Men fall in love with me, you know. Yes they really do. I began to notice it quite young, and had no idea of what to do with it either, or even why they felt those feelings for me, the way they did. I never saw myself as having those specific type of feminine attributes that most men find alluring.
I suppose I made it easy for them to love me, though, as I loved them back with all my heart, listening attentively to each word, pleasing in any way I could be, and then waiting to be received and treated in a like manner.
And I wondered when that didn’t happen, why? Some lacking in myself, I initially thought and believed for some considerable period. I didn’t understand at the time you see.
But life moved on and so did I, and being a shy but inquisitive soul I explored life more fully and discovered women loved me too, and so did children and animals, even plants thrive around me. Even nature’s wild animals have approached me, and I have pondered the why of this also.
What is it that I project that appears to be appealing to all life forms? (on an interesting side note, there is a small handful of individuals who strongly dislike me when meeting, the hairs on the back of my neck actually stand up and I wonder about the nature of their negative vibrations – spooky that!)
Could it be that what emanates deep from within my soul, and radiates outward, that which is stronger than any other thought, feeling, emotion, sensation I may have – is my pure love of all things living.
And when I am with and around any and all life I embrace it fully. I know of no other way to approach life than by loving it. All the parts and pieces of it, shapes and sizes, actions and causations. It is the “who, that I am”!
I’ve always felt this way. As a small child, a growing youth, an adult. So after years of exploration and experimentation and experience, I ask the question, if all that I say be true … Is love an illusion manufactured in an overly imaginative mind, or the primeval essence of what all life is really about. Is the true nature of love far more than we mortals think it is, and are life’s experiences just varying degrees and shades of this force of nature.
I lean towards the second. I believe really living life is loving life. And because I love living, life loves my living of it – and loves me in return! So “take that” all your scholarly type psychoanalysts and sociologists and make what you will of it! When all is said and done – it works for me!
The answer to my blog’s title THE WHY ABOUT THIS – Because you are loved!!!
Once upon a time there was a pretty little planet rotating around a great big golden star surrounded by some other fascinating planets doing the same thing. And nearby there were many other stars and planets and so forth and so on. These solar systems too numerous to count simply filled with the flow of universal life, matter and being! A glorious and unfathomable immensity.
It seems to me in the whole scheme of things that the occupants of the small little planet must surely realize how very special and unique they are to be a part of something so vastly huge and wonderful.
In this landscaped backstory of life we humans exist. To what end or purpose – a mystery.
This mystery book would be so popular that it could In fact be a screen play in the making for a most magnificent movie.
US, we – all of us – little tiny inconsequential beings, are in fact a part of the bigger picture (in spite of what we don’t know or think we know), In full, living and blazing color. With tons of special effects no less. The potentially biggest block buster of them all. It is to be hoped that the small roles we do play will be played out well and that the mystery of life turns into the masterpiece it is intended to be!
Thanks for the visit, hope your week has been going well for you,
