming to a close I am recognizing that among all the new and amazing things I have been a part of there is one constant, one thing that is neither new or old but always exciting. It is the Love I carry.
I carry with me always great Love for my sister who is my traveling companion. I carry new Love for the many friends I have made. And I carry with me constantly a Love of self which grounds and directs me.
These many Loves float me high above any situation. It is within the power of all these Loves combined I find confidence and joy to know all is well.
From within this Love I pay better attention to my own personal needs and find I am better able to recognize the needs of others. Winning for everyone is the prize from within this kind of Love.
And I am so grateful as I recognize – right now in this short moment – my soul’s heart has become my own.
Where do you find love?
