All is full of love.

12.13.10 // My Mondays

As I sat down to begin to write my blog post, I had my iTunes going on shuffle.  Bjork’s “All is Full of Love” began to play.  I listened, thought it’d be a great blog post, changed my mind, continued to listen, then decided to run with it.

you’ll be given love
you’ll be taken care of
you’ll be given love
you have to trust it

maybe not from the sources
you have poured yours
maybe not from the directions
you are staring at

trust your head around
it’s all around you
all is full of love
all around you

all is full of love
you just aint receiving
all is full of love
your phone is off the hook
all is full of love
your doors are all shut
all is full of love!

all is full of love
all is full of love
all is full of love
all is full of love
all is full of love

Love written all over hand

I think “love” is something that we all spend SO much of our time thinking about (maybe even to the point of obsession?), planning for, questioning, seeking out…and yet I feel that all too often we forget the fact that love really is all around us already – in this very moment!  Isn’t that an amazingly comforting notion?!  It should be…

Her lyrics tap into the concept that the love is there – it’s already a very real and very strong presence in our life; it just may not be where we’re currently looking for it.  Beyond that, we may ACTually even be blinding ourselves in a way…shielding our eyes, closing our eyes, forcing tunnel vision upon ourselves…it’s like looking through a telescope and hoping that a shooting star will go across the lens rather than just staring up into the heavens and watching them shower down.

So…in this very moment…we may actually be missing out on the very thing that we’re searching for! How crazy is THAT?!

Hand over Eyes - Love

The good thing about it: if we allow ourselves to become aware that we may NOT know what’s best for ourselves right now, and that there’s a different plan that we should go along with, it just might lead us to something bigger and better than we could have ever imagined…but we have to be open to receive it.  We have to trust it.

We can take control of our own lives (even if that means choosing to abdicate some of our control to the higher powers that be)…we can open our eyes to see this love that is already all around us.  It’s a beautiful thing to awaken to, I assure you.

Heart in Clouds

Find the love that’s already beaming in your life.  Embrace it.  Show gratitude for it.  Harness it.  Let it feed you and motivate you and inspire you and engulf you and comfort you and indulge you.  Then pass it along.

Love

All is full of love. :)

  1. Jen-Jen,
    AWESOME! You have got the gift of writing and lifting people up! You need to save all your blogs so you can put them into your very own super dooper creative book someday. That day will be here before you know it. Your pictures are terrific. Thanks for reminding me that love is all around me. I know this to be true, I just forget it sometimes and need to be reminded of it. Thanks. I love you bunches.

    • I am so thrilled that you were able to really take something from these words! But, alas – I am just a messenger. It’s like you said – you already knew the words to be true, you just had to be reminded. So glad I could assist in such reminding that feeds the spirit. :) And the book IS right around the corner – I can feel it! My heart is smiling the grin of a very lucky lady right now. Thank you so much for that, mama. :)
