Shopping Cart Love??
February 21, 2018
You must leave the shopping cart behind as you go home. Home is where you are in the place where you are most comfortable. LUGGING the past is to not empty the carts of yesteryear of issues that have grown stale and needing emptying for a fresh start. Lugging is luggage of the ‘ages’ long gone, but still getting attention consciously or unconsciously. You see things through eye glasses out of focus with the fog or pollutants of the past. On a clear day within you, you can see everything with a positive outlook.
Your parents and their parents and their parents, and theirs, on infinitum, have given birth after birth passing on their unresolved damages to the new born who find themselves saddled with the same attachments to issues that need ‘letting go’ of to move through life with an open heart and mind. Life can be an uphill climb much of the time and doing it without extra weight on our backs is certainly the way to go. Why let yourself being taken advantage of by things that are in the past. Each day is a new game, as they say in baseball, and not one that needs the lugging of yesterdays bad days.
Life is waiting for you right here and now! Be like a threshing machine moving through a wheat field. Keep moving and always in a proactive, upward motion in heart and consciousness. You have a blind date with a stranger! Guess who? It’s the inner you – pure, innocent, and undamaged ready to be an example of the conscious man or woman that is part of being a light unto the world. One key to evolving in spirit is to be sensitive to all circumstances whether it’s to another person or to inanimate objects, or even yourself. Claiming yourself, as most do, that you’re being sensitive, be sure and ‘walk you talk’. Talk of claims is cheap, the proof is in the pudding.
When in the present moment, you break the continuity of your story, the past and the future. Then the love and intelligence arises from the heart. The only way love can come into your life is not through form, but from the innermost speciousness this is ‘presence’. Love is without form. Love comes through the senses invisibly nourishing all your being. Break with attachments of the past lovingly, and accept the moment of who you are, for that is the present! You are entitled to freedom and enjoyment as the universe’s blessings! Be open to the present, together with the ‘now moment’ and your heart you can build infinite presents.
