We struggle with life, and get stressed with things on the surface, while underneath, deep within us, there is a state of peace, beauty and power that we hardly know exists. This inner state of peace, beauty and power is the soul, love. Love is constant, and remains unaffected by what happens on the surface.
Struggle and stress block the free flow of love, but only for a while. No matter what happens in our lives, love will always find a way.

Thanks for this post.
I have an ability to connect to a state of constant love – but when I am in extreme pain I will somehow become separated from it.
This morning I was walking along my river feel like my love juices were low. For the last ten (10) years I have been falling in-love and then suffering heartbreak. My heart is wider open with each experience. More run over with each ending.
I have not pursued these loves. But I have an ability to pull them in but not to create any relationship of longevity. This last heartbreaker was Norwegian- Australian.
Your words in this post took me straight to my heart. It’s helping.
While I agree with your sentiments – poetic and autobiographically reflected – that there is a constant love in soul.
I’m really – finally – wanting to manifest that on the physical level – any tips?
I havent yet read your book – but will do so on my Kindle.
I’m actually pursuing a phd to write a novel and my subject themes are compassion, difference and belonging.
The etheric love of soul you talk about is for me a compassionate, expansive constant. I do get that. I get your light description too!:) But more and more I want to experience and witness this on the physical level.
Anyway – I felt compelled to make a connection to you – not only because your words have reconnected me to a peaceful balm . But because you remind me – that my creative pursuit is about the invocation of this greater love in hope for myself and for the world that it might manifest physically.
All my best
Thanks so much for replying to my post. I was very moved when I read your words. Thank you for being so open.
What I understand that you’re saying is that you know , experience, the beauty and power that is love, but for some reason, in your relationships with men, you lose contact with that love and the relationships become painful. Also, that you have a deep longing to live out that love that you know is there, within.
You asked for some tips.
The most important thing I want to say addresses your words at the beginning of your post, ‘I have an ability to connect to a state of constant love – but when I am in extreme pain I will somehow become separated from it.’
I would say that it’s the other way around, that you experience extreme pain because you’ve become separate from the state of constant love.
If you want to live from this state of love, as I know you do, you need to start by reinforcing the connection that you already have, and learning how to maintain it, no matter what.
At the same time, you need to explore what it is that pulls you away from your connection to love, what it is that creates the separation and pain.
Regarding your relationships with men, see if you can discover in what ways you ’move away’ from yourself, from who you are, in your relationships to them. What are the underlying patterns that govern how you are when you’re with a man?
You need to know this because the things that pull you away from your true nature are the things that you need to resolve and let go of in order to experience the constant state of love that you yearn for.
I hope this helps!
