Is love a way to find more love?
Is love- a method to be free of ego?
Is love the ultimate purpose in our human existence?
And if love is the purpose of our existence is it also its method?
If love is a method -what is it?
Well, first what is a method?
A method is a procedure to accomplish something. It may entail a systematic plan or action.
Does love have a systematic procedure to accomplish something?
A procedure involves a formula or a series of actions in a certain manner.
I’ve never known love as having a particular formula. There are no established steps or actions to love. There is no manual on Love nor agenda to Love.
It seems foolish to try to define or box Love.
What I know is that love is experienced. Love is a junction of experiences as we experience love in relation to self and others.
Still, like most things, experiences are unique to each of us.
We all love.
We all love uniquely.
We love something, someone….
We love ourselves and others.
Sometimes I've tried to be loving even when the other wasn't very loving. While it may seem that trying to be loving requires effort, it is less effort than being unloving.
When I’ve faced situations that tempted me to be unloving I realized my programming was to protect or to self-attack. We become programmed to react contrary to our nature. The only action I as an individual must take is to unlearn everything that isn’t love. I must see the programming for what it is.
A truer statement - is that we need to let go of all the habits of lovelessness.
In the world of untruth I was unable to truly see how much love I wasn’t allowing. The incongruency manifested in my body and in all my relations. Internally, much has shifted and I am grateful. The question that you and I might ask now:
Is there a method to unlearn lovelessness or to realize the Truth?
I believe religion and spiritual paths do attempt to show us a way to the Truth.
Unfortunately, in the seeker’s path ‘the seeker’ is the one that gets in the way of realizing that which we already always are.
I am grateful to have woken up from the delusion. It was a grace. I also believe I woke up from the delusion thanks to my sincere prayers.
I am also grateful, I did not follow any spiritual teachers. No one ever walks the same path, so no one knows better than our highest self. At best, others can point me in a direction and help me see what I am ready to see. Ultimately, I am both student and teacher to myself. I wonder, ask and have the answers. I choose what I experience conscientiously and not so consciously. Experience is a true teacher.
The unexpected has asked me to rise above my perceived limitations. The unexpected has challenged me to face myself. Those situations have asked me to have courage in spite of my perceived fear. All of us face various challenges to overcome the parts where we thought we could not never be cowardly, less than honest, greedy, or that we could be forgiving, vulnerable, humble, determined, reliable, committed, loyal, honest, etc.
Perhaps, there are no truly unexpected events, as I become more aware of my existence.
What matters is my willingness to experience all life as is and as it comes. I will come to transition out of this body, but life goes on. Life is ongoing. To exist means there is continuance of being.
There is existence in everything. Everything created or made up of love cells.
Everything has the potential to only love because it is composed of love.
Love is our spontaneous natural essence. Love can become theoretical, mechanical, a means to an end, a scheme, an agreement, a pact, a method in the world of untruth.
If Love were a method could it work?
Would the goal of the method be the same for each of us?
I think the ultimate goal would be to realize the delusion and be free of ‘methods,’ etc.
To be free, would not mean to reach fulfillment. Fulfillment may not be absolute freedom.
To be absolutely free to just be ourselves in harmony with all.
When all questions dissolve.
When answers spring with precise conviction.
When clarity arises spontaneously.
When you don’t need approval about what you ‘know in your heart’
When you are ‘being understanding’ not just understanding
When life is not resisted.
In freedom there are synchronicities and possibilities. One’s life is not perfect but ebbs and flows through many possibilities.
Is there an end to the possibilities if one is truly free?
Perhaps, the possibilities end when the experiences end.
No experiences means no love and the end of life?
Maybe no experiences means to reach the end of this human life. Maybe nothing or the absence of something is Truth.
Delusion like love is never truly rational.
Delusion can be contradicting and cause disturbance.
Love does not cause disturbance.
Truth is certain or has no contradictions. Truth has no duality or dichotomy. Love is harmony.
Harmony is Truth. Truth is Love. Love is Truth.
Truth is not a method. Therefore, Love is not a method.
Is love your method or scheme to achieve more...?
