Love is free like your breath, but love unlike breath, takes more of your choice in the amount and quality. You control ultimately, the depth of the love you experience. The word ‘love’ has meaning in whatever language to the extent of the emotion behind it, and the ‘clearness of that emotion’. The day you were born you saw and felt the beginning of love from a mother who felt her love of you. Then the journey of love experiences began and set love patterns for the future.
As life evolves, ‘love of’ has infinite connections and connotations. Every second, every moment is for you to experience the best you can and from your higher self. The opportunity to love to some degree is all around and not to be missed. Those who live life from the physical, mental and monetary will rarely find the mysteries of love and the spiritual, except from their myopic viewpoint which rarely is available to opening their heart.
We’ve always heard of great minds, and yet without consideration being given to, ‘is there a great, open heart to go along with that? The ‘mind’ can be a wonderful asset, but if not in conjunction with a lightness of heart, is more likely to find it seeking ways to benefit themselves on a mental, material level. The full open heart needs no religion or path but it’s openness to love especially in the personal sense. Mind and it’s wants often keeps the heart in a cell of darkness thinking that it knows everything. Always open the mind and unwind while being guided by hearts feelings of love and sensitivity.
The active mind is a jailer of the heart that ignores loves potential depths as a frivolous and unnecessary partner in what it wants. Living in the world of mind, money, and the physical slowly closes any behavior of the heart in it’s slow downward slide into its trap of seeing life as a succession of burdens and calamities. Each of us, no matter how hard our childhood was, is the master of our lives. As has been said many times, the wise person is one who knows, what they do not know.
I’ve heard that in ancient China, the Taoists taught that a constant inner smile, a smile to oneself, insured health, happiness and longevity. Why? Smiling to yourself is like basking in love; you becomes your own best friend. Living with an inner smile is to live in harmony with yourself. In this day of masks that hide smiles from others, treasure your inner one. Unmask the heart!
