love note

this little letter goes out to so many of my friends, to so many people I know, to others who I haven't met yet.


you are enough. right now, you are enough. you don't need that new car or that new place to live or even that hair cut if it isn't what makes you light up!
if you are going through a tough time, a time where every little gremlin of your past and present (and possible future!) is jumping up at you and making you feel overwhelmed and not-enough - I send you so much love and support.
I take your hand and beam love towards you, like a golden light.


even if sharing what is bothering you is just too damned difficult right now, that's okay. I am here. I will always try to understand.


now I want you to just take a moment and think about the planet - the billions of people living on it, living every life you can imagine. the animals and the insects, the droplets of water in all the oceans, the grains of sand on all the beaches. now imagine all of that is inside your heart. you hold the world in your heart. it isn't heavy, because it isn't expecting anything from you. you give love back when you can, and that is enough.


now imagine you have the whole universe inside your heart. all the constellations of stars, the asteroids, the suns and the moons and the planets! see them all doing their little orbit-dance inside your heart, and feel them grooving away to their cosmic beat.


you are enough. there is so much wonder in this existence, and guess what? you're one of them.




all my love,


Bethwyn

  2. Sweetie, are you familiar with the saying "Aham brahmasmi"? I believe it's Pali, and is used as a mantra in meditation. It might be translated as "The core of my being is the ultimate reality, the root and ground of the universe, the source of all that exists." It's a very special saying to me. When I hear it, I hear "I am the universe." "I am made from the essence of stars." "Divinity enlivens each cell of my body." Your love note reminded me of it. Thank you for that <3
