A few weeks ago, Jonathan invited me to write a guest post for his beloved blog. I sit down to write, and am overwhelmed by love.
Love surges in my throat. Pressed back by a wagging Finger of Doubt.
“You want to write about what?” says Finger. He raises one semi-elegant eyebrow.
“Love,” I whisper, looking down at my shoes. “I want to write about love.”
“You realize this is a business blog, right?” Finger adjusts his tie and frowns. “Business. Not love.
“Write about how to make brilliant decisions. Or about intuitive strategies for creative entrepreneurs. Write about productivity and procrastination. Be practical. Be useful.”
I think: Finger of Doubt loves me. He doesn’t want me to blow it. But he doesn’t get it, either.
“Love,” I say, glancing at him out of the corner of my eye. “Everything you’ve suggested? It’s rooted in love.
“Brilliant decisions? Love. Intuitive strategies? Love.
“Productivity, procrastination, presidential gravitas—love, love and love.”
Finger sighs. Shrugs. Wipes a speck of dust off his impeccable sleeve.
Glides off to take care of business.
And I pick up my pen to write.
Here, dear Readers of Jonathan’s wonderful blog, is my love-letter to you.
You are beautiful! So beautiful, I could sit and gaze at you all day and drown in wonder as night falls and Time dissolves.
You are magnificent.
You hold the sky as lightly as a bubble in the palm of your hand.
You, my friend, are the light that shines through the tender green of this leaf and brings eternity into focus.
You are the restless power of the sea, and the yielding boundary of the shore. You are the freedom of wild geese on the far horizon.
You turn your elegant head and the Earth spins on her axis.
You are all that is Necessary, and Sufficient.
You dream the stars from their home in the belly of the Earth.
Your circle of inner selves is the crown that shelters, the lap that cradles.
The bead of sweat on your fingertip nourishes the whole, hungry world.
What will you do, with all this power?
Who will you be, when you see your true reflection?
Come visit the Pool of Remembering with me.
Even a puddle will do. Come, see your true reflection.
Everything conspires to show you your Self.
Everything conspires to make you visible.
Will you rise on the horizon in the Land of Wagging Fingers?
Will you become a Pool of Remembering for them too?
Write the truth of your being on your body. With your naked finger. Write:
I am beautiful!
I am magnificent!
I am you! And you! And you!
Write it! Sing it! Say it!
I am love. We are love.
Our business—O, our business is love.
