My Heart in Your Expanding Heart
And this time was different, and so it felt that way:
There was nothing owed or indebted. The invitation to go deeper inwards or to leave remained very clear. A commitment made without words… A message from heart to heart…
“If I am to hold yours, and you, mine, then we shall do a dance.”
The dance of giving and receiving:
Creating more space to lean into. Never a tug-of-war, or battle. Nothing to hold onto for dear life. Instead, liberation… from all the fears holding back the courageous flow of love. In being held so gently, there came a warm bed to rest. As opposed to an edge that makes the heart pinch and split in two.
Pure enjoyment overcame the space that took some time to grow:
The further away the walls of the heart, the more space to fill with all the things. No need to feel confined in a space that is ever-expanding, growing to envelope all the special ways and secret codes held within another.
And suddenly it all made sense, even if to no one else:
It didn’t have to… it just did… it just is.
