Love’s Invitation

Love’s invitation
Is everywhere
At all times
In your life, your actions, in the world you see and feel
It lies hidden in every experience
Even the cruelty
That makes you turn away in shame and rage
In the horror and suffering
In the very things that make the righteous mind scream NO!
Even there, when you dive down to the deepest, most tender level
You will find love

The broken hearted lover
Is the most beautiful being of all
The one who wears their broken heart openly
Without shame or denial
But says ‘Yes I am smashed open
By the waves, by the suffering, by the loss, by the helplessness,’
This one is the true human being
For they have shed all the falseness and dissolved the mask
And now they live in the exquisite open splendor
Of the razor’s edge
Where brokenness and beauty have become
Love itself

The invitation is everywhere
All the time.

    “For they have shed all the falseness and dissolved the mask
    And now they live in the exquisite open splendour”
    So precious. Thank you for these words. Beautiful poetry.
