I hope that in the future they invent a small golden light that follows you everywhere and when something is about to end, it shines brightly so you know it’s about to end.
And if you’re never going to see someone again, it’ll shine brightly and both of you can be polite and say, “It was nice to have you in my life while I did, good luck with everything that happens after now.”
And maybe if you’re never going to eat at the same restaurant again, it’ll shine and you can order everything off the menu you’ve never tried. Maybe, if someone’s about to buy your car, the light will shine and you can take it for one last spin. Maybe, if you’re with a group of friends who’ll never be together again, all your lights will shine at the same time and you’ll know, and then you can hold each other and whisper, “This was so good. Oh my God, this was so good.”
~ Iain Thomas, “I Wrote This For You”
The most powerful force in the universe is Love. It is also our natural state of being. Our relationship to the world and how the world relates to us is based totally on how we experience ourselves. In fact the world we experience is an accurate reflection of our consciousness. The ability to unconditionally love and free ourselves from the unloving conditioning around us enables us to create more successful, rewarding, enriching and harmonious loving relationships. Discovering that love is what or who we are helps us to tap the power of love for good in our lives.
We need to see that love is ever present and inherent in our being. By understanding this we stop looking for love in the wrong place. The right place to look for it is the place in us that is prior to the mind, prior too the feelings. Love is the ever present awareness in which everything appears and disappears. To take our stand there, to know what we always are, is to know true love.
We seek love because we are unaware that we are the love that we long for. It is the longing that prevents us from seeing it. Once longing is dissolved in understanding we are able to see that we are the very thing we are looking for! This presence that we are and which we share with everyone is what is truly lovable. When we experience ourselves as the open, welcoming, ever present loving Presence our mind and body realign themselves to this experience. All the unlovable awkward characteristics that seem to thwart love get ironed out by love itself, and the mind and body are slowly refashioned into a shape that is in line with love. We then find ourselves expressing and celebrating this love in our relationships.
