Searching for my keys as I was running late for a red-eye flight home to see my mother before her surgery, I did something I had never done before. Instead of panicking and asking, “Where are my keys?” over and over again until I turned my home upside down, I closed my eyes, took a deep breath and asked, “If I were my keys where would I be?”
As I opened my eyes, I was immediately drawn to a piece of luggage I had already checked twice before. But this time, without hesitation, I reached into my bag and pulled out my keys as if I actually knew where they were the whole time, just in time to catch my flight.
Settling in for my flight, I couldn’t help but think about the powerful connection I had felt to my keys. But as the flight progressed, I began to wonder what else I could possibly connect to. In my wondering, I thought about everything I ever loved. But to my surprise, the only thing that stuck out in my mind was not a “thing” at all, but rather love itself.
So, in the early morning hours, cruising at about 30,000 feet, surrounded by a sea of slumbering souls, I closed my eyes, imagined and asked, “If I were Love, where would I be?”
With my eyes still closed and my right hand on my chest, I felt my heart burst open and reply, “Here…Here I am…I am Here…I am Love!”
Being Love, I asked and answered.
“How shall I love? Unconditionally.
When shall I love? Now. The only time that is.
Who would I love? Myself, everyone and everything that is.
Why would I love? Because Love is all I am and Love is all there is.”
And as the plane made its descent, I opened my eyes to a brand new world. A world filled with Love. A world filled with You.
