There is a fire within that has often been called love. We are fascinated by this sensation. It is desired and yet, in the end, sometimes hated. People often mistake sensuality for love. There are many factors that cause a need to belong and a demand to have more.
A person will often seek happiness through another person. The search for love is psychologically similar to our need to find spiritual fulfillment and salvation. We basically desire what we have already. Many people spend their entire existence consumed by a flame that is only a mind game.
Life and love are real. However we should be aware. The mind can not differentiate between ultimate reality and the game that it plays. However you, as awakened consciousness, can end this long-standing game. The authenticity of your experiences relies on your relationship to the universal self.
A Raging Fire…
Sometimes Called Love
There is a spark within that reacts to every whim.
This spark becomes a fire again and again.
It is kindled by want and more so by need.
There within this it is strength it seems.
Alas however there is also weakness concealed.
Ultimately this type of fire has no true depth.
This wildfire disguises its true nature; more or less.
It swipes upon you masquerading as love.
This has happened to me; often indeed.
It has surely happened to you; again and again.
We have stared at the stars as the ecstasy began.
The love that we feel seems so grand.
It is in the things of this world and all that we know.
Moreover it is here and there and beyond the unknown.
There is a caring and kindness wished by all.
Thereby is an infatuation as feelings clinch our heart.
The emotions often erupt by the suns first light.
The feelings for love ignite this misguided fire.
Do not be mistaken by this devious sensation.
You may say to yourself, ah, this is love.
Thereby is a part of you that knows it is not true.
After all it feels so good you scream without shame.
I seek love; I want it regardless of its name.
The fire spreads through you; there is no escape.
The flames flicker higher as you burn in this blaze.
It consumes your soul as you are inflamed in the glow.
You try to run but the heat is so intense.
Why even try as your heart begins to burst.
It hurts, you cry and still you will not let go.
Why, you ask, can love cause such pain?
There is something hidden; something just not right.
This fire called love is in truth first a game.
It is the mind with so many thoughts and passion.
There is for these reasons a fierce incineration.
It rages out of control, furious but fleeting.
A love that will last is one that can not be smothered.
However take heed and beware this burning desire.
Otherwise only ashes will remain.
Always remember each love is like no other.
Love flows through all and will blossom anew.
It is ever-lasting; oblivious to the winds of change.
The seasons may come and go but true love will live on.
What is true love you ask?
It is you naturally and that is a fact.
The essence of its beauty revealed as you let go.
It is in you and you are in all.
This is something you surely have known.
