Love

Standard

“Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. It is not dependent on some other body, some external form. In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love.

The reason why the romantic love relationship is such an intense and universally sought-after experience is that it seems to offer liberation from a deep-seated state of fear, need, lack, and incompleteness that is part of the human condition in its unredeemed and unenlightened state. There is a physical as well as a psychological dimension to this state.

The moment that judgment stops through acceptance of what is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace. First you stop judging yourself; then you stop judging your partner. The greatest catalyst for change in a relationship is complete acceptance of your partner as he or she is, without needing to judge or change them in any way. That immediately takes you beyond ego. All mind games and all addictive clinging are then over. There are no victims and no perpetrators anymore, no accuser and accused. This is also the end of all codependency, of being drawn into somebody else’s unconscious pattern and thereby enabling it to continue. You will then either separate – in love – or move ever more deeply into the Now together – into Being.” – Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now

Greatest Teacher

Standard

Do you ever wish you could go back to a younger age in life?  I’ve heard many people say they wish they were younger but only if they knew then what they know now.  What do you know now?  Have your learned from your past experiences?  Experiences can sting us and teach us not to do that again or positive experiences can motivate us to keep doing what we’re doing.  We learn more from our experiences than anything no matter if they’re good or bad.  Experiences are our greatest teachers.  Oscar Wilde wrote this great quote:

“Experience is the hardest kind of teacher. It gives you the test first and the lesson afterward.”

Presence is a Present

Standard

The most important time in your life is the present moment.  It’s what you are doing right here right now in this moment and every moment in life.  The past is gone.  You made memories and some were good but some were not-so-good.  Cherish the good and erase the not-so-good.  Don’t dwell on the past and what you should have done.  There is nothing you can do about the past.  I’ve heard so many people say I wish I knew back then what I know now.  Okay now is here and your chance to shine.  This is your moment.  Three is no need to worry about what lies ahead of you and what ‘might’ happen. You will only be wasting valuable time.  Yes, you can make plans and establish goals for the future, but you do that in the present moment.  Focus on the here and the now.  It’s where you need to be all the time.
