What is love

Beginning with what it is not Being certainly not transience we can slot Calling a spade a spade Love not an exchange or trade ‘I love you provided you reciprocate’ ‘If your look is not endearing, my love will abate’ Moving deeper We see ourselves forgiving the ‘sinner’ Useful no doubt for self healing Yet not love as arising from judgmental feeling The need to forgive owing to injury we perceive Belied expectations miring us in nets ego did weave Once we get to acceptance We get free of words like ‘forgiveness’ or ‘repentance’ Love not the random donation For self satisfaction Not self adulation on the social circuit Proclaiming our perceived merit Love nothing to do with limited thought Ego begot Yet in even these love distortions Diffused and convulsed reflections They still have inherent positivity Steering us towards interconnectivity Doing more good than harm Momentarily entwining hearts warm Now moving on to what love is The divine elixirous fizz Love shining self-existent Standing erect and independent A becoming A blossoming Upon mind-body transcending Non-judging and all embracing Without clinging Simply ceaselessly outpouring We may call it a magnetic electricity Invisible and intuitive instant connectivity With all hearts All within, none apart Divine love energy an impulse pulsating Enlivening, empowering and uplifting Having colourations of beauteous variety Joy, empathy, compassion, bliss & purity Each nuance a definitive transition Marking recognisable ascension And yet each hue As it does renew Imperceptible to thought limited Which is confined to narrowness computed Love being a benign bliss explosion Ignition within renewing in continuation Heightened ecstasy and rapture A transcendence mind cannot capture Love a fulcrum shift Wherein we are no longer loosely adrift A universal connection deep As the elixirous pulse does osmotically seep Into every pore of our being Inside out enlivening & tingling Love a pull magnetic A lived reality vibrant, self-realised & eclectic An innocence simple Our orientation spherical As we imbibe the divine miracle Its delineation ineffable As is-ness of being-ness complete Overflowing with the nectar divine replete Love the only real vibration We automatically align in resonation Being the true essence Of all existence It is That that is permanent Self existent and immanent
