The Shirt of Flames

eagle and the hawk

“ Love is extravagant, in the price, it is willing to pay, the hardship it is willing to endure, and the strength it is willing to spend. Love never thinks in terms of “how little”, but always in terms of “how much”. Love gives, love knows, and love last…”

And again our knight, Sir Gawain finds himself in another adventure in the House of Marvels. Love’s arrow, conjured up by the fates, subconsciously projected by means of a magic spell from the wizard of the soul. The ‘intended’ take form as the Mysteries take over and guide our knight across the universe, passing stars, planets, and galaxies gathering energies along the way. The Fates intention is like Quantum Physics where all parts must be present to make the whole or like alchemy where nothing’s asserted until its time. Each of us is subservient to this destiny, we infuse the caldron of intent with our secret desire, the elixir is complete; loves target is designated.

There is no escape. To willingly follow the path of love is to willingly endure the shirt of flames. It is groundless, it is uneasy, and it has no logic. But the flames will annihilate all that we aren’t; all the props, the mask, and bring out the true self that we are. We choose the fire of torment or the fire of renewal to all that love can show; it’s only a state of the hearts mind. Though it may not come easily, when love appears, one has to burn with it, burning our ego-centered goals to realize the essence and soul of the relationship we are entering.

“A man may have shortcomings, but if he loves greatly much will be forgiven him.” -Ernest Holme.

I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in October of 2012. These are my writings of life and love after the fall but during a time of deep creativity either because or in spite of my illness... Peace and Love... JC
