Opening to Love

Opening to Love

Your deepest gifts of love unfold from the depth, spontaneously. Loveís deep openness is your source of true change. With practice, you can open and offer your deepest gifts regardless of how things are.

Where do you open when you love someone deeply–what part of you opens? How do you help them to open?

If you were face to face with your lover right now, you could try speaking straight from your heart, without memorization or reading. How freely would your love flow from your heart into words? That depends, in part, on how open your body is. To offer your true openness as love, now and in every moment you can practice to open your body.

Breathe and relax open. An open body is not limp, but is like a cat, responsive, alive, and expressive.

To allow a deeper openness to prevail, feel into your loverís depths as if using feeling-sonar to touch far into your loverís heart. Breathe with your lover, relax open with your lover, open to heart-depth with your lover, and allow your words to flow.

Feel your loverís heart opening and closing as you speak, using your words like music to bring a smile to your loverís heart, gently evoking an openness of deep trust. Your lover can feel your depth feeling their depth. Allow your poetry to spring from open depth felt as one by both your hearts.

Your spontaneous heart-deep words often convey your true love with more grace and profundity than your rehearsed attempts to speak.
