Be what you are ….. Love
Love is who and what you already are. It is not some state that you have to try to attain through effort, finding the “right” person, passionate romance, or even years of therapy. It is what you already are naturally and it is achieved by simply letting go.
Forget the stereotype of sitting crosslegged in a meditative yogic post. You can achieve Nirvana in a supermarket queue. Simply become aware of your thoughts, take a few deep breaths and bring your mind home to the centre of your being.
When you let go of the layers of thoughts and “shoulds” and just allow yourself to “be” for a few moments, surrendering to the experience of it, you naturally exude this warm feeling of connection with yourself and the world. It radiates out of your heart and body as if you were the brilliant sun. Any effort to try to love someone simply misses the point of what love is about. The sun does not struggle to provide heat and light, nor judge who it allows to receive this energy. It knows it is already a naturally powerful energetic channel. Be like the sun. Shine your light from this relaxed space. Relax deeper into your being where you are in touch with this light that is emanating from within you at all times. When you are in touch with this resting, loving place, you will feel a sense of peace and every person you meet will feel uplifted.
You instantly step out of the ego mind and into your life purpose when you live and breathe each moment as this love. You stop all anxiety, suffering and pain when you are completely surrendered, resting as this love inside. When love is continually re-discovered at the very centre of your being, it flows so much energy through your heart that your head cannot be running the show. You drop the head trip and take your life’s adventure to the next level. By responding to others from your heart instead of your head, your life becomes aligned with its highest destiny. Your heart becomes a constant channel of love. As your heart learns how to trust this love, relax into and enjoy it, it will remain open at all times. When your heart does not close for 30 days, it connects with the deepest oceans of love in existence.
“Nobody is here to fulfill your dream. Everybody is here to fulfill his own destiny, his own reality.” ~Osho
When you practice resting at the deepest core of your innermost being, you will discover this love vibration at your core and the greatest miracle will occur. You’ll find yourself rising in love, instead of falling in love. The difference is when you are rising in love you know that you are the Source of this love, and that this love is not dependent on the other. In rising you are free, not attached to ego, and can remain constantly in touch with the Divine. Anytime you fall in love you run the risk of losing your intimate connection with the Divine. You may point towards the other, giving them full credit for your loving experience and stop realizing yourself as the main Source of this love. The only way to fall in love and “survive” is through surrendering to the Source of love on the way down. This way you don’t limit love, claiming it occurred because of the other, and you can find the Divine in all people that you encounter.
