Leis of Love
I do not deal with the world. I love it. I do not deal with you. I love, not deal. I do not cope. I love. I know that love matters, makes a difference. Nothing else does. Nothing else can. Anything but love is a band-aid that falls off. Is love so hard for you that you cannot give it when it is required?
And it is always required.
Consider your heart a beach ball. It is much too large to stay in your chest. It wants to bounce out. It wants everyone to catch it. First, you must throw it. Expel the love in your heart. Let your love be the ball that bounces over the notes of music so that everyone can follow the song of the universe along with you.
Let the love in your heart balloon out, such a huge balloon that, like the Moon, it is seen from everywhere. What an easy thing to let the balloon of your love rise and rise and rise and alight you know not where.
Let the love in your heart be a mist that rises from the ground.
Let the love in your heart be the love that it is. Leave it unregulated. Love is not meant to wear a starched uniform. It is meant to wear a lei. It is meant to be a lei that you present to all who come to you. No one crosses your path by accident. They were meant to come before you precisely so they would be there for you to bequeath leis to.
Whether you sit on a throne or sweep the streets, it is your privilege to bequeath leis of love. The flowers are gathered from your heart. You are generous with them. You who weave the flowers into a lei are weavers of love.
Is there something better you have to do?
All the leis of love you give, you put at My feet. The world is My altar, and you find Me easily enough. You will find Me everywhere. That is not just rhetoric. There is no place on Earth or in Heaven where I am not. I am the Heart of all Beings. I am All Beings. I am rampant on Earth. Have the eyes to see, and the ears to hear.
Beauty and music fill the Earth. They strike the chord of love. They are the Pied Pipers of love. Follow them. They will lead you to Me. In fact, I lead you to Me. If you would but follow, you will become whole. That is, you will know your Wholeness. You will know of what you are made. You will know Who abides in your heart and in the hearts of all.
There is One heart. It is Mine, and I gave it to you, not just pieces of it, but all of it. You already have My heart, but I will offer it to you again. Here, take My heart. Use it. It is your inheritance. You have no other. Why would you possibly want another heart? My heart, given to you, is the Open Sesame. It is the Open Sesame that you must open for all the world to see, so that they may see themselves displayed in the openness of your heart. Your heart is to open, and your heart, which is Mine, is to open the world wide, so that the only mystery of life will be: How can anything else but love seem to exist in the world? There is nothing else for your heart to do but to love the world, and love it and love it and love it more.
