There were two young men, one brunette and one sandy haired. The first was of average height and stocky and the second, slender and tall, lanky. The first dark haired man was smitten with the girl, he wanted her for himself, yet she was smitten with the tall, lanky one, she chose to be with him.

When they were discovered together the stout, dark haired man was furious! He created a contract of taxation … he wanted 15 to 35% of everything they had, and everything they ever would have. She told him he was only upset because she chose the one over him, and she threw the document back at him, refusing to sign. There is NO price tag on Love. They took her fair haired lover away and they hurt him … keeping him from her, to this very day.
Jealousy has no honor. It is not pretty, or handsome, it cares not for others at all. It’s focus is on destruction of everything good. What does one do when they’ve been rejected? How do they deal with the hurt they feel? Is it not better to decide that the one they pined for actually is not the one suited for them and simply move on?
Heartache, heart break, one after another. Life will give it to us over and over again, it has, and we have experienced the truth of it. The root of it all is the jealousy of one man … and the whole world suffers for it. They said the woman ate the apple, but no, she chose love over being possessed … Gentleness over a prideful owner. And so the would be prideful owner has, for all of time, caused much suffering in the world.
Some say she should have allowed him to possess her, for the good of the whole, but if one is possessed and not allowed the freedom to love, then the love of the whole would be poisoned anyway, living false happiness while she suffered. Would anyone of honor, integrity, living in morality say they could actually be happy, knowing it possible only for the suffering of one?
If one is not free to love, are any actually, truly free?

How to mend hearts? How can the originator of this whole mess be convinced there always has been one more suited to his being? Does he not know his twin flame waits? She too, most likely, has been suffering under this spell he has cast into the world. Jealousy closes the mind to the bigger picture, and the goodness that could be isn’t, because of it.
How can she facilitate healing? How can she free her love and open the clouds above, allowing the sun to shine on all hearts who suffer? How can she let the one who caused so much pain know that he, too, has one waiting for him, and how she, along with all others, has suffered due to his inability to see the bigger picture?
Rage closes the heart, room cannot be found for that which would fill and smooth the hurt. To be possessed by one who does not truly love is hell itself, and cannot be allowed. Yet from the beginning this has been the way of the world, following in the footsteps of the original man who became so insane he could not see past his emotion, noticing that he was lacking knowledge of the workings of the heart, perhaps too prideful to acknowledge it, if he did.
Woman did not cause the fall of the world. Jealousy of a man did. And still, to this day, wars are fought because men are not ‘getting their way’.

Is it not time to begin again? Knowing what we know now, can we not find a better way, one in which allows healing and true love to exist?
Lust is not love. Lust wants to posses, and it is followed by pride. When the one possessed leaves or is freed, wars are fought and people die … this is the current reality, caused by the original event of shattered pride and need for possession and power over and of another.
All this time blame has been put on the head of that young woman, and women all over the world have carried this burden. All she ever wanted was to love, and to be loved. All she still wants is to love, and to be loved. She has been searching for it, for him, and he for her.
It seems they have come together, even though she did not understand what was happening. Her mind had been clouded by generations of programming, by the embedded emotion of fear and pain. Is it possible to heal this wound from so long ago and bring peace to all lives, shedding the doctrine imposed on humanity, breaking the spell?
