Dear Human

by Courtney Walsh

Dear Human: You’ve got it all wrong.
You didn’t come here to master unconditional love.
 That is where you came from and where you’ll return.
 You came here to learn personal love.
 Universal love. Messy love. Sweaty love.
 Crazy love. Broken love. Whole love.
 Infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling.
 Demonstrated through the beauty of… messing up. Often.
 You didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are.
 You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous.
 And then to rise again into remembering.

Love, in truth, doesn’t need ANY other adjectives.
 It doesn’t require modifiers.
 It doesn’t require the condition of perfection.
 It only asks that you show up. And do your best.
 That you stay present and feel fully.
 That you shine and fly and laugh and cry
 and hurt and heal and fall and get back up
 and play and work and live and die as YOU.
 It’s enough. It’s plenty.
