by Carrie Hart -
Love flows like a great unending river and even if you cannot feel it at all times, so is it there, endlessly flowing, endlessly supporting you, holding you aloft.
For you and your life are like a lotus blossom floating on this river of love.
Sometimes the river runs quickly indeed; sometimes there are rocks that crush one of your petals. But still it is love, love, that is the foundation of it all, the force that keeps you floating and moving, the force that drives your very life.
When the darkness of fear descends, know that the river still runs and keeps you afloat.
For the darkness will pass, the sun will shine again and then you will see once more the full glory of the beauty around you, within you, a part of you.
For you and the river are one, endlessly flowing and when your life as a lotus blossom is over, you will simply become a part of the river of love, to flow and flow, until the next seed of life is born!
