I do love vintage Valentines, and this one with its cornucopia of hearts expresses exactly what I wish for you. An abundance of love in all areas of your life.
I think it’s an unnecessary limitation, and one that causes needless pain and challenge, to think Valentine’s Day need be focused on love in partnership, or tied into manufactured demand for consumerism. Luckily we get to define things as we want them, and I claim this as a delightful day celebrating love in all in guises.
I particularly like how Rumi frames it:
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
If we gave ourselves no other task in life than this, can you imagine what a rewarding exploration it would be to pursue such an openness? I think we should all take it on.
I believe in the generosity of love and hearts, and just like the Valentine’s cornucopia, I have my own collection.
Clearly I have a love of heart stones as well as vintage Valentines. And I have a great love for everyone who takes a moment of their time and spends it here with me – thank you! May today and every day be filled with love.
