Do you reflect on love?
“If my love could be represented by a blur, it would be the beating of a hummingbird’s wings. Did you know that my love is the only love that can fly backwards?”
―Jarod Kintz, A Zebra is the Piano of the Animal Kingdom
Do you reflect on love? At Shift we think about love as an active movement of an emotion, that it may bring us closer to being kind and generous, ourselves, if we really love. But not if we want someone’s love through wanting security. Our love is not a permanent love – that is a “I don’t wish to hurt you so I will never leave you” kind of love. Our love is let’s dance together so that we can be kind to each other, and if you go and dance by yourself or with others, that grows love.
We think about our place on the planet like this also, so that carefully choosing eco and organic fashion we buy, we wear, and we share is also an act of kindness and generosity – it’s the warm soft breeze of love for ourselves and for each other. And it is a beaming smile for our environment.
We think of choosing clothes as a big part of this smile. When there is something you love to wear – you just love it! It resonates with who you love to be – rather than being part of the latest fashion trend. But if you love to be part of the latest fashion trend, and that’s who you are – and that is absolutely OK too.
Thank goodness there are Hummingbirds on Organic Cotton buzzing around Shift to Nature.
