Are there some written lines that do more than just inspire, motivate, or move you? I've read and written some that have touched me so much and so deeply that I feel that they are cuddling my heart, almost as if to repair it! I was listening to author and publisher, Louis Hay, talk about forgiveness and what the real essence of it means. She said that when you forgive, it is about setting yourself free. It meant that you weren't going to forget, but that you weren't going to allow the person(s) who hurt you have that power over you. And like many people do, I questioned, how will I truly know that I've forgiven them? She went on to explain that you will feel a sense of release and an ease in your heart!
The same ease and release happens to me when I read a poem that has a cuddling affect in my heart! I don't care how tough you get or think you are, we all need that feeling of gentle caresses inside our minds and our hearts. It is the essence of what life needs to feel like its serving humanity on a grander scale.
Think about all the single moms and dads out there who struggle with the notion of not being enough for their children- maybe not outwardly, but inwardly we know it hurts. Same with all the children who have been left in the wake of the break-up, death, or divorce of a parent. They all can use a heart cuddle!
This is why we are motivated to continue to write poetry that can have the impact of giving your heart the cuddling, support, and safety that it needs! Our new poems book "Poetry That Cuddles the Heart will be available shortly."
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
