Love: a Rant


How much are you willing to love? yourself. the world. each other.

We are at another tipping point in time. We are coming upon a juncture where only love will serve us. These are not namby-pamby words. These are words of power. Love is a powerful force, founded in strength. Love can, and does, and will, change our world(s).

I am angry about injustice and oppression and devastation and greed and war. I am angry through and with the power of love. I see your faces, and your bodies, and your beaches, and your trees and sky and want to shout "I love you!" over and over and over. I see you weary, and wary, and dejected, and defiled. I see you trapped within self loathing or systems of abandonment and greed. I see you slick with black oil or brown with fumes, or gasping for air, or bewildered by noise, or white with fear. I see you. And I see we have to change.

What will we do, each one of us, today? We have it in us, surely as this earth rotates around the sun. We have it in us, surely as a child knows laughter. We have it in us, surely as the waves reach ever for the shore.

I don't know you, but today? Today, I love you. Will you join me? Will you share with me, and with us all, one action you will take to bring the world back into love?

(Love yourselves. Love the cosmos. Love this world.)

Pass it on.

    Thorn, your words are amazing, as always. I think we forget how truly strong love is – that it’s not passive or weak. I think we forget that love can be earthshaking and monumental and so much more than any of our definitions. Thanks for the reminder. Blessed Be.

    Thorn, this is one of the most powerful pieces you have written. Today, I will rest, and take care of myself in a new way by doing so. I do this, so that tomorrow I can start releasing all that holds me to a Place that no longer serves me in my Work. It means walking a road that begins in the darkness of not-knowing with complete Trust, but it is the only way I can fulfill my promise to help Love the World into Being. I have to give up everything, including my own beliefs about what that means. I think I am finally ready. Namaste’.

    Today I will lay down my wariness and my self-consciousness and love myself enough to simply be myself.

    Thankyou for these beautiful words. I try very hard to at least appreciate myself and love where I come from…was there once and loved myself and the world/universe….

    “Today I will lay down my wariness and my self-consciousness and love myself enough to simply be myself.”

    Dawn, that is the best quote I’ve ever heard. Thank you. I repeat my same words to Thorn.

      I feel honored to read the ways in which we will open to love, and keep trying.

      Blessings to you all.
