Love needs a Palatial Heart to reside in. We must give it a Garden in which to reside. Love is a 'constant graceful presence', it is not emotions, but can be emotional.
It is a feeling of strength from the Heart. It is ever present. It cares for everyone at all times, and it feels great compassion and empathy at all times for every living thing around them. It does not come and go with winds or moods.
One must accept its presence.
Love is an intelligence that chooses where it can visit and how long it will stay. If Love is invited to stay, is wanted within the true heart of the visited one, Love will stay. As long as it is a desired guest, given proper hostessing, a clean environment, and a genuine timeless invitation, Love will stay.
If love arrives yet is unwanted in the heart and pushed away, because the visited one is fearful of that intensity and power, Love will leave, because yes Love has a will of its own and will direct your life, cause you to feel great care in such intensity as to be overwhelming for some, and doesn't allow the one it resides in to hurt others because Love comes with a consciousness built in. Love commands cooperation. And that goes against the 'ways' of the ego of such as those in military, corporations etc...here love will leave...because it is incompatible to such ethics, and cannot live in such a toxic one who has chosen to close their feeling centers down, closed the heart, exert a lower will.
Love is not directed or bossed around. It only functions with a flow of give and take. Fearful people do not know how to do this in healthy ways.
Love needs a palatial heart to reside in, and feelings to flow through to live.
