We seek to be Loved from others…but we are already Love itself!
We seek for gifts from others because we want to feel special…but we are already gifts ourselves to make others special.
We seek to Love others…but we forget to Love ourselves First…
We are all Loved and Lovers…capable of receiving and giving love freely and unconditionally in this moment when we are fully aware of our Loving Presence…
When we can learn to practice or even try to come to an understanding of the freeing feeling that comes by letting go, to release the need for control of any sort,the clinging tendencies solely to pleasant sensations and ‘high’ moods,Can we come close to simply being present to all states we experience(good and bad alike) in equanimity and not get trapped in a ‘yo-yo’ effect,that up and down moody states that affects our own peacefulness and that of others.We do this by being present and watching ourselves,being mindful of our thoughts,speech, deeds(the habitual and addictive activities that is energy draining and tiresome)and emotional expressions( are we being judmental,critical and condescending of ourselves and others?).
