Every Monday in March I'm going to try something new and I'd love your opinion in the comments below. If you like the idea I might continue them on a regular (although not every Monday) schedule. I'm devoting Monday's to meditation, reflection and devotion to submission. I hope to select topics that will get you thinking differently about some part of your life or submission and then just maybe grow a little bit further. Today's topic is love.
Say the word, “love” quietly to yourself right now, a couple of times, listen to the resonance of it, and wonder about what it means. The word love is one of the sweetest sounds in the language. Listen to how soft it is, soft as a glove.
Depending on how you’re feeling at the moment, you may be a bit defensive when you think about love, or you may embrace the opportunity to enjoy yourself. Accept whatever mood you’re in as part of the experience, and experiment with these questions:
- When have you known love in your life?
- When you think of what love is, whom have you loved?
- In your current life, who is it you love the most intensely?
Love wants to permeate you in every way. Let it.
When we associate love and submission, we often see them as a working unit. One can not submit without love. But love can manifest in many ways and romantic love is but one of those ways. You must allow yourself to see all the ways you can love and be loved in submission. Love doesn't have to be directed at a person, and it might surprise you that the most important love is the love you feel for yourself.
Rise every morning full of love for how your body looks and feels. Enjoy the sensation of being in your skin and caring for your body with a love and devotion that you may have never known before. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I urge you to look in the mirror and behold beauty.
When you love yourself it shines out for everyone around you to see and feel. Love is palpable, it's something you can spread and share just by your presence.
Love is an emotion. Love is an action. Love is an experience.
