Come Home to Love

ComeHometoLove1000

Inspired by the movie Frankie and Alice.

Sometimes, compassion catches you unexpectedly like a love serum secretly injected in your veins coming alive of its own accord.

You cannot resist its force, its pull, its power.  Your heart overtakes your brain, it commands your body.  Your being suddenly grows much larger, more spacious, and softer than your usual tiny ego-identified self.

The breadth of humanity stretches across your visual screen. You see what’s possible if only love would prevail, dominating each and every mind.

The sensation had been building, and a simple scene made it peak.

In a fix, she looked up at him and said, “You came for me.”  Surprise played in her eyes.

“Of course, “ he replied.

Is there any greater beauty in this world than showing up for someone else?

You might teach them how to love and appreciate themselves for the first time.  You might relieve their poverty, their disease, or their impossible struggle, whatever it might be.   You might melt their worry with a smile and a deep breath of release.

I wish this love serum would become my own life blood, never dissipating but only growing stronger and stronger.  I would become a heartbeat, my one and only job.  Each beat would send a pulse of love to uplift those in dire straights, the lonely, the angry, the aggrieved.  Throb upon throb would spread tenderness throughout this needy, love-starved world.

Then, when I die, I would seemingly fly away on the whispers of this love, yet always be near, invisibly cradling you in warmth, safety, and care.

In this effervescent grace, I will come for you.  I will come for you and hold out my hand.  I will invite you to come home to love.  I will never stop coming for you until you too find love.

With love, Sandra

    • Thank you, Debbie! I felt very touched by this movie although it didn’t receive rave reviews. You and I sometimes have different tastes in books, I noticed, so it might be the same for the movie. You might appreciate the psychodynamics though and the amazing way this woman went through change. Love to you!
