Day 77 - 100 Days #FortheEarth

3 Angles of Love

1. The two kisses I will never forget. In the moments after our two children were resting naked on your breast for the first time. Your lips against mine, salty, shivering and warm. Your lips like something to hold on to in the long, angelic minutes of complete weightlessness, a grounding, a relief, a moment painted on the wall of time as a reminder of what our bodies always knew. Our tears, our laughter, our lips. 

2. You stay. You are my greatest teacher. You stay. Not because you are afraid. Not because you could not find someone else in a heartbeat, not because you are spinning in a romantic or dogmatic story of what love is or should be. I feel you stay because you truly love me. But you also stay because you are one of the fiercest, bravest human beings I know. Because staying with someone else means first and foremost staying with oneself. Because you witness the ups and the downs, the dirty fights, the bottomless, dark despair, the hurricane of life, and you stay. You say yes to the dark, as you also say yes to the light. That is love. Behind everything that comes and goes, you are. I am so grateful, so grateful to have met you there.

3. There is so much I do not know about you. I love your mystery, I love that I will never completely understand. The overwhelming feeling of recognition, of knowing you, of having travelled through many lifetimes together, our souls doing cartwheels of pure joy and celebration. Like when we dance together, you and I. Imagine, after so many lives, so much learning, so much growing, we still do not really know how to dance together! I love to feel awkward, stepping on your toes. I love the space, the respect, the way our life is a dance. There is so much I do not know about you. My feminine guide, my muse. I love you.

This is a calling to slow down and listen. To take a deep breath and explore our personal connection with Mother Earth. The feminine and masculine, the beautiful and dirty, the real, the messy, the sacred. Once it was natural. Today it feels crucial. 

For the next 100 Days I will write a book to the Earth. For the Earth. With the Earth. The book, and the journey, is also to you. For you. And with you. Together, we are everything.

Use #FortheEarth to share and, please, add your story.

Love, Åsmund.
