Belonging…

Most people think they’re looking for love - searching for something that can’t be obtained.  

The truth is, love is relatively easy to obtain and most people have it in abundance. 

We’re not searching for love.  We’re searching for where we belong - the right place, our path.  We all know what it’s like to be in a forest - light filtered out by branches and leaves.  Even stars are impossible to see.  We put one foot in front of the other, blindly, hoping that our intuition or our maps or our guides are getting us to that place our hearts are searching for. 

In this mission, the brain, the senses, and logic are blind, deaf, and dumb.  Educated guesses empty with very little thought.  It’s the gut instincts, the irrational, the emotional that gets us to where we’re going.  It’s all of what we stop trusting when we stop trusting ourselves that guides us.  No wonder people stay lost for years.  

We’re not looking for love… or rather, not JUST love.  We’re looking for where we belong.  And when we’ve found it, it is impossible to give up.  When we find it, we are truly… home.  

…and nothing else matters.
