“The loving side”

“Love does not dominate; it cultivates.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I know I am a very different kind of man. I have been called so many things in my relationships; “too sensitive,” intense in all that I feel and do, and overwhelming. But I have come to absolutely love these aspects about myself. 

I used to feel bad when my lovers would say these kinds of things to me, but I have come to realize that what they said and thought had nothing to do with me at all. It was always really about them.

I know that I am a natural lover. I am a Lover of people. I am a Lover of life. But most importantly I am a Lover of my experience in this existence. So it feels so wonderfully natural for me to lean into love and compassion at every turn. 

I have learned in order for me to really get the experience that I want I must be authentic and always willing to play with my own natural proclivities for loving and for expressing this so intensely. So I speak love often and I express love whenever I can. 

These days I have found the most intense love that I have ever experienced. My experience today is more wonderful than I could have ever imagined previously. I have had the fortune in my fifty-one years to be in love several times. Each was so wonderful too. But today I am liberated from all that didn’t feel right before. 

What I feel today comes from my wholeness, not my desire for a lover. So when I confront another that I am interested in I can so easily feel a depth of feeling that is more honest and true than I previously thought possible. Today love feels like such a CLEAR signal right to my heart. My words seem to be inadequate as I write this, so I will just say thank you Universe and I love you. 

I am love. I am joy. I am so very good. And so are you!
