Everyone wants to fall in love. Books are written. Classes taken. Every article, quote, hocus pocus magic spell about falling in love is eagerly lapped up by the every increasing members of the Lonely Heart Club. But what if you simply fell in love? How would that change your life?
More than once over the past few years, I have felt the physical feeling of falling love sweep through my being just at the sight of something beautiful. In both instances the feeling made me declare my love out loud.
The first time was in Malibu Bluffs Park as I was driving from Twenty-nine Palms, California to Seattle. My dog needed out so I pulled into the nearest park. We walked up to the top of the bluff into the park where the entire Malibu coastline burst into view. The sun was shining and I felt my heart open up with that feeling of love.
Out loud I said, "Oh my god, I'm falling in love."
I stayed an extra day in Malibu. For a few months after I returned home, I toyed with the idea of moving there. Sometimes I still do.
The last time I fell in love with my life was a month of so ago. I drove south on the I-5 in Seattle late at night only to find a traffic jam at the 90 bridge. I simply turned around and made the short trek north to take the 520 bridge across the lake to home. Little did I know that a full moon would be hanging over the water in all its majesty. Again I cried out loud, "I am so in love with my life."
All good things can come to she who lives life with an open heart. Little did I know that every time I fell in love with life itself that my heart expanded to make room for more love and goodness from an abundant Universe. And just when I think there's no more room, my heart expands just a little bit more . . .
