Do we give life when we love?
Do we take life when we don't?

Ankh, word, image, life

Gold, liquid of gods
Skin of gods
Stolen for gods?
Stolen to give to other gods?

I offer you,
A lotus
A dawn
A rebirth

Who is your god?
Are you your god?
Stolen,
Given,
Hushed

Ankh, word, image, life.

Yes, we give life when we love, of course we do. Therefore when we don't love we are denying life. It isn't any more complicated that that, is it, Ms E?

Ankh=eternal life. Will we eventually earn it? Perhaps we need to learn what to do with it first.

"Do we give life when we love?"

It sure feels like it. doesn't it?

Nice ponderings.

You have given us a moment of meditation, dear Ebonygirl!

Your offer is absolutely precious and love-scented.

Love IS, we are constantly immersed in Love, we can absorb it and share it, it regenerates constantly, it never ever dries out. It is life-giving yes, the very Source of it. It is important to be aware of this.

Not giving it consciously deprives us of the greatest pleasure, but we can't "take" it or "kill" it, because it IS.... just my thoughts.
