What love is and what it is not

What love is and what it is not

Love is pure. Like pure consciousness.

When you are experiencing this love you are filled with these good feelings.

Feelings like compassion, understanding, kindness and goodwill.

From that place of love we all do well in life.

We feel connected to one another, we respect life and we are naturally willing to see the good in others and seek the common good.

What love is not is that it’s not jealousy. It’s not about wanting something from someone so that we can feel better. Not about accepting the other person only if.

It’s not necessarily about lifelong relationships or living in harmony with the other person all the time.

Love is a state of mind that every single one of us has access to.

Some people are so busy with their lives and minds that they visit this state only rarely and for short periods of times. Others they live their lives from this state of mind and only visit something that is less very shortly.

What is common for all of us is that the longer periods of time we spend in love, the more pleasant and enjoyable are our lives. The more we enjoy other people, our relationships and whatever it is that we are doing in the moment.

The more we are able to enjoy simple things.

And on the other hand the less time we spend feeling love, the more miserable we feel and the more bored with life and other people we become.

Love is a feeling state that colours our world.

One minute we may feel incredible grateful for everything that we have. Only for a moment later to feel like the worst person in the world if we fall out of that feeling of love, without any changes in our outside circumstances.

It’s not that when we find that perfect other person we find love.

But when we find that feeling from within us, we are also able to enjoy our relationships.

It’s when we first find the feeling from within we draw more loving people into our lives. We draw love out of other people in the most beautiful ways.

What love is and what it is not?

Love is impersonal, unconditional and pure. It’s never personal.

Yet, when we show up from that feeling of love, we are also able to bring it into our personal lives and relationships.

But it always starts from within. From that place of impersonal.

With love,
Heidi
