A rose is a symbol of beauty and love.
Every day, Creator God tells me, “How do I Love thee; let me count the ways.”
Creator God says, “I love thee with all the fiber, fabric, and energy of my being.”
Let me count the ways.
I Love thee with all the Divine Masculine Energy that I am, the manifold of Energy, Order, Life, and Community.
I Love thee with all the Divine Feminine Energy that I am being, the manifold of Liberty, Awareness, Authenticity, and Articulation.
I Love thee with all the Divine Spiritual Energy that I am becoming, the manifold of Unity, Vision, Wisdom, and Creativity.
Like the symbol of a dozen roses, you were created in my image with all the beauty and energetic Love that I am offering.
This is my humble perception of the reality of Creator God’s Love.
Several centuries ago me thinks that Elizabeth Barrett Browning penned it so poetically.
How Do I Love Thee:
Let Me Count the Ways
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height.
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
Today, I am resonating with the final words of this poem:
“I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.”
This is my continuing experience of “Joy of Spirit.”
