Recently I have been struggling with the loving the idea of impermanence. That everyone and everything we love will eventually no longer exists in its physically form.
I became sad thinking about it and then a wise friend asked me what is was that I was feeling sad about.
I sat and thought about it for a moment.
“I don’t know. I guess it makes me question is it worth to love even if it’s impermanent? That one day, minute or second it will leave me.”
And then it hit me. We do not love to receive, to expect anything in return. We love to grow and nourish our heart. We love because it’s our duty to love however painful the story we create in our mind.
It is love that leads us to peace.
If we purely love from our heart we always love from a place of impermanence and non-attachment.
Love is our natural state of being. Love does not attach itself to anything or anyone. Love continues to opens us up to who we really are.
Love is the light in each one of us. As we continue to open our heart we become closer to the light. We discover who we always have been. Love will guide us if we have the courage to let us lead us.
Now I realize we need impermanence to love. Do not expect to be loved, just love.
