Tainted Love – Tainted Love                           Now I know I’ve got to run away                       I’ve got to get away                                         You don’t reallyimage want anymore from me

To make things right you need someone to hold you tight

and you think love is to pray but I’m sorry I don’t pray that way                                        Soft Cell, Tainted Love

The love we feel can not be something we look to own. As though it is a object we can put in a box or on a piece of paper to show ourselves and others what we have. That isn’t love. That is the visual of a thought we think is but it isn’t. The idea that somehow a word either said or written can hold love in it is a lie. That lie steals the love we feel to a illusion we think is real.

We want to have love. We can’t have love, though, we can only be love and when we share love we share the moment that is love. It is the thought of a everlasting love to endure and overcome that takes the moment of love and makes it a accomplishment of time.

Time isn’t real. The only place time exists is in the thought that thinks it. So the love we have in the moment we are and share is the one moment that is real. The thought that stands between two people of what love is, is what separates love from itself. Love is to love as love is all there is. Love is lost to thinking what it is, which it isn’t. The thought that thinks what love is isn’t love. Its only a thought and it only lives as long as we think it.

“And maybe love is letting people be just what they want to be                                           The door always must be left unlocked             To love when circumstance may lead someone away from you                                            And not to spend the time just doubting          Howard Jones, What Is Love

If I can conceptualize that interpretation of what love isn’t and what it is. How then do I free myself of the thought that looks to steal the love I feel?

The only thing that is real is the moment that is. The moment does not live in a thought . The thought lives in fear as it isn’t real and knowing it isn’t is what makes it want to be what it cannot. Embracing love in the moment is only feeling love for what it is. The thought of love tomorrow is a responsibility in a illusion of time that steals the moment that love lives in.

There is no need in love. There is no desire. There is no tomorrow in love. Only the moment of now. Love only has now. Now is love. Feeling now is love feeling itself. Sharing love with another is sharing now with another. Now then feels itself in another and in that moment two become one.  The one that always is what it is.

So love is, to whom it is, as it is. Surrender the fear of holding love outside of this moment and love will be the moment.

And so today, my world it smiles, your hand in mine, we walk the miles                          Thanks to you it will be done, for you to me are the only one.                                        Happiness, no more be sad, Happiness…I’m glad

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.                                                             When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.  Led Zeppelin, Thank You
