LOJONG LOVESONG

So I am going to preface this by saying I have never blogged about anything -- ever -- so please forgive me if I have the etiquette all wrong.  Not quite a blog, not quite a poem either.  Anyway, here you go: 

 LOJONG LOVESONG (AKA: Indestructible)

Train wholeheartedly, but don’t expect applause.

Offer everything you have to give — all the love in your heart,

but never assume you will receive confirmation from the recipient,

or that it will even reach the intended party at all

(though it may reach their dog).

Be ok with that level of uncertainty.

 

(Keep your gaze steady and soft, but allow your peripheral vision to become expansive)

 

It will find a mark, but no return address

(sorry).

Think less boomerang and more paper airplane.

For if you try to hold it, control it, make it tangible or traceable —

suffocation.

But offer it freely,

and touch freedom’s Immeasurable Joy.
