The Gifts of Loving

 

She asked me what I get from loving her?
It took a while for me to understand what she was asking.
Not why do I love her, not what about her do I love?
What do I get from loving her, what are the gifts for me?
This was a fascinating question, it really turns things around. Where are you in loving someone? It changes the way we look at loving, at being in relationship. It becomes an incredible barometer of presence, of consciousness, of intimacy, of growth, of personal exploration, and of love.
It changes the perspective of love. I love for me.
I love you for me.
And the more I love, the deeper I love, the more I see what that love is for me.
The more I give, the more I see what giving brings up in me.
The more I share, the more I see what the sharing opens in me.
The more vulnerable I am, the more I see the depth in me.
I love you because in that love I am inspired.
I love you because in that love I feel the sacred in me.
I love you because in that love I open my heart.
I love you because in that love I see the strength within me.
I love you because in that love I am able to give freely.
I love you because in that love I am more creative.
I love you because in that love I make a choice to love, each day.
I love you because in that love I am able to love.
I love you because in that love I learn where I can’t love.
I love you because I learn where I hold back.
I love you because I see where I struggle.
I love you because I see where my pain is.
I love you because I see where I can’t receive.
I love you because of what you allow me to be, in loving you.

When we turn loving inwards and we acknowledge the gifts for ourselves in that we step into a space of power, of choice.
It’s a space of The Heart.
It’s a space that grows, expands and deepens.
It’s a space where limits fall away.
It’s a space where I can Become Love.
