It Is Always So

Sometimes I wonder if Love is just an altogether impossible thing to think about.

That there is a Love so utterly and completely devoted to my existence, so completely and endlessly giving of itself, is an awareness too fine to chisel into words. I'm surrounded and completely immersed in This. I'm never for a moment apart from it or separated from it. Never does it cease flowing through me and coming to me. Never does it cease anchoring me while at the same time setting me free in every way. Never does it lift its gaze off from me. Never does its light dim. Never do I cease to be a woven part of all that It is.

No matter where I go, no matter my movement or state of mind, I'm always inside of it as much as I'm made from it - all ways.

Irrevocably inseparable. Irreversibly tied. Knotted. Entangled.

We dream of such a love, a love we can never be apart from, a love that is so completely devoted to us that we never part even for a single breath, a love that never lifts its eye off of us. We dream of an adoring love that exalts us to the heights of infinity. We dream of soaring. We dream of feeling. We dream of drowning, consuming every atom of our being in the bliss of falling in love.

All the while not remembering we can only wish it were so because we've known it be some instant before we forgot our name, we knew the immense Love of our Beginning. Every part of us knows This. Every part of us recognizes it no matter what name we give it.

My heart is burning a hole through my skin.

I am in awe of this Love.

Love is real and so steady in its existence.

Love where you are, it is the ground of True Love no matter how it appears.

in Love,

Baby Smiles as Meditation

You know when you're having a frazzled day and something pops up in your face to get you to slow down, get back to earth, and just remember how amazing life is? Today, that something for me was a smiling baby.

In my mad dash to get all my errands done, I was up in my head rushing through the aisles of the store and running through the checklist in my head. I get that way now and again, forgetting to breathe deeply and relax into my moments. I can't even say it's the human condition or the world we live in. It's not any of that, it's forgetting to remember or overlooking the ease and flow that's always here to carry us when we remember to just slow it all down.

I look up as I push my cart around, and there he is, this little round faced ball of happiness just staring at me. The moment our eyes meet, he breaks into a huge smile like my turning to look at him was all he was waiting for, like we're bff's who haven't seen each other in ages and are about…

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden:
The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level. 

To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments. 

To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation. 

To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone else.

The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe

When a book clearly articulates a map of "time" that makes the most sense, you have to go get yourself a copy of that book...

“Nows within this now, rather like snapshots in an album. Each Now is separate and a world unto itself, but the richly structured Nows 'know' about one another because they literally contain one another in certain essential respects. As consciousness surveys many things at once in one Now, it is simultaneously present, at least in part, in other Nows. This awareness of many things in one could well exist in a much more pronounced form in other places in Platonia.” ― Julian Barbour
