In dissociating from emotions in addictive distraction.
Love is blocked within the unconscious escape towards issues we obsess about to fill our vacancy.
Love is the state of grace that’s each man’s purposeful journey on this life.
All of us have a journey to embark on and are available to like.
All paths taken in searching for solutions to self-suffering lead us to like,
Or they’re misguided ventures.
Existence and consciousness are everlasting, as is and as on this second, as is love.
To be self-welcomed again into the arms of humanity
Yours, our humanity… as a household by nature’s love, understanding, forgiveness, and caring.
Be the genius life meant so that you can be
By discovering and reaching out to others with nature’s present.
The self-understanding, caring, and forgiveness to find and understanding self-love.
It’s the solely reply and resolution in life… to life.
