Can you see yourself from someone who has clear vision, or do you even know someone who does? Likely you don’t, or can’t see them if you do because of all the chatter in your mind from self criticism to self aggrandizement. If you’re over 25-30, and haven’t corrected what ‘ails’ your mind from the past, you have a big journey ahead of you, if you have the courage, and unselfishness. AS we go from one year to another we often get more clever especially as the years go on. This is the greatest time in life to find deep self love. Why blow it and point fingers everywhere but between your ears and the great insufficiently used heart you have?
Understanding may be looked at as ‘standing under the mind’ – BE the perceiver of the inside…Loving love, and may the love be easy to find…and not a stranger. Magnifying a virtue to a place where it doesn’t deserve to occupy needs to be acknowledged. Stepping outside of who you’ve become attached to think is you, is TO realize that the ‘you’ is merely a FALSE CONSTRUCT and constant rerun of both the good and the unresolved issues from earlier years that you ignore.
Most with many assets come along with negative obstacles within that go round and round like a hamster in a spinning cage. Cleverness to avoid confrontation with another, especially a ‘partner’ allows deception and is like a hidden poison for both you and certainly your partner once the truth is revealed, and could hurt many. People who love themselves be they meditators or living a life of self love, communicate all things with nothing hidden. What goes around goes around until truth finds its way.
The unintended consequence of ‘safety’ and not questioning in alertness is for example like watching the little white man when to cross the street where more accidents happen in those places because we forgot to look both ways. Being stuck in the mud of past hurts and old injustices have a way of keeping us stuck in our tracks, unable to move forward or experience joy. It can take a radical reboot to get past yesterday…. Get out of any emotional quicksand. Mental decisions of doing that helps, but the ‘emotional’ needs more help than the mind. Meditation will ultimately help to detach from the embedding of past habits Time flies and you are here now to be a ‘christ-like/Buddha-like being. Sometimes life creates bad memories but you need to find the best you. Never mind the distractions, don’t forget your purpose is to be a light of love. Truth is the best path.
