I believe that love is not about money, status, convenience, height , weight, or even gender or personality. It is all about what is real..that feeling .. that energy.. the heart and soul. When someone allows us to see who they really are underneath all of the walls of fear and illusion - this is love.
The most testing is the romantic love but all love is real and once fate allows us to see a glimpse of this reality we must work to believe in it. So many of us confuse love and become chained to it or to the fear of losing it.
Underneath.. deep down in our souls we are all perfectly at peace. In this place we have no fear.. no restrictions..In this place we love ourselves and everyone and everything. We feel pure joy and never feel like needing control of anything.
For most of us this place is hidden to others and in our minds is hidden to us as well. We have moments when in comfort zones that we are able to let the walls down but for many these are brief moments. They become almost unreal.. a trick of fate if you like.
It is so much easier to just pretend to be happy and free. To fit in with whatever environment we find ourselves in. To be chameleons of sorts. It is much safer to fit in with the crowd.. to play the sheep. However the more we do this the more the distance between our minds and souls. For short term comfort we create long term pain. Consistent fulfillment does not come without connection to our hearts and souls.
I believe the time has come for us all to stand up and have courage. To believe in the existence of this place of perfection. To search for our hearts.. to find our own love and to spread this love. Once we find self love or at least start to we need to help others to search aswell.This means not supporting each other's acts.
If we truly see someone's truth.. if we know we have seen their perfection.. their heart..their soul.. we should believe in this and never lose faith in it. If a person shows you their truest self, even for a second, they have given you their most prized gift. They have trusted you to see their most beautiful and fear free self. DONT TAKE THIS GIFT LIGHTLY.
When someone shows you their heart it is for a reason. I also believe that in this moment they too have seen yours. It is a very special bond between two people no matter what the relationship. From this moment on I believe that you have the opportunity to create a sacred bond.
This bond will be the hardest of tasks to build and create with. So many of us are scared of our own perfection. It feels amazing but is it truly real. We are living in a world where perfection and beauty seems to diminish by the year or even by the day. On an individual basis we seem to be trusting less and looking for an angle when someone loves us.
As such we want to love others but have trouble getting past our judgement and fear. We may think that we are acting with love but our judgement and fear tells a different story. We can believe that we are giving our heart to others when in fact it is locked behind walls of fear and no awareness.
It is at these times that we need to remind each other, especially those we love, who we really are. We should calmly and without need or desperation tell each other how we are acting. We should have ultimate faith in the reality of our loved ones and never support their acts.
