What you are in love with,
what seizes your imagination
will affect everything.
It will decide
what will get you out of bed in the mornings,
what you will do with your evenings,
how you spend your weekends,
what you read,
who you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
Fall in love,
stay in love,
and it will decide everything.”
I’m not sure I have anything to add to this poem.
It’s all there, the truth of it.
I guess I could add that, of course, the first step is deciding what you are in love with. You have to be in love with something before the love can decide the rest of it, yes?
And I can also add the obvious, that we fall in and out of love all the time, so one day it might be a person, another day a political movement, another day yoga…or maybe all three, and more, yes?
Of course, I can add that we are love. That we can be and reflect love in the world ourselves, raising the vibration of all around us to be and reflect that same love.
When you fall in love one thing leads to another.
Especially when what you fall in love with is life.
“Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
