The Love Guru: Love is Patient

The Love Guru: Love is Patient

Love is Patient, Love is Kind (but hurry up already)

 

In all my years of advising folks in the ways of love, there is one question that comes up relentlessly. When? When will I find my partner, when will I be ready for love, when will my heart meet it’s match,

when, when, WHEN???

Unfortunately, in the same way that we cannot know when enlightenment will occur-despite endless chaturangas and gallons of green juice-love too is without prediction. We can set the stage, so to speak but we cannot control the events that must happen for true love to spark. We can heal the heart, we can open the mind, we can relinquish old patterns and release the memory of a lover we struggled to set free. But we cannot do too much more than that.

 

Or can we?

 

Now, my little love biscuit, we cannot-I repeat CANNOT-speed the process of love. We cannot make the magic happen even one second before it is supposed to. But we can do a lot while we’re waiting for it.

 

Maybe you’ve heard something similar before, but haven’t taken heed. The act of self-love PRECEEDS love with another. Let me be clear: it is wise to do all that you can before your lover arrives. For once you’ve been shot with cupid’s arrow, there is a good chance your love focus will land-and stay-on the other. This is sometimes not to be helped. But we all know that you cannot truly love another, no matter how amazing and perfect they are, without fully and completely loving yourself first. So get to work.

Take yourself out on a date-a good one. Wear fancy underwear and use expensive body oil. Get regular massages. And facials. Buy yourself new shoes/jeans/a kayak. See your energy healer. Hell, see her twice! Simply ensure your focus is on you. And even if you don’t feel it at first, Fall. In. Love.

 

Don’t even think about giving your number out until you are absolutely without-a-doubt certain that the love you have found within and in honor of yourself is the truest, most lasting, most earth shaking love you have ever experienced.

 

Because the clock is ticking, my friend. And with every second that passes, your love is one step closer to you.

 

Until next time, love nuggets…

Wise and insightful words are offered with the gentle approach of a baby lamb but the hard lined truthfulness necessary to help you sort through the plate of quinoa spaghetti that is a yogi’s love life. Perhaps it’s the Love Guru’s discernment practice or maybe an unfailing commitment to always knowing the truth in love. Perhaps years of experience have given the Love Guru the upper hand…regardless the reason, when questions of the 4th (and 6th) chakra arise, you need someone to ask (and you know as well as we do it ain’t your girl Tammy at the coffee stand).
