Authenticity

I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately.
You can’t have it without love.
Cos when the love fades, so does the energy to go on.  The motions blur and the dance dissolves. But when there is love. There is a relaxed energy in your actions. Fads and trends may come and go, what’s in what’s out chasing one another. But authentic keeps on flowing like it always has and always will.

“Love is like a friendship caught on fire.  In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering.  As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.”
~Bruce Lee

    Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.
