Hecato says, ‘I can teach you a love potion made without any drugs, herbs, or special spell - if you would be loved, love.’”
Seneca, Moral Letters, 9.6
After sitting for an hour or so this morning, I couldn’t.
However, when applying love and a desire to understand those same circumstances, it seemed the end point of “helping the situation” came more easily into being.
Funny that this topic comes up on the very day that Rev. Bee and I will be attending an elevation ceremony of someone with whom there was once much love shared. Now, there is none… but after today’s lesson, I trust that if no one makes the first move in the spirit of love, the rifts will never be healed. Gods be good, I can be a conduit of that love… be it applied to another being, or to myself.
Maybe love isn’t all one needs, contrary to the opinion of The Beatles…
… but I believe that while love in it’s stand-alone form isn’t all one needs, it’s presence and necessity in our lives and relationships is absolute. Whether focused inwardly, outwardly, or any combination therein, always love.
(See y’all tomorrow)
