be of love

They say that if you love something you should set it free, and if it’s truly yours it will come back to you, but I’m not sure most of us are capable of that.  Maybe a few Aquarians, and people with Uranus configured strongly in their chart.  But even for people like us it doesn’t come easy.  It’s hard to let something go, to let someone go.

But just because it’s hard or even impossible doesn’t mean it’s not so.  It is so.  It will always be so.  You cannot own another person, I’m not even sure you can own your own self half the time, why should you be able to pin someone else down?

The thing is that on the other side of it being hard, is it being easy.  In  fact, once you get used to it, it’s the easiest, best, most relaxed way to love that there could be.  Think about it, if loving people means setting them free than whatever they do is about them, not you.  It means that you don’t have to worry about how they feel about you or what they’re going to do to you.  If something they do hurts you, all you have to manage is your own feelings, not theirs.  You don’t have to change anybody or fix anybody or placate anyone.

It’s amazing how we complicate things, really.  We don’t have to.  You do you, I’ll do me, and we’ll meet here, in the middle.
