“Where is love?” she asked the sky.
It did not answer.
The sky had no voice.
It merely looked back at her with its invisible eyes,
but it did surround her.
It did give her vital oxygen and protection from the harsh rays of the sun.
It provided for her an atmosphere where she could learn and grow.
However, it was silent.
It simply WAS!
“Where is love?” she asked the ground.
The ground did not have a voice.
It spoke a different language—the language was of the many.
The squirrels chirped,
the waters babbled,
the insects buzzed and
the sky spoke through the earth as it moved the leaves upon the earth’s trees.
But still her question was unanswered.
Yes, she walked upon the earth.
Yes, it proved to be a place where she could learn and grow.
Was love there—just being, just growing
like the plants and animals around her?
No, love was more, she determined.
Learning and growing were often painful.
Where is love?” she asked inside—inside herself.
At first there was no voice—only a feeling.
The feeling was agitated, anxious, and unstable.
But she continued asking her inner question.
The feeling calmed.
It became more balanced—more stable.
The agitation left and the anxiety began to be replaced with…what?
There was a feeling,
a new feeling that she could not describe.
A feeling that she had no language for.
It was then that she heard the voice.
The voice was just a whisper at first and she could not understand it.
She turned all of her attention inside herself.
She closed her eyes so that she could not see the sky or the ground.
She focused her hearing internally so that she could not hear the water,
or the breeze rustling through the trees.
All she heard now was the inner whisper.
The whisper now became a voice.
It was a still, small voice,
but it did have a language—it was her language.
The voice spoke to her.
”Love is peace,” it said.
“Love is calm and time to look into the sky and lay upon the land.
Love is the ability to look inside and know your SELF.
“Feel me now—feel my voice.
Feel how my tone is filled with understanding.
Feel how my words are filled with acceptance.
“Now, my one,
my beloved one,
feel how my voice is filled with LOVE.
“Hear my voice of love and know that you need not search for love.
Love lives inside—inside the voice—inside your heart.
“We are ONE
Feel the me that you are inside and
you will always find love.”
