Love is Falling Down the Rabbit Hole…
“What is REAL?” the Velveteen Rabbit asked the Skin Horse one day. “Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?”
“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.
“Does it hurt?” asked the Velveteen Rabbit.
“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”
“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become.
It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t often happen to people who break easily or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out, and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real, you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.
But once you are Real you can’t become unreal again. It lasts for always.”~by Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit
Love is real…love is the strength…Love is a natural phenomenon…Love is a teacher…Love is a compass…Love just is…Love is undeniable, undefinable…Love is YOU…
Life, love, and people aren’t always comfortable or easy, but it’s an amazing ride towards the undeniable truth we all want-love.
Self-love, self-discovery is the entrance to the heart where all the shapeshifting happens. ~Dolby Dharma
