The most misused word in this world
No word is used and misused more on this planet than the word "love".
one thing that i am deeply sure about is that we all come to this planet as perfeclty lovable creatures.
I mean, look at a baby. a baby is love and perfection in its purest shape. a baby is fully non judgemental and fully open to life.
"Love is what we come with and judgements is what we learn."
From the moment that we are born, we are born into a social construct which shapes our experiences and our views on our personal reality. Our mind, which was pure when we came to this planet, starts being shaped, molded and formed by the outside world.
We need the recognition of the outside world, because for the first time we are experiencing ourselves as a seperate being, which has the desire to be accepted by it's surroundings.
So we swallow everything we are told, unconsciously hoping that if we follow the rules of the ones who could love us, they will truly love us.
"WE WOULD DO ANYTHING TO BE LOVED."
I LIKE TO KEEP THINGS SIMPLE, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THEY CAN BE IF WE ALLOW IT:
the only desire that we come with is to love and be loved.
we dont want more than that!
We all want to be loved exactly the way we are and exactly the way we want to experience and express ourselves.
And we all want to love, exactly the way that feels right for each of us.
love is not just a thing between to people.
"love is life itself"
Love is the desire to express yourself however it feels most natural and pleasurable to you.
love is all the things that you would like to try on this planet.
love is the "Job" that you decided to do.
love is the house that you wish to live in.
love is everything that you would like to experience and create on this planet.
Love is our natural desire to experience ourselves as who we are and who we want to be.
but this desire is strongly surpressed because of the restrictions we are giving to ourselves and each other.
As a child we feel free to be anyone we want to be.
as an adult we think we have to be someone and we have to do something.
We are learning that we need to be a functioning part of society, otherwise we are not worthy.
"THE GREATEST SICKNESS THERE IS, IS THAT WE THINK WE ARE NOT LOVABLE THE WAY WE ARE."
we don't think so, because this is the truth. we think so because it has been imprinted within us from our parents, social envitronment, teachers etc.
If you need an example, look at a young child and how freely it is expressing and how joyous it is experiencing the world and itself.
Children are pure because they haven't been shaped by social ideas of how one has to be and what one has to do, yet.
BUT THE FACT IS:
THAT PURITY IS NEVER LOST!
Since we all came to this planet with that joyous and open mind, this is something that is rooted deep within us. You can actually say that this is our nature. our nature is the pure interest in life and in ourselves. We are constantly changing, rearraning, becoming, growing, learning new things, discovering ourselves.
AS CHILDREN WE ARE AWARE OF THE GIFT OF LIFE THAT WAS GIVEN TO US.
but our society is stiff and rigid.
we don't see life as a gift, we see it as a duty.
and if you treat life as a duty, you don't see if for what it is:
An everchanging experience of free and limitless discoveries.
A gift to fully express and experience oneself through the love that you feel towards yourself and life.
And the more you treat life as a duty and not as a gift, you'll do so with others and the world.
You judge others by the perception of your own experiences.
You judge others by the limitations that you have learned to be your own.
You judge others by their look, because the superficiality of society doesn't allow you to be happy with who you are.
You judge others because you have learned that you are not good enough the way you are.
"YOU JUDGE OTHERS BECAUSE YOU JUDGE YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN JUDGED."
can you see now, that this is an endless chain reaction that we are living by?
We are not living love.
We are living judgements and assumptions.
THE ONLY WAY TO BREAK THE CHAIN IS TO START LOVING YOURSELF.
So what is love?
it is everyones unique and limitless expression of themselves.
and that is why it can't be put into a box.
because just like the infinite universe, the vastness of us human beings and the vastness of nature and life itself is infinite.
there are no duplicates!
WE ALL ARE ORIGINALS.
WE ALL ARE PERFECT THE WAY WE ARE.
WE ALL ARE BORN LOVABLE.
my deepest desire for all of us beautiful human beings is to realise, understand and live by that.
"THE MORE YOU LOVE YOURSELF, THE MORE YOU LOVE EACH OTHER AND THE WORLD."
how can we learn to love?
