Love now  

Do not wait until you are perfect in order to love or allow yourself to be loved. Do not wait until you are perfect in order to accept others or allow others to accept yourself.

This is the huge lie of the devil, you see. Do you see it? The Evil One is very real.

Most people do not love others, simply because they fear the vulnerability of allowing their imperfect selves to be loved.

People don't necessarily want perfection, rather what people want is perfection in love.

Do not wait. Love now.

Love God. Love yourself. Love others.

Now.

This is the only way to truly grow, otherwise you will be forever stunted by your insecurity.

Will there be hurt? Of course, but it's part of process. Give into process, and you will eventually feel better/more whole. Suffering eventually gives way to increased capacity for life, increased capacity for desire. You learn there is something bigger and more wonderful than your self!

Do not cling to your wounds or they will remain infected (if not get worse). Allow them breathing room, so they can take their natural course and heal.

It's better to be imperfect and loved, rather than conscientious and fearful. Is not desire for love the reason for human conscientiousness in the first place? Is not vulnerability needed for there to be love? Too often we try to put love in a box, so we can control it! Do not be afraid. Let go. There will always be an heir of uncertainty, but this allows room for faith. Love only occurs in faith, and when love occurs fear is greatly overcome!

Essentially, regardless of level of suffering in one's life, NOTHING will ever replace the human void which God (alone) was meant to fill. God is not an option or a complement, HE IS A PRIORITY WHO WILL FILL ALL VOIDS IF SIMPLY ALLOWED (this is what I learned).






"Frail" -Jars of Clay

Convinced of my deception
I've always been a fool
I fear this love reaction
Just like you said I would

A rose could never lie
About the love it brings
And I could never promise
To be any of those things

If I was not so weak
If I was not so cold
If I was not so scared of being broken
Growing old
I would be...
I would be...
I would be...

Blessed are the shallow
Depth they'll never find
Seems to be some comfort
In rooms I try to hide

Exposed beyond the shadows
You take the cup from me
Your dirt removes my blindness
Your pain becomes my peace


If I was not so weak
If I was not so cold
If I was not so scared of being broken
Growing old
I would be...
I would be...
I would be...


...frail

I AGREE with the extent of this unconditional love. I see it as: mercy. Humans NEED a perpetual supply of this kind of love!

I don't advocate that it's okay to act upon impulse, though. I believe all feelings can be empathetically acknowledged, but shouldn't (in themselves) be necessarily encouraged or acted upon. I'm finding there's normally a reason for everything; distorted/unethical impulses stem from some brokenness or insecurity (which everyone has to greater or lesser extent).
