Never Fear A Broken Heart
I have heard more than one person say that they did not do this or that because they feared another broken heart. Broken fingers, hands, feet, arms, legs, and skulls should be avoided by all means but the breaking of our “emotional” heart is unavoidable unless we build a thick shell around it, so thick that no love can get in or out. Actually in many cases that breaking heart feeling is that shell cracking and very like teenaged growing pains when bones must stretch, muscles, and ligaments to accommodate a growing larger adult body. Our emotional hearts should grow to make room for everyone and everything that we can and should love and for their ever growing love flowing back to us.
Dave you write and sing a lot about love, not very scientific of you. Think not? Science is merely experimenting and coming up with theories from the evidence and testing it to see if you can prove any of those theories. I have have spent this and most likely many previous lifetimes working in the “Love Lab” developing these theories that I share with you about love and you are more than welcome to try to prove them or disprove them yourself.
I keep coming back to a simplistic explanation that I heard or read where someone said that every human action is one of two things, an act of love or a cry for love. My personal observations both of my own actions and of those of others bears that out. We are so quick to judged and condemn the actions of others and even our own as “evil” or “bad” when they are are all loving or cries for attention and love like a child acting out. We are, no matter our years, always Children of the Universe and ever trying find ourselves, our true identity, and our place in the cosmos. Even scientists who do not purport to believe in love both respond to it and find themselves doing it. They nor any of us can help it for love is what we are and what we crave to give and receive.
As dear, purple, short-armed Barney used to sing and maybe still does, “ I love you. You love me. We’re a great big family.” And I love you, Sis. I love you, Bro. I hope you feel it on this beautiful almost spring Monday morning.
