I hate walls... walls that separate people. Doesn't matter if they're white walls, coloured walls, new walls, old walls, gay walls, straight walls, expensive or budget walls, they're all the same. Walls are built as a fearful defence against Love. Sounds weird, but think about it.
As I said to a friend once, 'your defences are there to keep you from harm; and you've built them up strong and over many years. They're like a warm blanket to you now; but you know, those same walls you've built are also keeping out a lot of good things.'
Think of the deep experiences we may have missed; the good people we never let in. Sure, to be really open is to risk much, and to have your heart broken. But once in a while, someone comes along and truly opens your eyes... and will you turn away from that moment, when Love is fully staring you in the face? You may have trouble trusting people; but to not trust the power of Love is to wish you were never born.
Again, another friend says 'trust is earned...' Well, in my world, I will trust everyone from the get-go, until they SHOW me that they don't deserve it... I just want so badly to believe that people are good. It's not that my eyes aren't wide open; but what kind of a world do we want to make? To me, that takes trust up front: the trust that risks everything for Love.
