December 9, 2021--Love Does Not Buy You More Toys
Even if you decide to choose love right now,
it doesn’t mean that you will get a new Mercedes.
Choosing love is a more profound choice
than the purveyors of crystals
and the champions of abundance theory know.
That’s because the spiritual adult is not the only one
who must choose. So must the wounded child
who isn’t sure s/he is worthy of love.
If you believe the pundits of angel glitter,
then you can click your heels right now
and, like Dorothy, go right back home.
Nobody can argue with you if it works.
But if it doesn’t work, you might have to realize
that Dorothy has a journey to make in the underworld.
And there she will encounter both angels and demons.
She will have to confront the darkness
in order to find the light.
There she will come face to face
with all the aspects of self that she dislikes,
because that is what the journey to wholeness entails.
This isn’t the cotton candy kind of love.
It’s not the instant oatmeal approach to salvation.
Learning to love like this takes a lifetime.
