femme de la maison
my dear femme,
I bow to your knowledge in these regards my beautiful fellow pilgrim, but I also know that sometimes we need to be reminded of what may seem like common knowledge over & over again (see cream entry below).
There is always both enough love & enough space within us for love, for all love of all beings, for all love for all time. The idea that there is not enough (although I understand that this is probably not your problem) or the idea that we might explode out of our fragile & on the verge of hallucination physical realms due to our own intensity is just a limitation of the mind. I know you know this. But knowing or not the mind gets in the way.
So we might as well use the mind to help us love more & bigger.
I was recently at the Wigmore Institute in Puerto Rico and while detoxing there, one of the biggest toxins to arise out of me was the fear of not being loved. Although the polar opposite of your dilemma, I think the answer may be the same or at least one of the answers, worth a try:
I could hear the rush of the ocean so loud in my apartment that I could hardly hear myself think (a good thing). Perhaps there is a sound out there in Jackson that is similar, a silent howl across the landscape, under the stars. In any case, as I listened to the ocean I imagined love coming in and going out of me, without effort and ceaselessly . . I gave it the same value, in & out, the love was made from the same molecules, the same consistency, just stuff, manna, oxygen, life, flowing in & out. There was more than enough of everything (for me) and for you, my love, there was an even pacing so that you can rest assured your love will touch everyone & everyone will know & you will receive & give & give & receive.
sorry for the delay in answering . . perhaps you have found your own answer by now.
miss you xox tla
