The Ground of Love

You cannot love yourself, 

you cannot 'do' self-love,

for there is no self to love,

no lover divided from the beloved.


You can be yourself, yes.

You can be love, of course.


And in love, as love, through love,

you can embrace the one

who searches for love,

the one who feels far from home,

the one who doesn't know how

to give or receive this love.


You can love your own inability to love,

these precious feelings of unworthiness, unloveability, 

even failure.


But you cannot love yourself,

for you are already too close.


You have already been swallowed

by the ground of love.


Broken now, you are ready.
