Love is not the emotional and physical kind that most people know it as. Love is not a fluctuating unstable negative emotion. Love is not greed, possession, owning, attachment, neediness, desire, infatuation, lust, craving, addiction, jealousy, anger, control, blame, guilt, or judgmentalism. These are all selfish attributes, so it’s not really love at all. That which is selfish can’t be love because love is selfless. True happiness will never form in a relationship based on those things. You cannot have or own another person when we are all free.
Love is good intent. Love is service. Love is selfless. Love is devotion. Love is respect. Love is kindness. Love is compassion. Love is good will. Love is forgiveness. Love is acceptance. Love is tolerance. Love is neutrality. Love is unconditional. Love is non-selective. Love is all-encompassing. Love is pure. Love is Divine. Love is Eternal.
Love is a way of being in the world. It’s the full blown radical forgiveness and acceptance of absolutely everything, as it is right now in this very moment, always.
Love is an INFINITE resource. It cannot be exhausted or used up.
The more you give, the more you are able to give. The more you love, the more you can, and everybody has to start with where they are right now.
Love should not be given because you expect something in return.
It is done out of selflessness (the absence of self). It’s not about getting. It’s about giving with no thought of reward. Not even a “thank you” should be needed or expected because that’s neediness. “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Love for the sake of loving.
Neediness often pushes other people away. Relationships “fail” because people are searching outwardly for happiness and love. Relationships fail to work because we’re trying to get, gain and obtain love. We are meant to share and give the happiness and love that we ALREADY ARE, with others. In doing so, it grows constantly and continuously within the one who is giving and sharing it. Love is then experienced by being it yourself. Love is experienced from within, which means the source of it is WITHIN, when it’s chosen. Love is not an outside source. It’s already inside you. You make love happen to yourself by loving others and by being love yourself.
We give and share the happiness and love that we are by simply BEING it. When we choose to be it, it’s automatically being shared with others. Doesn’t the energy of a room suddenly change when a particular person enters it? “Everything is energy.” It doesn’t require any “doing”. Just be love/peace. In becoming a better person yourself (losing the selfish self), you will be helping all others (and yourself) in turn.
There is no longer a “special” individual to love when all is loved equally and unconditionally. When all is equal nobody is “more important” than anybody else. Real Love is all-encompassing. It’s not selective, choosy, picky, fussy, judgmental, or discriminatory. Real love, when unobstructed by false individual opinions, beliefs, perceptions, thought processes and emotionalism is unconditional and non-selective, no matter what. No matter what.
That’s why this is love that actually works! And that’s the difference between Divine Love and emotional “love”.—http://www.thetruthsoflife.com/divine-love.html (via brknhrtd12)
