You can write an outrageous love letter or an outrageous love note, a line, two lines, but you’ll make it part of your daily practice. It might take you 2 minutes, it might take you 5. But when you write an outrageous love letter, be outrageous. That’s the first rule.
Find your outrageousness, it’s not lovely, it’s not polite, it’s: You are gorgeous.
You can be writing this to your aunt, to your uncle, to your grandmother, to your postman, to your waiter. Our love lists are too short. We’ve limited, we’ve exiled love to this very narrow list of people who all coincidentally seem to serve her egocentric of security or we have a romantic relationship with, or we have a sexual relationship with, or we are married to or they are part of our biological family, but that’s not what love is.
Love is the ability to see the beauty, the gorgeousness that lives in every person, to delight in that gorgeousness, to delight in that beauty, to actually perceive to see a person’s essence. Outrageous love is God meeting God in our encounter. To write an outrageous love letter is to tell the story to the person. So they can find in your words of their own infinite beauty, infinite gorgeousness, infinite depth, and infinite worth.
How do you write an outrageous love letter? How do you write? How do you write an outrageous love note? You sit down. Maybe you put on a piece of music, maybe you get quiet for a moment? Then you just write for two minutes with every superlative, with every gorgeous word, with every reaching and flattering of your heart, with every expansion you can find, you write. You write an outrageous love letter. You find the outrageous lover that lives in you and you’ve found him before.
You’ve written an outrageous love note maybe once in your life, maybe you felt that in a movie, maybe you were watching a sunset, maybe you were dancing in a party, but there was a moment where you felt reality alive in you. Find that moment. When you felt your full aliveness, remember it. Have faith. Be faithful to the memory of your full aliveness. Have faith. Be faithful to the memory of your full aliveness, and with that energy, write an outrageous love letter, a line, two lines. Will you tell the person, what you appreciate about them? What is beautiful about them? Why are they important in your life? What gifts you think they have to give in the world, and let them feel themselves awakened, fully alive in your seeing. That’s an outrageous love letter.
You can write an outrageous love letter to source, to reality, to God, to yourself, to a friend, to a lover, to a husband, a wife, a child, a brother, a sister. Let writing your outrageous love letter be your first outrageous act of love.
Here’s another way to write an outrageous love letter. Write us the story of an outrageous act of love that you’ve committed. Tell us the story. You see in the old world, you committed an outrageous act of love and you kept a quiet. It was anonymous because you want as be modest, to be humble. But today we’re part of a global commons; we need to shift the very wharp and woof, the very quality of our public space. We need to access outrageous love as a force for healing and transformation.
So, a new way to write an outrageous love letter is to actually write the story of the outrageous act of love that you’ve committed and let it inspire ten thousand other outrageous acts of love. Send it to us. We’ll post it. Let people read it and they’ll be moved, opened by your outrageous love to find their own inner outrageous lover and to commit their own unique outrageous acts of love.
Write the story of your outrageous act of love. Send it to us. And then when people read it, they’ll be opened, they’ll be inspired, they’ll be invited by you to access their own inner outrageous lover, to commit their own inner outrageous acts of love. And together we’ll create a symphony of transformation, a symphony of outrageous love, a symphony of people committing their unique outrageous acts of love.
A unique outrageous act of love addresses a unique need in your unique circle of intimacy and influence that can be addressed by you and you alone. A unique outrageous act of love addresses a unique need that you discern, that you have the ability to address. You have the responsibility to response ability to respond to that unique need. In this new world it’s not top down, it’s bottom up. It’s the self-organizing universe that self-organizes to higher and higher levels of consciousness through the transformational power of an outrageous love that lives in you, in me, as you, as me, through you, and through me.
Let’s do it together.
