Love The One You're With...

I've learned much about this thing we call love.  I'm not sure I have drawn any concrete conclusions at this point, but I will say this.  When you live in the eternal moment, you realize how much love really flows through you.  When you stop living in your head with all the ideas of how things should be, who you should be with and what you should or should not do, you find that there is more love within you and surrounding you than you ever would have imagined. And you realize that you can share a deep and profound connection with many people.  And I'm not just talking about sex here, I'm talking about love and intimacy and connection.

Actually, at this point, I'll just stop talking.  I can't put it much better than the legendary Crosby Stills Nash and Young:

Love The One You're With

If you're down and confused
And you don't remember who you're talking to
Concentration slips away
Because your baby is so far away

Well there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can't be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with

Don't be angry, don't be sad
Don't sit crying talking good times you've had
Well there's a girl sitting right next to you
And she's just waiting for something to do

Well there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can't be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with

Oh yea oh yea, yea
Lord, love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with
Why don't you love?

Turn your heartache right into joy
She's a girl and you're a boy
Did you get it together and make it nice?
When you ain't gonna need anymore advice

Well there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
Sometimes you can't be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with
You gotta love the one you're with

You gotta love, oh love
You gotta love, oh love
You gotta love, love the one you're with
You gotta love, love
