I’m Love. Why does Love matter so much?

img_1233

I am re-reading Viktor Frankl’s “A Man’s Search for Meaning”, a compelling book of suffering and resilience, a true experience in motivation to find the meaning of life, with Love at the core. Poignant pages detailed within the Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz, Frankl was forced to explore his beliefs right down to their core. He states, 

“For the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set into song by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers. The truth – that Love is the ultimate and highest goal to which man can aspire. Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love.”

Love matters so much because it motivates, it protects, it connects, it aligns, it frees us from suffering. But using that language makes Love a thing- a lowercase love. The Love that really matters, the Love that transforms and has the capacity to shift political agendas, mend social catastrophes, repair broken homes- this Love is one of BEING- your very existence, rather than an emotion or a thing. It doesn’t take anything more than deciding that YOU ARE LOVE, to BE Love. No app needed, no special diet or pill, no routine or regimen, not even yoga or meditation. Just say, “I’m Love.” 

Viktor Frankl said “I’m Love.” Through his being, from his core, he was Love. He was a free man, even within the severe confines of a concentration camp. No matter where you are, who you are, or what circumstances you face, you can choose to BE Love.

I’m Sushi.

I’m Sushi dates with this guy. We’re extra wasabi and Pinot Noir and deep conversations and people watching at the bar…There is something about Sushi that brings people together; a connecting and alluring experience; a shared delight in the colorful rolls, the savoring of each flavor-bursting bite, the cultural vibe, the enticing use of chopsticks, the arousal of all the senses… Sushi dates are more than eating sushi. They are vitalizing moments of connecting, sharing, feeling…being Sushi. I’m Sushi. I’m Love.

I’m Books.

I’m Books.

I wasn’t always a bibliophile, and I surely wasn’t an exemplary student in high school, but I’m convinced there’s magic in books. The feel of a book in my hand, the stout heaviness of a classic hardcover, firm and unforgiving, protecting the delicate pages that contain the transformative words. Words that allow me to step into a time/space portal, ready to be magically transported to places far, near, historical and futuristic. The act of physically holding a book, and intentionally turning every page, is euphoria for the senses. I literally and figuratively ‘feel’ the book. I have stood atop the Wall with Jon Snow, I have been to St. Malo during German occupied France in the 1940’s, I caught swordfish on the Andrea Gail, I too met the Alchemist at the oasis in the dessert, I still eat the fruit from The Giving Tree, and just last week I was surfing in Hawaii with Jaimal. Are you ready for an adventure? ready learn something new? are you willing to say “YES”? Pick up a book. GO. READ. DO. BE. Be books. I’m Books. -Ned .

I’m Ocean.

I’m Ocean.

One of my deepest passions is open water swimming. In the ocean, effort and exertion are balanced with calm surrender as I am enveloped by salt water, embraced by rhythmic waves rolling under my moving body, fueling each stroke. My senses are alive with exhilaration as I look toward the open ocean, taking in the set waves rolling toward me, lifting me up and leaving me to free fall into the arms of the white water. I breathe toward the beach to witness a majestic backsplash against the blue sky, an emerging rainbow of spraying water. I am overtaken with awe as I surrender to the next wave’s fierce pull on my body. Each breath is a moment of full immersion, a chance to fully open my eyes to the swell of the pressing wave, engage in the taste of salt and smell of sea. Each moment takes me further into complete lust for the ocean.
