Sprinkle: Makin’ Love

by SprinklinThoughts

Sometimes (some might say too often), when I think about the human part of this world, I tend to get a little bit depressed because of all the pain & misery out there… I won’t get into describing it (the pain) because I’m sure if you’re reading this, you’re already aware of it… and that’s not what this post is about…

When this happens, I

slow down
center
focus

and continue trying to figure it out… to understand, yes… but more to help fix it or balance it or whatever — anything, whatever it takes… just so it stops…

One thing I keep encountering is good peoples’ (more respectfully: beings’) consistent repeating that “what the world needs now, is love”… and I agree with that… but what does it mean, actually? We’ve talked about what Love is, and I agree we need more of it… but more? how?

The bad guys are insane… they take their shit really serious… use everything available to spread the darkness… they condition, dim the Lights, or even turn the Lights off… with little regard for Life or Love… and it appears we, who prefer to shine and light new lights, are not even slowing them down…

But why is this?

If we outnumber them and we’re all trying to “be the change you want to see”, why does the darkness appear to be gaining? Why does it seem like they’re getting stronger and more numerous while we seem to be getting fewer and getting weaker? Is it our perception of reality? Is it a cycle? Are more lights unlit than lit? Do we need reinforcements? Are we doing something wrong?

Not necessarily wrong…

I figure if the ‘bad’ people have all those resources & all that power, and they’re winning…

why aren’t we, who (like the others) have all kinds of power & resources available to us, doing better?… so why aren’t we?… could it be because the bad ones are making more pain than we are Love?…

Yeah, I think part of the reason may be that we’re not makin’ enough Love…

Now I don’t mean the kind of love that comes with candles & music… er, not really… well it’s a good thing, so yes… but I mean more of Love with a capital ‘L’…

We need to make more Love… we need to make more Love than the others do of not-Love…

Question is: How?

Hmmm… well… we all have energy right? and we all use energy, right?… OK, now add the positive attitude thing… if we use that energy (on a more conscious and powerful level) to also make Love… whenever we do anything, we’re making Love… we’re helping to do our part in creating it (or manifesting if you prefer)… and consciously guiding it outwards…

Think of an intimate caress… or feeding a baby… if we can apply that focus, intent, intensity, and joy in all our experiences, well, in my opinion that’s a start… (I think) probably a good one…

Look… I bake my own bread… when I mix and bake, I can just do it blah-like, “Oh well, guess I have to make bread.”… or I can do it and/to make Love… making Love is the same as making the bread — only using a different level of ingredients — while making the bread… similar to double-vision merged… the difference is you can make bread without making Love but you can’t make Love without making the bread…

It’s like when one changes a diaper (what! you couldn’t think of a better example than that? geez)… (finished?) even though it’s not exactly enjoyable, we do it because we Love the child and we want the child to know we Love it… to do this, we feel and project (make) Love — by/with/in our actions… we literally generate (or amplify if you prefer) the Love that we want this child to be surrounded by, know and feel… ultimately, to be…

And I think that’s exactly what we’re doing in everything we do, but we don’t seem to be aware of it, I guess…

anything, anyone, anywhere, anyway, anytime…

Any action we take… anything we do, think, say, feel, experience… any energy we expend (or take in)… can be done with Love, for Love, in Love, to make Love…

All can become Makin’ Love… no matter how much we know about it…

We need only to choose… making weapons, making money, etc… or Makin’ Love…

All else that we need, will develop… the first acceptance plants the seed and the decision made over and over, nourishes it…

Make it your hobby… make it your goal… make it your work… make it your Path…

It may become your experience…

If we make enough Love, after a while the things we do and experience will no longer get in the way of makin’ even more Love… the lantern shines as bright and strong as the glass is free of impurities…

Seems to me, if we can do this… why… when enough snowflakes fall, the ground becomes white… when enough sparks are encountered, the flame is lit…
