That Love is all there is,
Is all we know of Love;
It is enough, the freight should be
Proportioned to the groove.
This is wonderful; as there is only love – it means there is no hate.
Seems as though the “Freight” may be referring to the love (“all there is”) that one carries or is aware of being. Which is proportionate to the “groove” or impression that one makes on the planet.
Love does not require a deep groove because it is heavy. Love requires a deep grove because of its vastness. That being said, we do not have to be everything to everyone. Heart work is deep, and therefore growth nourishing. This is my belief based on life experiences. If love feels heavy, may your burden be put into perspective, or lifted.
But might the freight be construed as a burden that requires a deeper, more constant groove, indeed more love.
In the end, to borrow from Mr. Larkin what remains of us after we are gone is love, the groove we dug for the freight of others.
To be alive is to experience all; and love is, for some, the most absorbing and significant of the many ways we process sensual input. We can feel how important love is by feeling how deep the pain of love lost, the groove left behind. The groove is deep because love is heavy.
It is enough: only a genius could say so much by saying so little
