even if you get love, it is never enough.
In the next moment, the demand reasserts itself,
and you need to be loved again.
But as soon as you let go, there is knowing
in that instant that there is love here already.
The mind is afraid to let go of its demand
because the mind thinks that if it lets go, it is not
going to get what it wants - as if demanding works. "
It changes form.
It is alchemy.
This Osho quote stirs my heart because it reminds me of the first desire I had to know something about being in love with life.
My first inquiry was "do I enjoy myself?" I had heard the spiritual teacher Adyashanti end all of his messages with those two words: Enjoy Yourself. It dawned on me that I didn't know that experience directly. I enjoyed things, good experiences, food, dance, books, beauty, other people... yet I couldn't say with any kind of certainty that I enjoyed myself.
This simple question and wanting to know
Enjoy yourself means you have to know who you are. It turns into a love of life. It is infinitely creative.
"Love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths.
We let go of one phase, one aspect of love, and enter another.
Passion dies and is brought back.
Pain is chased away and surfaces another time.
To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many endings, and many many beginnings- all in the same relationship.”
My soul is innately curiosity. It has a thirst for mystery and adventure. This longing led me to places outside of my comfort zone. It took me into my wilderness.
I exhausted myself writing, writing, writing until something that was mine started to emerge.
The first question that came through was this:
Do we really have to choose between practical & magical?
there is a field.
I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other"
doesn't make any sense."
~ mevlana jelaluddin rumi ~13th century
Do we really believe it is all random?
When we encounter the setbacks, the dishwasher breaking, the late night emergency visit, the car breaking down, those hindrances to our neat and tidy life and routine, do we notice the synchronicity? Do we see the obstacle as the path? Can we see how life is so ingenious?
Or, when life interrupts from time to time do we say “shit happens”… or “life happens” as if it happens only when something is unfavorable.
And what about the wonderful unexpected surprises of life?
How many of those do we experience?
I love talking about the wonderful unexpected experiences. Don't you?
