End of Love at 25
Dec. 27, 2014
Growth in love is generally over by the time a person reaches their mid 20’s. Without a concerted focus on most inner qualities, especially love, reaching the peak of what to expect for the rest of your life has likely been reached early in life. The peaks of human possibilities in love only come naturally with a clearness of one’s inner attachment to blocks. The ego often obscures truthful thinking with limited thinking of ‘what has been experienced is all there is’. Like athleticism, when experienced just in your local community it has little to do with how it would show up at the peaks of athleticism in the outer world.
Outer skills frequently improve with aging, at least to a certain point. Love isn’t a mind thing, but the mind can decide to let go of obstacles by being free to opening the heart. The obstacles in the mind that put gates around the heart are deeply rooted early in ones life, and without a concerted focus using methods to open the heart, nothing more is likely to occur in an evolution of the spirit of love.
Change begins with doing what’s necessary to make change happen, and that begins with examining the self both inner and outer relative to what is the highest possibility. None of us live in a vacuum. Others are mirrors to you. Seek those or someone who is an evolved person showing deep sensitivity and compassion. Observe both your inner and outer self relative to their manifestation. Pay special attention to one and those who have an open heart with sensitive expressions. The biggest problem may be finding that ‘one’ to reflect from. In the past, that ‘one’ was called a mystic or ‘awakened one’. The reality is that it may be an ordinary person who you may meet among the crowds, and who doesn’t regard themselves as any different than anyone else, but is clearly the ‘watcher’ of the floating illusions and mysteries of life and love.
To know oneself is to see the heights of the inner qualities, and walk in the shoes of those qualities. The material world is but an illusion always as a mask to the inner beauties that we all possess, but few take the time to see. One other mask is the ‘ego’ that is filled with infinite types of barriers to hear and see that you are fighting within themselves while convinced it’s ‘others’. Most are initiators of battles both within themselves and with others who may do battle, but not as the initiator. Love doesn’t initiate disharmony, but always seeks to rise above it and maintain it’s flight of bliss and joy.
Love is like a tree. Once it’s roots and growth are set early in its life, it’s path of continued growth remains in the same direction. Only mediation and willful focus can unbend the direction. No time is too late, but as time passes the possibilities close to near impossibility. Why let love be an unfinished symphony with life’s choices of medicating and covering up what awaits your awareness and heart opening?
