The subtle messages of The Joker run deep. He and I were the same in many ways.
In my blog yesterday, I mentioned that it is important to remember that we all have a past. Our love eclipses our past but doesn’t eradicate it. We then bathe in the spotlight, created by the corona of humility. I stand in this spotlight daily. I’m no great man. I just want to become Love.
The eclipse signifies a change in character. Our character, in turn, drives the one thing that doesn’t change. Our personality. My personality is still the same. Hard working, competitive, protective, etc.
What is important is this. If you are one to test someone who is trying to eclipse their past, in order to become something better, you run the risk of the past character driving the ever-present personality. If someone guards themselves, and their relationships, in Love, the display of behaviour is different from someone who guards themselves, and their relationships, with an absence of Love.
Be wary how you cast your dice, therefore, because the house may not look pretty if it wins.
I’m learning, as I understand what it is to become Love, that your past doesn’t leave you. The memories, the lessons, past words and actions. They are all still there. Love becomes the eclipse to put the past into a shadowy perspective. The corona produced, though, puts us in the spotlight of humility. No matter how much we change and no matter the heady heights we reach, our ascension has been from somewhere and should be remembered.
Love, operating in a spotlight of humility, is a beautiful thing.
Connection, beyond the physical, lacks so much in our modern culture. Women aren’t merely vessels to be filled but, rather, artwork to be admired. A part of ourselves (men) to be Loved. In that they are of us, they become mirrors, showing us how we really see ourselves.
To physically abuse a woman is to see one’s self as weak. To verbally abuse a woman is to hate one’s self.
To Love a woman is to become Love.

Today’s Intagram Poetry prompt, “Eccedentesiast”, reminds me of the place I’ve been leaving, as I work on becoming Love. The journey has been long and arduous but also enlightening, thought provoking and has placed people in my life that I’d never want to lose. It’s also been a journey where I’ve had to say goodbye to some and distance myself from others. I’m glad to share these thoughts and, if you’re one to follow this journey, I hope you find it a blessing.
Without a doubt, he was my favourite Bond! Definitely a great great loss…
I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:
