Falling in Love
Falling in love is
an unexpected gift
that's already been opened
by the time you become aware of it.
no announcement of coming events,
no unwrapping or untying
of the package is necessary.
Suddenly there it is inside of you,
and there you are inside of it,
once again, a fallen woman.
This arresting painting by Jan Elvee is filled with mystic symbols, many directly related to Kundalini awakening--including snakes, chakras, and the energy envelope. And, as she herself has noted earlier, this opening of the psyche often involves the state of "falling in love" with everything and every one you encounter, for the world becomes a very beautiful place where love flows freely. We might call it "the honeymoon of the soul."
