Is it more difficult to accept another person's situation and experiences while in a state of love for that person?
or is it more difficult to accept another person's interpretation of love and care for you?
if love is an act, emotional or otherwise, directed towards another, and not acceptance in it's origins, is it not love but rather a form of assault?
And show me valid proof, that love is always to be associated with only light and goodness... I say the association is only within the illusion of minds, the result of poor observational skills. An erroneous assumption suggesting light and love are valid while darkness and shadow are invalid... this is the way of ambiguity that leads to destruction we see every day.
If you are love then, How is it possible to be loved? This is a feedback loop, Ouroboros, Death! The serpent of love devouring itself into nothing.
I believe that we have a hard time accepting other people when we fail to love and accept ourselves. When we do not really love and accept ourselves, we start projecting our inner shadows on external people. We start disliking and judging them and we have a hard time trusting them. Our inner state is that way, so our external projection shows us exactly that. We perceive and with our perception we create our reality. This is just so true.
To me, love begins as self love. Only when we learn to love and to appreciate ourselves, we can genuinely feel this same energy towards other people and with no "logical cause" behind. Society has taught us that loving ourselves is bad, its egocentric and selfish... But lacking self love is completely disempowering.
Love is not just a cute and fashionable word... Love is energy and vibration which creates realities. Its the most powerful force for those capable of understanding it. When you lose all love for yourself, you lose your life. You are dead inside while you breathe. Inner self love may be the best gift we could grant ourselves.
People can call me a lunatic or whatever, I do not care. Inner love brings life and joy back. It allows us to love others and creates better realities around us. Its all energy and physics as well as spirituality (to me, the same).
And love is not always light and happiness! Love can def hurt big time, and it does. Love hurts and brings shadows to the surface. Love, real love, shows us what we need to see. Why do you think that spirituality which is a way to find real love and connection, starts by showing us our shadows? Its Love itself acting in our life, bringing great pain into our existence! Making us feel miserable, yes that same love that makes us feel deeply accepted, supported and at peace.
We simply do not have all answers and we do not fully understand the nature of Love and how it affects us. There is a bigger mystery than what we can usually see, but its very real. The whole world is being helplessly shifted because of that force alone, I keep that in mind and do not underestimate the worth of the energy of Love.
