World’s Apart in Love
November 24, 2017
Sometimes it’s ‘word’s apart in love’ that makes ‘world’s apart in love’! Moments in love often come and go. ‘In and out love’ with another is love in its fickle state often stuck in immobility except for flashes of ‘all being right’. Love, unknown to most, is a spiritual path that few make the climb or flight to. Love is too often mistreated. Love is delicate needing mutual giving, or if it reveals itself as ‘flighty’ from moment to moment, only an opening unconditionally if both hearts offer the blisses and joys that are always available. Love that’s trying to find itself out of it’s weakness’s, is a scared love that may protect itself through fleeing or strangely putting up many kinds of resistance.
More to the point, what happens if you’re satisfied to live out the rest of your life and love, inside the space of what YOU assume is the ‘false’ real you? The process of creating reality never ends, it’s an ongoing voyage. It’s the reason things become new. It’s the reason boredom loses. It’s the reason you have no end. It’s the reason you can’t be stopped. Love has no end, but when weak, mixes like a cocktail with negatives, becoming a roller coaster of love and darker moments rather than the merry-go-round of the mutual harmony it can be.
A quote from Martin Luther King: ‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannon’t drive out hate; only love can do that.’ Turn the lights on of awareness and communication from the heart. You rarely have not created the love circumstances you find yourself in. Go deeper with compassion and empathy, and the answers to how to better love yourself, and have the other do likewise, will come to you. Change in behavioral habits for better results is you using the godliness within you.
The ‘gap of love’ is a ‘selfie’ or self choice as that ‘gap’ cries out in your emotions and mind to ‘fix me’. People who are difficult to communicate with at times can be very defensive about their communication without having the empathy and compassion to see that the other may be coming from a more practical or common sense point of view. Even if you are the more sensible one, it is incumbent that you swallow any confrontation by being in your heart. ‘Skillful means’ is one of the greatest spiritual techniques to smooth communication with another even if it challenges you to the limit and depths of your heart.
When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, remember there is always hope. Learn from the past, live for the day, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning, adjusting, and seeking the best way in all situations. As ‘Bruce Lee’ the famous actor and martial arts and cultural icon said, “To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.” Make love your first priority and opportunity!
