And yes, lol, it’s from the movie The Hobbit…
Entertain yourself, after this letter, put on the headphones.
Take 6-10 deep belly breaths, press play, then drop in…and listen.
What do you feel?
Where do you feel?
As the lyrics paint a vivid picture this said "unbreakable bond, I explore the impact of love in my life and the power it has to transcend all boundaries.
It completely shatters the glass ceiling.
"Keep careful watch of my brother's souls, And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke, Keep watching over Durin's sons"
These opening lines of "I See Fire" serve as a stark reminder of the importance of loyalty and protection in our relationships.
Just as Sheeran pledges to keep watch over his brother's souls, we, too, must be committed to standing by our loved ones through thick and thin.
This is the unwavering loyalty that forms the foundation of a bond that can weather any storm.
"Oh, misty eye of the mountain below. Keep careful watch of my brother's souls, and should this be the last thing I see, I want you to know it's enough for me 'cause all that you are is all that I'll ever need"
In these heartfelt lyrics, the powerful imagery of the misty eye of the mountain serves as a symbol of the depth and mystery of love.
When we venture into the unknown territory of our emotions, we can take comfort in the knowledge that the love we share with our partner is enough to sustain us through any challenge.
This love is not just a fleeting emotion but a deep connection that fills us with a sense of completeness, knowing that all we'll ever need can be found within our own hearts and soul.
"I'm on my way, my blood brother I will not yield, I will stand by your side through the dark night, we'll find our way when the world is crumbling around us, we'll stay strong together, our love will burn like fire"
As the world around us changes and challenges arise, the love we share with our partner serves as a beacon of hope.
Guiding us through the darkest of nights.
Our love becomes a powerful force that can withstand the weight of the world, as we stand side by side, refusing to yield to the pressure.
Like a blazing fire, our love burns brightly, illuminating the path forward and providing warmth in the coldest of moments.
"Calling out father, oh, prepare as we will watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side Desolation comes upon the sky."
This to me, says that even in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges, love can emerge triumphant.
As the flames of passion burn brightly, they engulf the mountainside, transforming the landscape with their fiery embrace.
Love, too, has the power to bring about change and growth, reshaping our lives as it engulfs us in its passionate flames.
This is the metaphor of the Phoenix Rising a mythical bird from Greek, Egyptian, and Middle Eastern mythology
The phoenix rising is used as a metaphor for overcoming adversity, emerging stronger from a difficult situation, or experiencing personal transformation or renewal.
The powerful imagery and raw emotions found within the lyrics of Ed Sheeran's "I See Fire" is a testament to the strength and beauty of an unbreakable bond grounded in loyalty and courage that knows no bounds.
I hope you find inspiration as I have in these reflections of “I See Fire.”
It’s a flame that will continue to burn…
The Parable of the Fire and the Mountain:
a parable that explores the depth and resilience of love.
Once upon a time…
In a small village nestled between a mountain and a forest, a young couple fell deeply in love.
Their love was so passionate and intense that it set the mountain ablaze, engulfing it in a fiery dance of colors.
As the fire burned, the villagers gathered to watch, mesmerized by the beauty and power of the flames.
Some were fearful of the fire, believing that it would eventually consume the entire village.
Others saw the fire as a symbol of the couple's love, a testament to the transformative power of passion and devotion.
Despite the concerns of the villagers, the couple continued to nurture their love, drawing strength from the fire that burned on the mountain.
The flames, though fierce and wild, never reached the village, and the mountain remained a constant reminder of the couple's unwavering love.
Over time, the couple grew older, and the fire on the mountain began to wane.
The villagers, once fearful, now mourned the loss of the fire, realizing that it had been a symbol of hope and inspiration.
As the last embers flickered and died, the couple's love, though no longer as fiery and passionate, remained steadfast and strong, rooted in the mountain's ashes.
The moral of this parable is that love, like fire, can be both powerful and transformative.
It can consume us in its flames or serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration.
Allow love to burn brightly while also nurturing its strength and power.
Tune into the lyrics, I’m curious what comes up for you.

My capacity to feel has been redlined.
Through the depths of pain, I’ve rediscovered burrowed sensations.
Sensations I am incredibly grateful to feel.
It’s like Carl Jung says, “Life is a balance of opposites, and pain is an essential part of that balance, as it helps us appreciate joy and happiness.”
