What the World Needs Now



(I am aware of the irony, especially considering the rancour of my post before last, but now I want to post this even more - we get mad, we move through it and come out of the other side. Perfection is for the enlightened - as of yet, I'm still endarkened)

Installing Love on the Human Computer

Technical Support: Yes, how can I help you?

Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install Love. Can you guide me through the process?

Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready. What do I do first?

Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?

Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?

Tech Support: What programs are running?

Customer: Let's see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge, and Resentment running right now.

Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off?

Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?

Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and select Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.

Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Oops! I have an error message already. It says, "Error - Program not run on external components." What should I do?

Tech support: Don't worry. In nontechnical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others. Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive Self, Realize Your Worth, and Acknowledge Your Limitations.

Customer: Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over my Heart. Is this normal?

Tech Support: Yes, that means love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up. This love program is freeware. You're welcome to share it with others. Please pass it along!

I have to admit that I'm still working on the Grudge and Resetment issues. But I keep plugging away at the Forgiveness, so someday it will eventually take :)

You know I just had a sort of experience. I'm going to write about it. Conclusion is that love is not what you're feeling in the moment, it is an ongoing process, a process of becoming. Sometimes you can reach outside yourself and do what's right no matter what you're feeling in the moment. And then it works and your heart starts filling with this sort of, I don't know, emotion? Feeling? Beingness?

Do I sound flaky?

I like flaky. I'm looking for flaky in my life.
