Love – The Most Powerful Force…

….hello sweet tiredness, hello despair, hello anger, hello body.
Tell me of your wanting, your desires your needs. Tell me of your tiredness, your depression, your choking on all that’s inside. Tell me of your trying so hard.

I want to know it, I want to hear it all.
I don’t care if it’s not right to share.
Tell me all your mysteries.

Keep it all in they say, get over it they say, lose weight they say, get fit they say, do this, don’t do that, be anyone other than who you are.

But it’s the truth and the truth will set me free.

I want nothing but you.
Nothing but what is.
No more fighting it.

What would that be like?

I pause and feel into it.
I sense a deep peace that comes with this surrender.
I feel the love of a mother to her babies, so tired and worn out, she gets up hour after hour to nurture her child. Breasts so full, so tight, so sore, so little sleep, tired to the edge of exhaustion, she keeps going.
Love, the powerful force that drives her.

I have that to give all these places in me!

I can want them all like I chose them,
Like precious gifts.
This life
This pain
This joy
This body
All of it

held, transformed, healed…..

by the most powerful force in the universe.

  1. Hi Gabrielle,

    This was what I needed to hear tonight. Just before going to bed wondering how I was going to sleep with all that. How perfectly you describe what it feels like to be loved through and through.

    Thank you.


  2. Yes – to remember to pause and feel the most powerful force…through and through. And to feel it freshly over and over. Lest we forget!

  3. Dear Gabrielle,
    we don’t know each other yet but what you have written touches my heart deeply .
    Thank you

  4. Dear Bruna

    thank you too.

  5. Dear Gabe

    Somehow I find myself as the one inside that is hearing you, that part of you inside who so loved being heard and cherished by your words……..feeling so loved and appreciated… Kevin

  6. Dear Kevin.
    I am taking this in slowly and what comes is – When I can love and cherish all of me then somehow without even trying I am doing that for you!
    This going inside and listening deeply is a gift you have given me.
    It is an experience I am having and giving, not an imposed teaching. When I am able to surrender to all of my humanness and envelope it all with the power of the love that runs the world – it is good for us all.
    Thank you Kevin
